Despite multiple warnings and multiple signboards, why do some Malaysians still think it’s okay to litter everywhere?

PDRM has been making house visits to litterbugs who have been throwing their garbage in places that have a clear sign saying that you’re not supposed to litter there.

According to the Facebook group, Info Roadblock JPJ/Polis, the litterers were detected by the addresses from the delivery packages they threw away.

Besides this being a clear violation of the law and desecration of the environment, disposing of your delivery packages in such a manner also makes it easier for scammers. On 14 December 2020, a video went viral on social media yesterday where a scammer obtains a person’s private information from the discarded delivery package. Using that, the scammer starts calling and harassing the customer, demanding for money. Not only that, but the scammer also visits the person’s house disguising as a delivery worker and asked for COD payment for a fake product.

Responding to this, Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Zainuddin Yaacob said in a statement that to further convince their victims, the scammer will use the method like an original package delivery worker where they were reportedly even told to scan a barcode before they could accept the ordered item.

Always remember to dispose of your trash in a responsible manner, not only for the environment but also to avoid being scam victims!
