Man reports S'pore driver who used his card to pay for petrol in JB
"To the lady driver of SKXXXXXH that conveniently took my card and charged your petrol purchase, I hope you are happy using somebody's else's money (sic),” said a justifiably angry Mr Leonard Chia.
Mr Chia, 37, a facilities manager, wrote about how his lost YouTrip card was misappropriated by a Singapore driver at a petrol kiosk in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, on the Complaint Singapore Facebook Page on Sunday (July 23).
YouTrip card is a prepaid Mastercard. And fortunately for Mr Chia, it is a safer choice in case of lost or stolen card incidents.
Sharing the CCTV footage of the woman using his card, he said: "Luckily, the four packs of cigarettes are cash only.
“The attendant said you wanted to tap a second time. Your UOB One card cannot tap then use my YouTrip (sic)..."
A screenshot of a payment of RM37.40 ($10.96) under Mr Chia's YouTrip card paid on July 23 at 5pm at Petron Taman Pelangi, JB, was also posted.
Many netizens told him to make a police report.
A user said: "A lot of people think picking up a credit card is like finding cash on the floor, "finders, keepers". Fyi, it is not, it is fraud."
Mr Chia agreed: "Exactly, there's a name to it. And making a payment is a conscious effort.
“By tapping on the UOB card and then changing to somebody else's card also is a conscious choice."
Mr Chia told AsiaOne that he has since made a police report in Singapore.
