Without a doubt, the life of a food rider is not easy and is indeed full of daily challenges.

To make a living, they have to send food to customers, rain or shine.

Many food delivery people – often without medical benefits or health insurance – have worked very hard since the start of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Due to the hectic nature of the work, many had been involved in road accidents, including wet roads and potholes.

The list does not end there.

Most of us wouldn’t know the risks these unsung heroes face on a daily basis.

As it stands, we only interact with food delivery people when they show up at our door.

Recently a FoodPanda runner was scammed out of RM100 by a customer who disappeared after taking the food.

Fraudulent free food

In the video, the biker was sitting on the side of the road in front of a factory.

It is understood that he had come to deliver the food to a customer who works there.

However, the customer – who is only identified as ‘Nadia’ – disappeared after taking food without paying.

Internet users were outraged by this irresponsible act.

They also urged FoodPanda to refine its payment systems to better protect delivery people.

Some even offered to pay for the victim out of compassion.

Meanwhile, other food delivery people said they were similarly scammed as well.

Undoubtedly, there are a handful of incidents that have given the biker community a bad name.
