“BUKAN saya tetapi suami yang bekerja sebagai penghantar makanan, ramai salah sangka dan membuat penilaian sendiri selepas melihat gambar berkenaan,” kata Nur Fatin Mohd Yusof, 24.

Nur Fatin yang juga ibu dua anak memberi reaksi itu ketika ditanya mengenai kesahihan gambar yang tular di media sosial sejak semalam.

Menerusi gambar berkenaan, Nur Fatin dilihat memakai topi keledar dengan menggalas beg sandang GrabFood sambil mengendong seorang kanak-kanak di hadapan sebuah restoran makanan segera.

Gambar berkenaan mengundang sebak warganet yang rata-ratanya mendoakan dan memuji kesungguhan Nur Fatin mencari rezeki tetapi tidak kurang juga yang meluahkan simpati dengan nasib wanita itu.

Menceritakan perkara sebenar, Nur Fatin mengakui terkejut selepas gambar berkenaan tular dan hanya tahu mengenainya selepas dimaklumkan oleh rakannya, Syahmi Hakimi, 24, menerusi kiriman WhatsApp semalam.

“Sejak semalam, ramai yang menghubungi dan menghantar kiriman WhatsApp kepada saya untuk mendapatkan kepastian mengenai perkara itu termasuk saudara di kampung kerana kasihankan saya selepas melihat gambar berkenaan.

“Malu juga kerana apa yang tular itu tidak betul dan membuatkan ramai keliru hingga menyangka saya bekerja penghantar makanan untuk menyara keluarga.

“Sedangkan saya hanya membantu suami menggalas beg sementara dia mengambil pesanan pelanggan di dalam restoran makanan segera di Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.

“Jadi, cerita yang tular itu tidak benar dan saya sendiri tidak sedar bila gambar berkenaan diambil,” katanya.

Menurut Nur Fatin, secara peribadi, dia berasa tidak senang dengan tindakan individu berkenaan kerana mengambil gambarnya secara senyap-senyap dan memuat naiknya di media sosial.

“Sepatutnya, individu berkenaan datang kepada saya untuk bertanyakan perkara sebenar dan bukannya dengan mengambil gambar tanpa izin.

“Disebabkan perkongsian gambar itu, ada yang mempersoalkan tindakan saya membawa anak bersama sedangkan suami yang menunggang motosikal dan kami hanya membonceng di belakang.

“Suami juga sebenarnya bekerja sendiri dan hanya menjadi penghantar makanan secara sambilan pada waktu lapang sejak enam bulan lalu,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Norazwan Azmi, 30, yang bekerja sebagai perunding unit amanah berkata, dia tidak berniat buruk sebaliknya mengambil dan berkongsi gambar Nur Fatin di media sosial bagi memberi inspirasi kepada mereka yang mengikutinya di platform berkenaan.

“Gambar itu diambil pada awal pagi Isnin lalu secara spontan ketika saya berada di hadapan restoran berkenaan dengan tujuan untuk menyuntik semangat rakan sekerja dan sesiapa saja yang melihat perkongsian berkenaan.

“Namun, saya tidak sangka pula gambar itu tular di media sosial dan membuatkan ramai salah tafsir mesej sebenar yang ingin cuba saya sampaikan.

“Apa pun, saya akui tindakan mengambil gambar dan memuat naik gambar tanpa izin itu adalah satu kesalahan dan berharap mereka (Nur Fatin dan suaminya, Mohamad Hafifie) memaafkan perbuatan saya,” katanya.

Susulan penularan dua keping gambar tentang seorang wanita mendukung anaknya, didakwa menghantar makanan kepada pelanggan melalui perkhidmatan GrabFood, suaminya Mohamad Hafifi Mohamad Yusoff, 25 tampil memberi penjelasan.

Beliau ketika dihubungi FMT berkata perkara itu tidak benar seperti yang disebarkan sejak tiga hari lalu.

Menurut Hafifi ketika itu dia ingin membuat penghantaran makanan terakhir kepada pelanggan di Kampung Kerinchi, Bangsar.

Namun semasa ingin mengambil makanan yang ditempah, beliau membawa anak dan isterinya yang turut menginginkan makanan di restoran makanan segera yang sama.

“Kebetulan anak saya nak aiskrim, isteri saya pun nak beli makanan di McDonalds, jadi saya membawa mereka sekali untuk mengambil tempahan yang dibuat.

“Kemudian saya menghantar mereka di rumah terlebih dulu kerana rumah saya dekat dengan rumah pelanggan yang membuat tempahan,” katanya.

