The extra miles that some people are willing to go to just to avoid paying their bills are just “fascinating!”

Just recently in Seremban, a Malaysian, Ying shared an incident that happened at a restaurant, where a customer successfully scammed his way out of paying for his meals. The customer opted to pay for his meals via the Touch N’ Go QR code, or at least he made it look like he was going to pay. When no one noticed, he swiftly pasted his own printed QR code onto the OR code at the counter.

He “paid” for his meals and went on his merry way.

Unfortunately, several other customers also paid their bills to the stranger who had the audacity to stick his personal QR code at the counter. By the time Ying realized, the stranger had received more than RM100. 

“If he could earn RM100 from each shop, imagine how much he could’ve made if he visited 100 shops! He would be earning 5-figures monthly by just scamming others!”

Ying also revealed to the public that they have managed to identify the stranger, who is a 53-year-old man and stays in Seremban.

The customer realised the QR Code’s name did not tally

In the meantime, Loke, one of the workers at the restaurant said that the restaurant was crowded during the incident, with customers entering and exiting the premise at the same time.

Thanks to one of the customers who paid after the stranger, Loke was informed that the QR code did not reflect the name of the restaurant. That was when she found out something was “off” with the QR code at the counter.

However, something else was not right – the CCTV malfunctioned.

“We couldn’t get a look at the man because the CCTV malfunctioned and didn’t manage to record the man.”

Imagine if no one actually noticed the fishy QR code for the entire day. The man would’ve made hundreds, if not thousands in just a day.
