Ola Foods Scam: Delivery Boy Takes Back Food After Redditor Refuses To Pay Again For Already Paid Order; Netizens React

Online food delivery is a boon! However, seeing the number of scams around food deliveries recently has made us quite sceptical. A Redditor in Bengaluru recently unveiled a new payment scam by Ola Foods. Despite paying online for the food, a Redditor was asked by the food delivery boy to pay during delivery as the payment, apparently, did not get through. When refused, the delivery person took away the order and marked it as delivered on the app. The Redditor complained about this to Ola Foods customer service but hasn’t heard back anything from them yet.

According to Traditional-Fly-6663, they ordered food from Ola Foods and paid for it online. However, when the delivery boy arrived with the food, he asked the Redditor to pay again as the online transaction wasn’t credited. The delivery boy insisted on paying for the food on his PhonePe number, which made the Redditor suspicious.