Menjelaskan keadaan itu Hafifi berkata beliau terkejut dengan gambar yang disebarkan sejak tiga hari lalu dengan menyatakan ia adalah pengorbanan isteri yang menyara keluarga dengan terpaksa membawa anak kecil keluar pada waktu malam.

“Saya pun risau kalau gambar ini terus tersebar ia akan menjejaskan keadaan saya yang mungkin tidak lagi boleh membuat perkhidmatan Grabfood ini,” jelasnya lagi.

Yusoff yang bekerja sendiri kini membuat perkhidmatan GrabFood sejak enam bulan lalu bagi mencari pendapatan sampingan untuk menyara isteri dan dua orang anaknya.

Penularan gambar tersebut mendapat perhatian netizen di laman sosial Facebook dengan lebih 5,000 “likes”, 2,700 “share” dan 955 komen yang rata-rata menyatakan kesedihan serta menyifatkan ia pengorbanan seorang ibu bagi menyara anak yang didukungnya.

Grab, Gojek cracking down on such apps, which also put customer data at risk

Some private-hire drivers here are using modified apps of ride-hailing firms such as Grab and Gojek to cheat the system.

Bootleg versions of these apps allow drivers to bypass verification, fake their location, cancel jobs without being penalised and, in some cases, view private customer information.

The New Paper understands that some drivers have been caught and penalised with warnings and suspensions.

Checks by TNP found a thriving online community dedicated to hacking and modifying these apps.

Some people are also offering their services on online forums and messaging apps to drivers who lack the technical expertise to do it themselves.

One such advertisement touted such services at a monthly rate of $350 for the Grab Driver app and $200 for the Gojek app.

Last week, Facebook user Boon Tat Tan alleged that some Grab drivers were using hacked apps to cancel and decline rides without consequence, or collude to force a pricing surge for higher fares.

He told TNP that drivers like himself needed to work for more than 12 hours to earn $200 a day before factoring in other costs, but users of the modified apps could earn more while working fewer hours.

When contacted, Grab and Gojek said they were aware of such abuse, which they described as fraud.

A Grab spokesman said it takes fraud seriously and has dedicated data scientists focusing on anti-fraud efforts.

“We want to ensure fairness for all our driver-partners and will not hesitate to suspend bad actors who exhibit fraudulent behaviour on our platform,” the spokesman added.

A Gojek spokesman said it will take swift action such as suspending errant drivers and reporting them to the authorities.

Both firms did not reveal the number of drivers caught.

Cybersecurity firm Group-IB’s head of research and development Alexander Lazarenko warned that modified apps can compromise customer safety.

He said such apps not only unfairly benefit drivers by letting them cherry-pick passengers and jump the queue, but they could also lead to customers’ personal data being compromised, or malicious code being introduced to spy on them.

REVERSE ENGINEERED APPS

Though Grab and Gojek constantly update the apps to prevent abuse, there are ways to hack them again.

“It is relatively easy to reverse engineer an app now,” Mr Lazarenko said.

“Even if the source code is obfuscated, the app is not 100 per cent secure and resilient. Reverse engineering it is just a matter of time.”

He said the ride-hailing firms need to adopt solutions such as device fingerprinting and anti-fraud functionality to allow them to identify mobile devices with malicious apps.

Such functions would likely block access to all variations of the app except the most updated version.

The proliferation of bootleg apps has led Grab to offer its driver-partners up to US$1,000 (S$1,350) for information on fraud cases under its Fair Play Rewards Programme.

Mr James Ow Yong of Kalco Law warned that those who use or modify such apps could be breaking the law.

Modifying the apps to cancel rides without being detected or to spoof locations is an offence under the Computer Misuse Act that carries a fine of up to $10,000, jail for up to three years, or both, he said.

If the operator’s loss exceeds $10,000 within a year of the offence, the offender may face enhanced penalties of a fine of up to $50,000, jail for up to seven years, or both.

Those who illegally access protected data, such as phone numbers and payment details of customers, on the app can be fined up to $5,000, jailed for up to two years, or both.

If they accessed the information to commit an offence, they can be fined up to $50,000, jailed for up to 10 years, or both.

Mr Ow Yong said those who modified the app for others to break the law could be convicted of abetment and face similar penalties.

“While innocently appearing to ‘game’ the system, these actions can cause significant loss to service providers such as Grab and the public at large.

“It is in essence cheating and it is only a matter of time before the law catches up,” he added.

All people are the same – this was the message that ex-Grab driver Fadhli Sahar was hoping to spread with his Facebook post that has since been shared over 3,400 times.

People have been praising him for his kindness after he told the story of the time he picked up three Bangladeshis who had been rejected by three drivers for being “smelly”.

In Fadhli’s June 25 post, he said when he first started driving as a private-hire driver for Grab, people told him to reject bookings from Bangladeshis as they were said to have body odour that would linger in his car.

