- A netizen shared the story of a delivery rider who got scammed for P13,000 after he received orders from alleged "doctors"
- The rider received an order of P6,000-worth of food to be delivered to a hospital clinic
- The rider was also asked to buy other foodstuff such as soda and that he also needed to purchase a load of P1,000 each for five doctors
- The manager of the rider needed to claim him from the load store, because he did not have enough money to pay for the load, on top of the huge amount of food orders that were made
A rider was scammed to the tune of P13,000 after he was asked to buy huge amounts of food and load five doctors with P1,000 each.
The rider's unfortunate story went viral online after a concerned netizen, who was also from one of the stores that the rider bought the goods from, uploaded it.
The story was uploaded by Ronzy Alipato and the rider concerned was JM Palomo of Bacolod City.
Ronzy narrated that the scammer ordered P6,000 worth of food and that when he was already on his way to deliver the food to the clinic, the scammer called again and asked him to buy other foodstuff and soda.
Worse, he was asked to load P1,000 each for the alleged five doctors, and when he could not produce the said amount, the scammer talked to the cashier, with a promise that a white Innova is on its way to make payment.
When the P1,000 load was delivered, the scammer could no longer be contacted.
Alipato warned all riders about such scammers and also sought help for the poor rider.
Food delivery services are very popular nowadays, especially with limited transportation available. Among the popular ones are Grab Food and FoodPanda.
A food delivery rider was lauded by netizens after it sacrificed so much to protect the food of his customer, including braving the flooded street.
There was also another rider who lost P1,036 because his order was canceled by a customer despite the fact that he already paid for them.
