Carousell, a Singapore-owned online marketplace, features buying and selling of various items. Clothes, shoes, and electronic devices are the goods typically being auctioned off on Carousell, but unusual and humorous things pop up from time to time.
There was nothing humorous about what Netizen Michael S. discovered on Carousell. Singapore user @maid.recruitment’s listing featured domestic workers from Indonesia, complete with clear photos of their faces and personal descriptions. Some of the listings of the workers were even marked as “sold”. The listing, which has sparked an inquiry by Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower (MOM), has since been removed by Carousell.
