This particular news from Ms. Raissa Robles‘ Twitter feed has caught my attention and I would like to share it with you.
It seems that criminals are getting more creative in finding ways to steal money from unsuspecting victims. This time, the fast food industry, is their target…. especially those that offer food delivery service.
The thief calls a fast food company pretending to order food.
Fast food company facilitates order and sends the delivery guy on his way. Normally, when deliveries leave their point of origin, they have more than one order to service especially when the areas of these orders are within close proximity. It makes perfect sense since it saves time and money. Note that usually, the delivery guy also carries with him a ton of change which he is supposedly instructed to give the customer upon payment of the bill. For example, if a customer says that he only has a 1,000.00 note for a 200.00 order, the delivery guy would be carrying 800.00 in change.
That’s just for ONE order.
