Electronic payment methods are becoming more and more common in Singapore, but some people took advantage of the loopholes and were accused of defrauding the well-known durian stalls with screenshots before payments. He repeatedly took the durians without paying, and finally got caught.

The durian stall in Ghim Moh, Ah Seng Durian posted on the social media Facebook page last night (29th) to expose the incident.
The man was accused of pretending to scan the PayNow QR code to pay, but in fact kept the screenshot before successful payment, and showed the screenshot to the booth staff, making them mistakenly think he paid.
Ah Seng Durian said that the man had escaped several times before. They knew that the man had ordered the durian yesterday, so they waited patiently for him to come.
The man did the same thing. After the staff at the booth confirmed that he had not received his payment, other staff immediately walked over from the corner and asked him if he really paid. The man said nonchalantly that he had forgotten to enter the payment amount.
“Then what did he show to our auntie at the time? Did he really forget it, or did he find a convenient excuse?”
“He has repeatedly regretted it and expressed his willingness to compensate for the money he had not paid before.” The employees further questioned what he did previously. He denied at first, but finally admitted after the employees’ questioning with video as evidence. “

“Treat others with tolerance and coexist peacefully. We accepted his apology and late payment. This matter was finally resolved in private. I hope that similar incidents will not happen again, Otherwise, we will report it without hesitation and let the relevant departments handle it. “
Ah Seng Durian also noticed that customers showed their real payment records after using cashless payment methods in front of the cashier.
This post received enthusiastic responses from netizens. Most netizens pointed out that Ah Seng durian may not be the only victim, and other vendors and stalls may have been deceived. Therefore, it is recommended to call the police. I also agree not to let the scammer go. They may repent to Ah Seng Durian and then commit crimes elsewhere.
