Ninja Van Launches Info Drive to Protect People From Fraudulent Deliveries
Ninja Van has launched an information drive giving useful tips for their customers to avoid fraudulent deliveries.
On Friday (February 26, 2021), the tech-enabled logistics provides launched an information drive with the aim to protect the Filipinos against fraudulent cash-on-delivery (COD) parcels happening in the country.
The courier company recorded over 200 reports of fraudulent COD deliveries over the past six months. The firm wants to ensure that the public would not fall into those frauds and schemes under cash-on-delivery payment mode.
“We urge the public to be extra prudent in receiving parcels when they are not expecting anything, especially if there is payment involved. As a logistics provider, our riders only depend on the data provided on every parcel and would only collect money if the parcel states so,” Philippines country head Martin Cu said.
The suspects were allegedly sending parcels to random unsuspecting individuals who might think that it was one of their orders. The culprits are sending parcels did not ordered by the customers.
Here are the following tips given by Ninja Van:
- Check the label. Make sure that the parcel is addressed to you or someone who lives in the same household.
- Check your online purchases. If you are certain that you did not make any purchase, kindly refuse accepting the parcel. It will not be a cost on the delivery rider.
- Check the amount. If you are considering paying for the parcel, check the amount stated on the tag and if it actually states COD.
- Check the parcel. Every time you receive a parcel, make sure that it is properly sealed and there are no signs of tampering.
- Check the credibility of sellers. Place orders only with credible websites and sellers that have positive authentic reviews or from whom you have successfully transacted with in the past.
