A 28 year old man who allegedly tried to sell NTUC shopping vouchers on Carousell, have been arrested by the police for the scam. The man had allegedly tried to make a quick profit by selling the vouchers but did not give his buyer the agreed amount after receiving the payment.
The police had received a report from a victim on May 16, who purchased S$500 worth of NTUC Fairprice vouchers from the man at a discounted price of S$470. After payment was made by the victim, she discovered that the envelope contained only S$250 worth of NTUC vouchers. The suspect then became uncontactable.
