Finally receiving your much-awaited package delivery is one of life’s simple joys. However, some packages take too much time to arrive, and sometimes you never even get them. You are then left to wonder what could have happened to your package, and where in the world it might have gotten lost.
But a recent viral post showed an uncomfortable if not alarming possibility regarding where lost packages go.
A photo posted on the Facebook page, Viral Media Malaysia, showed several people buying what looked like DHL parcels from a Ramadan Bazaar stall in Kangar, Perlis Malaysia.
The post indicated that the seemingly unclaimed DHL delivery packages were being sold for RM 15 (S$4.92) each. The packages, marked with logos of DHL Express Malaysia, varied in sizes but were left unopened and the contents unknown.
Netizens wondered how the parcels even got there. Some netizens commented that the parcels should have been returned to the sender or properly disposed of. Others said that the parcels were not halal since they are considered stolen goods.
First time tgk orang lelong barang pos yg tak claim. Sekotak RM15. Taktau apa ada kat dalam. Ada kotak besaq, ada kecik….
The Independent Singapore has reached out to DHL Express Malaysia regarding the incident.
A DHL representative said that they are currently investigating the situation, and thus, could not provide additional details yet.
“At DHL, the safety and security of our customers’ shipments are of paramount importance. We are currently conducting an internal investigation on this matter and will take the necessary actions as swiftly as possible,” DHL responded in its official statement. -/TISGFollow us on Social Media
