water bottles, donuts, sauce pots; Hundreds of unsolicited orders delivered by Uber Eats mystify neighborhoods in the Vancouver suburb of New Westminster.
For weeks, delivery people from the app were constantly being called to the Victoria Hill neighborhood, fulfilling hundreds of orders that residents never made, but paid for.
“Dozens of deliveries were made in the neighborhood on Thursday alone. Everything was piled up at the front doors and in front of the condo buildings,” Jennifer Hughes told Global News, referring to the “crazy barrage of deliveries.”
“There’s a line of delivery people down the street in front of our houses,” added Geoff McLennan, also at Global’s microphone.
According to him, the delivery men are amused by the situation, which they do not understand more than the citizens, and confirmed that in recent weeks, the number of deliveries in the district is in the thousands.
Uber Eats Global said it is “concerned” about the phenomenon and has taken steps to block several accounts associated with unsolicited orders.
