Jakarta Police to investigate fake food delivery orders
The Jakarta Post
Following a number of media reports about alleged fake orders from a user of the Go-Jek application, the East Jakarta Police have formed a team to investigate the case.
A joint force will be assigned to investigate the case, find the perpetrator and avoid similar problems in the future, East Jakarta Police head Sr. Comr. Andry Wibowo said.
"The news had gone viral. We will find out whether this was a crime or just a prank. It'll generate more problems and anxiety among members of the public if we don't take any action," he said on Sunday as quoted by kompas.com.
He said that the police had assigned his subordinates to question Julianto Sudrajat, who reportedly had numerous orders delivered to him from the Go-Food section of the ride-hailing app, causing him to pay for meals he supposedly never ordered. The police planned to meet with Go-Food management on Monday, Andry said.
Julianto, a private bank employee in Matraman, East Jakarta, said that he had received a large number of orders for food that he did not order, causing him to spend millions of rupiah to pay for the service.
He said that the orders may have been made by an individual who disliked him. (Fac)
