A concerned netizen’s post went viral on social media. It was discovered that a food delivery rider still falls victim to a “ghost” customer in the midst of a pandemic.

The netizen took it on Facebook to share the bad experience of food delivery app riders from heartless pranksters.

On Facebook, netizen Bernard Enriquez shared how 3 food delivery riders showed up to their 9-door apartment, looking for a certain “Jane Castro”.

The catch, however, is that no Jane Castro lives there. That is when they all realized that this is a case of “fake booking”.

Fake Booking is when customers order food from an app, but will cancel last minute, resulting to food getting wasted.

According to Bernard, “Jane Castro” first ordered milk tea and food from Jollibee, totaling PHP 1,500.

Her third order was in bulk. She ordered 25 Mang Inasal PM1 boxes, plus Halo-Halo and lots of extra rice. All of that is worth PHP 5,800.

In addition to this, the deliver rider even had to go back to the store to pick up the second batch of her order.

Furthermore, Bernard shared that the “ghost” customer was replying to the drivers at first. But after a few messages, she was unresponsive and cannot be reached anymore.

Bernard felt sorry about what happened to the drivers, that he and his neighbors decided to chip in and buy all the food instead.

The post immediately went viral and a lot of netizens are angry that some people really think pranking is a good idea in this situation.

As of this writing, the post already has 176K reactions and 116K shares.
