Kris Bernal revealed on her Instagram how she received an overwhelming amount of random food deliveries, despite not having made any transactions to purchase said food.
Quoting Kris, “Sadly, the amount of the deliveries are no joke. Even 2 vans arrived at our house saying that I will be picked up.” In another post, she continued “I’m not the only victim here but also the [GRAB] RIDERS na nag-seserbisyo lamang and went all the way here to deliver several orders. I really feel bad for the riders’ efforts. This thing has been prevalent lately.”
All of the orders that arrived were all addressed to a person name Jen Jen Manalo.
The concerned actress reached out to the service provider to plead for their assistance, in terms of resolving the root of the scam and how the riders can be compensated accordingly. She posted updates on social media; with the most recent stating that she received a total of 23 food delivery orders.
Kris stated, “I neither have enemies nor did I offend someone. I have no idea who did this and I can’t remember any incident that triggered this to happen. All I know is I didn’t do anything wrong to someone for me to deserve this kind of treatment. What saddens me the most is I’m not the only one affected in this situation but also the Grab drivers who were victims of the fake deliveries. I really hope that there was even a bit of sympathy to the riders. They are the main victims here.”
Netizens were quick to express their sympathy over the recent incident, agreeing that the suspect behind this should be justly penalized.
“To all the small businesses whom I promoted, continually promote, and will promote someday, please be informed that I DO NOT SUPPORT ANY OF THESE BOGUS BUYERS. Please do a cross checking and don’t allow them if they pretend to be my assistant and ask for free goods. I’ll never ask someone to order for me. I’ll order and buy it personally,” Kris remarked.
Nearly a week prior to the incident, Kris got married to her longtime boyfriend Perry Choi.
