A netizen shared a horrible experience she had with a Gumtree seller, who sold her a stolen bag, which was eventually confiscated by the Singapore Police Force (SPF) for over 4 months while they conducted their “investigations”.
According to netizen, she had purchased the bag on Gumtree on 16 November, but was informed the very next day by an “inspector” from the Singapore Police Force that the bag was a stolen item and would be confiscated for investigations.
Feeling upset that she was going lose her bag, which was bought using her own hard earned money, she asked the officer whether she would get the bag back. However, the officer has continued to evade her questions by saying that the bag would be kept indefinitely for investigation purposes.
The netizen claims that the thief has been caught and jailed now, but her bag has yet to be returned, nor has the seller returned her the bag.
She wrote: “When I called the inspector, he sounded impatient and keep asking me to wait . And he even added that I may not get my money or only part of money back only. Is this how it works?”
