150 People File Police Report Against Durian Shop, Form FB Support Group
The biggest victim? An unaffiliated durian store with an almost identical name. 8days.sg investigates.
In the midst of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, online shops offering durian delivery have become a popular way of buying the king of fruits. While it’s convenient and perfect for those who prefer to safe distance, ordering durians online comes with risks. As you can’t check the durians on the spot, the chances of receiving duds are higher. And since you usually have to pay online before you receive your goods, getting a refund for a bad durian order becomes trickier. Sometimes, it may even escalate into a police case, like what happened with some customers of new local durian delivery website Durians Express Delivery, which was founded in June 2020.
