Foodpanda has clarified that a masked delivery rider who was accused of being an imposter pretending to deliver food for unknown reasons is indeed registered with the company.

Stompers LinD and Azlinda alerted Stomp to a photo of the man wearing a pink and grey foodpanda shirt and a pink bandana covering his face that has been circulating online.

The photo was sent with the same caption:

"Be aware that now these guys come and target ppl house (sic).

"Non ordered food (sic)

"These guys come and pretend to delivery food and ask to open the door."

A Foodpanda spokesman told The Straits Times that it confirmed a registered Foodpanda rider made an attempt to deliver food on Saturday to a Singapore resident who had not made an order.

"The rider was responding to an incorrect delivery address entered into an order by a Foodpanda customer," said the spokesman.

"We sincerely apologise to the recipient of this incorrect delivery for any inconvenience caused."
