A HDB unit at Blk 468C Fernvale Link had received multiple food delivery orders allegedly made by an unlicensed moneylender on May 31.

The police confirmed with Mothership that they were alerted to the case of intentional harassment yesterday at around 1:30pm after several delivery riders were direct to the same unit with cash-on-delivery orders.

Order made by one "Saju Man"

According to Shin Min Daily News (Shin Min), the orders were made by one "Saju Man" on Foodpanda, and the payment mode was cash on delivery.

One of the orders made was S$72 worth of food from Seletar Mall's western food chain Swensen's which was delivered by a 23-year-old part-time Foodpanda rider.

When the 23-year-old arrived at the unit, he saw three other delivery persons waiting at the corridor because the owner of the unit said he/she did not make these orders.

Food worth S$1,000 in total

In total, there were more than 10 delivery riders being directed to the same unit and the total amount of food ordered was estimated to worth S$1,000, according to Shin Min.

The 23-year-old rider told Shin Min that such debt collecting method is despicable as it wasted food and the delivery riders' time.

The Police are looking into the matter.

This is not the first time that delivery riders were allegedly pranked by loan sharks:
