Service Runner Protection
Some people take advantage of the runner’s good will to help them by having them send illegal materials or substance against the law; endangering the runner.
There are plenty of things a runner can do. However there are times good intentions end up causing the runner trouble. There is always a bad apple in the apple basket but that does not mean we discard the whole basket. What we do is to have strict protocols and rules to filter out the bad apple.
To share an example, an article by Harian Metro, a food delivery personnel found packets of drugs hidden in the roti canai he was supposed to deliver. Imagine putting this into another situation, whereby a runner was tasked to collect a “parcel” to be delivered to another individual. Without knowing what is inside, get’s stopped at a road block and gets caught with weapons or worse, drugs in the parcel. That is a death sentence. Pity the runner and family please.
To avoid this situation, runners have the right to REJECT even after accepting deposit:
- Individual parcels or package. Especially those contents that are hidden
- Suspicious food delivery. Especially one that has no shop or internet background. All food takeaways must be from legitimate foodcourts and established hawker stalls.
- Running errands against the law (eg. Spying for someone, arranging an illegal meeting, cheating, stealing, collecting illegal substance, forging documents)