One afternoon, he accepted a booking for a RM40 ride. When he arrived at the pick-up point, he saw three Bangladeshi workers who appeared to be security guards. Despite the negative stereotypes, he decided to pick them up.

Throughout the ride, Fadhli tried to adjust his air-conditioner settings and rolled down the window several times, attempting to get rid of his passengers’ body odour.

One of the passengers noticed Fadhli’s discomfort. He wrote, “He knew that something was wrong when he saw me. Sometimes, I covered my nose with my shirt, frequently lowered down the window and changed the (air-conditioner) mode… I think he knew that I was not comfortable with them.”

The Bangladeshi asked Fadhli repeatedly if he was comfortable with them in his car and shared that three other drivers had cancelled on them before he picked them up.

Believing that it would be rude and offensive to comment on body odour, Fadhli reassured them that he was okay and kept a positive attitude throughout the ride.

When they reached their destination, his passengers handed RM100 to him and refused to take the change.

Fadhli was stunned and immediately tried to return the amount to them. His customers at the time would normally tip him about one to two ringgit. To receive RM50 as a tip was unheard of.

The men told Fadhli to accept the tip as they were thankful for the ride. They also shared that it was a daily occurrence for drivers to reject them.

Fadhli summed up his post by advocating respect for everyone, saying “Even they are immigrants but they are still human. They have feelings, emotions and thoughts. Something that we must respect on all people.

“Until now, I don’t understand why some drivers are choosy about their passengers based on appearance. If it is your job, just get it done. All people (sic) are the same.”

Fadhli’s post garnered positive reactions and praise from Facebook users. Some private-hire drivers took the opportunity to share their own experiences.

Contrary to negative stereotypes that some may have of foreign workers, comments said that foreign workers were the most generous with tips.

PETALING JAYA – E-hailing giant Grab will be making it mandatory for passengers to submit a selfie to use its services by July 12, in an effort to make its platform safer for both drivers and riders.

Selfie verification, part of its facial recognition technology, was instrumental in helping police investigate the murder of one of its riders in May.

In an announcement via its app, Grab informed users that all passengers would be required to submit a selfie by July 12.

It said the selfie is a mandatory one-time identity verification and will be used to verify a passenger’s identity for future rides.

“We have introduced passenger verification via selfie as part of our efforts to build a safer platform for you and our driver-partners.

“The selfie is for identity verification, safety and may be used to assist the authorities when required,” Grab said on its website.

To avoid fake identities, Grab may ask passengers to submit another selfie to verify their identity when needed.

Grab also assured passengers that their identity and personal information are secure and will not be shared with its drivers and merchants.

The selfie feature is part of Grab’s facial recognition technology that was first announced together with Transport Minister Anthony Loke in April.

According to Grab, this technology has already helped the authorities arrest two suspects in the recent robbery and murder of Grab driver Mohd Hanafiee Jaafar in Tuaran, Sabah.

Grab said during the investigation, it provided information to the police, including a photo of the suspect, and the necessary information from its passenger selfie verification feature built into its app.

However, the selfie verification cannot serve as an alternative to the Transport Ministry’s e-hailing regulations requiring passengers to submit a photo of their identity card or passport when registering for an account with any e-hailing platform.

The need to register not only drivers but also passengers is part of the Transport Ministry’s regulation that will be enforced in July.

According to the Land Public Transport Agency’s (APAD) E-hailing Service Guidelines, Section 5.2 states that both drivers and passengers must provide their full name, a copy of their identify card or passport, and their phone number.

APAD director-general Azlan Shah Parames Albakri said the regulator also encourages companies to follow in Grab’s footsteps in using technology as additional control requirements since IC photos may be old or outdated.

“The collection of IC information is for the security and safety of passengers and drivers. We have cases where drivers were murdered, cases where passengers were raped.

“We also have cases where drivers were raped. So we need such data to protect both parties,” he said.

On privacy concerns, Azlan Shah said companies have to comply with the Personal Data Protection Act.

He estimates that there are around 275,000 e-hailing users in Malaysia.

Other e-hailing companies said they have already been using selfies and photos of ICs for verification before the regulation was announced.

Women-only e-hailing app Carriage for Her said it has been using ICs in its verification process since it launched in September 2018 to avoid the likelihood of male impersonators.

Its chief executive officer Nick Smith said the company does not collect selfies as these are not sufficient to verify a person’s gender.

“Riders and drivers can upload their selfies in the app for both sides to identify each other during pickup, but all account registrations are verified by their IC or passport,” he added.

