A heartless ‘YouTuber’ pranks a Malaysian woman who was selling homemade burgers to earn some extra cash amid the movement control order (MCO) being implemented in the country.
A certain Sherley Yu shared the story on Facebook, saying that she is angry on behalf of her sister who did not want to be named. According to Sherley, her sister received the order from someone who introduced herself as ‘Grace Lim’, apparently an elderly woman. Or so it was claimed.
This person ordered 20 homemade burgers, for delivery at an apartment near the Public Bank. Sherley tried asking for online payment but ‘Grace’ said she doesn’t know how to do that, and her son had already gone out.
Thinking that an old woman will surely be honest in paying up, Sherley did not insist on the online payment. After the food was done, she brought the order to the meeting place, but the customer made her wait.
The customer even asked for her car number, presumably to pick up the order from her vehicle.
Several minutes later, she was told that the order was actually a prank. The bogus customer told her to eat the burgers by herself, introducing himself as ‘Ginnyboy from YouTube’.
“Sellers, whatever is good. Strangers collect money first, online collect money. Also pay attention to the phone number, pay attention to strangers,” Sherley wrote.
“Sorry, my sister is also very upset. I hope she will not leave a message saying she brought it herself because she didn’t charge first, because sometimes i will accidentally believe the wrong person first, so I will learn this lesson next time. Add one more careful and cautious.”
Many netizens are angry at the prankster, saying that it is not good to make pranks like this. Small businesses like those owned by Sherley’s sister only have a small capital and could greatly suffer when people make bogus orders!
