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.