E-hailing company Mula said it has been collecting selfies and IC copies to verify female passengers using its women-only Mula Pink feature, but will soon make this verification process mandatory for all passengers.

KUCHING: Police are on the hunt for a man who caused injuries to a Grab driver with a hammer and an air gun in an incident along Matang highway.

Sarawak CID Chief Denis Leong said the 40-year-old victim suffered injuries to his head after he was hit with a hammer and a red mark on his chest caused by the air gun in the incident about 2.30pm today.

“The victim was sent to Sarawak General Hospital for treatment,” he said in a statement here today.

Mum Punishes Son For Grabbing Girl’s Butt

May 16, 2019 | Viral | No Comments

Parents ought to discipline their children in a manner proportionate to their actions, and they should do it out of love and care for them. But how do parents know when enough is enough?

An online controversy began a debate on the matter when a video of a mother showing how she punished her second-grader son in public for an indecent act he committed in school circulated recently.

According to Shanghai.ist, the mother got a call from her son’s teacher at his school in Guiyang city, the capital of Guizhou province, China, who notified her that her son had grabbed his female classmate’s butt in school. The teacher needed to bring this to the mother’s attention as this act could have led to some serious trouble with the law, if the boy had been an adult.

When the boy’s mother heard this, she decided she wanted her son to learn a harsh lesson. So, she stripped him of all his clothes, leaving only his underwear, and made him squat in public where there was quite a large crowd. Her intention was to make him feel what it’s like to be violated and embarrassed. 

Soon after, the mother called the parents of the girl and apologized for her son’s indecent actions. She also added that she would be stricter towards her son in the future.

This incident sparked different reactions from netizens online, with some saying that he deserved the punishment while others expressed that her actions were a bit too extreme.

According to Mr Hong, the trio had booked a six-seater Grab Premium ride from McDonald’s East Coast Park to Boon Keng MRT station for $53.

He told Shin Min: “Upon reaching their destination, they asked me how much the ride was while opening the car door. They then ran off without paying.”

Mr Hong immediately got down from his vehicle, locked its doors and gave chase.

He chased after them for around 1km, to a construction site in the Kallang area.

“One of the men ran till he was panting,” said Mr Hong.

“I called Grab while chasing after the men and was told that the company would reimburse the fare to me, so I stopped my pursuit.”

In an incident that happened Friday evening, 19 April, public in Seberang Perai, Penang, thrashed two Nepali men for allegedly molesting a female Grab driver en route to their drop point

According to Seberang Perai Tengah district police chief Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid, the 27-year-old Grab driver had picked up the two men, aged 23 and 29, at Jalan Stesen about 5.30pm, New Straits Times reported today, 20 April.

The duo had booked the ride to return to their rented home in Taman Juru.

“Initially, the victim had asked both men to sit at the rear passenger seat. However, midway, the 23-year-old man climbed to the front passenger seat. The driver tried to stop him but was unsuccessful,” ACP Nik Ros Azhan was quoted as saying.

While the female Grab driver stopped by the roadside along Jalan Betik and asked the man to return to the back seat, he didn’t

When the grab car arrived along Jalan Song Ban Kheng, the man suddenly grabbed and kissed her hand before pulling her body towards him.

He then proceeded to grope her breast, ACP Nik Ros Azhan said, adding that the woman warned that she would drive them to the police station.

“When he repeated the assault again, the victim threatened to drive them to the police station. He stopped,” ACP Nik Ros Azhan said.

Along the way, the 29-year-old man who was seated at the back passenger seat vomited. At which point, the 23-year-old turned aggressive and tried to pull the woman to hug and outrage her.

“Suddenly, the younger suspect turned aggressive and started hugging the victim.

“She then immediately pulled up to the side of Jalan Bukit Minyak and asked the public to help,” ACP Nik Ros Azhan was quoted as saying.

Members of the public then got hold of the two and thrashed them

Both the suspects suffered injuries to the face due to the beating and were brought to Bukit Mertajam hospital for treatment after a police MPV unit arrived at the scene.

“The two men have been remanded for further investigation and are being probed under Section 354 of the Penal Code for outraging modesty,” the ACP added.

“It’s a funny and very innovative way for a Grab driver to introduce himself.”

Along the post were these two images:

Yes, the Grab driver actually hands out a printed A4 paper to his passengers introducing himself. He describes how he may be a very quiet guy, but also, actually very hilarious.

He even lists several ride types that are available to the passengers, of which are “the silent ride”, “therapy ride”, and “friendly ride”. Give this man a cookie lah!

Netizens who saw the post expressed how genius this idea is and some wish they could have him as a Grab driver.

“He looks so innocent and humble.. I would love to be in his ride as i prefer silent ride,” one commentor wrote.
