Bianca Manalo slams food delivery pranksters: ‘Maawa kayo!’
Bianca Manalo aired her dismay about people who place fake delivery orders of food, after an incident of a GrabFood driver who fell victim to a “fake buyer” circulated online recently.
“Nag t-trabaho sila ng maayos. Wag naman kayong bastos,” the actress said in her Instagram post on Saturday, Sept. 28.
(They are working decently. Do not be rude.)

Nag t-trabaho sila ng maayos. Wag naman kayong bastos. Ikakasikat niyo ba yang pag screenshot niyo ng mga order niyo na nag p-prank kayo? Maawa kayo! Pinag hihirapan nila ang pera nila. Nakaka frustrate.
Her post featured a screenshot of an article from a certain blog called Buzzooks regarding the incident.
“Maawa kayo!” Manalo appealed. “Pinag hihirapan nila ang pera nila. Nakaka frustrate.”
(Have mercy! They work hard for their money. [This is] frustrating.)
The incident circulated in social media after one Krizia De Lara (@xiaaaaaang) spoke about it on Twitter last Thursday, Sept. 26. She also posted photos of the driver.
De Lara said the driver approached her and her sibling at the Met Live mall in Pasay City. She added that the driver was a victim of a “fake buyer” who ordered 14 pieces of milk tea, which totaled to P1,900.
Nag yoyosi kami sa met live ng kapatid ko ng may lumapit na grab food. Na victim siya ng fake buyer na nag order ng 14pcs na milktea (total of 1900) tapos idedeliver sa Solaire kaso NO SHOW YUNG BUYER – – – – pic.twitter.com/491VsxjDbr

To make up for the cost of the order, the driver sold the cups of milk tea at lower prices to people at the said mall, De Lara said. She then appealed to Grab Philippines to address the matter to avoid similar incidents from happening again.
Hi there! We regret hearing about this case of unclaimed GrabFood order. 😔 Please do note that our delivery-partners are fully-reimbursed by Grab for unclaimed orders once reported. Customers with no-shows face account penalties, including suspension.

The company told De Lara that their “delivery-partners are fully-reimbursed for unclaimed orders once reported.”
“Customers with no-shows face account penalties, including suspension,” the delivery service added. JB
