A 25-year-old woman has been arrested for her suspected involvement in a series of cheating cases after failing to pay for her food delivery.
The police said they received a report on February 24 from a food deliveryman. He had been purportedly cheated by a woman who failed to pay for her food delivery.
After the food delivery was made, the woman allegedly showed a forged PayNow transfer receipt as proof of payment to the victim, but there was no actual payment made.
Through follow-up investigations, officers from Bedok Police Division established the woman's identity and arrested her on Thursday (March 25).
