In the midst of the pandemic, it is better to stay indoors. If possible, work-from-home set up is recommended and do not leave the house, especially if there’s nothing important to do outside.
Ordering online is also became one of the quickest and safest ways to buy necessities. As a result, online delivery systems like Shopee became popular and gets a lot of customers.
But an incident was shared by a netizen Ariza because of a fake Shopee delivery guy who went to their house. It was about nine o’clock in the evening when she suddenly received a text from someone who identified himself as a Shopee rider. Ariza was already suspicious in the guy at that time because she knew it was already curfew hours and no riders would deliver orders from customers such late at night.
The next morning, Ariza shared her experience and her father mentioned that there was a man waiting outside their house last night.
They looked at the recorded CCTV footage and saw in the video that the man who has a motorcycle could not be called a Shopee rider because he was wearing only shorts and slippers. Ariza also noticed that the text message sent by the unidentified man to her was far from Shopee’s text message format. Ariza also didn’t expect any items to be delivered that day, so she was worried.
Ariza then asked a Shopee rider and found out that their cut-off time for delivery was only eight o’clock. She is very thankful that she didn’t go outside of their house that night because the unidentified Shopee rider might have a bad intention to her.
Because of the hardships of life, there are many modus operandi that other people make just to earn money. So the netizen decided to share her experience to give awareness to the public. She also advised everyone to be extra careful in their surroundings to avoid cr1me and hoax.
