People Are Selling Masks Issued by Government on Carousell for over $10 each

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is still ongoing, Singapore has been conducting reusable masks distribution for residents. The exercise requires the resident to provide any form of government-issued identification card in exchange for one reusable mask.

However, there has been cases of the purpose of the collection of these masks being misused. Since the first day of collection on 26 May, there has been a number of Carousell listings of users reselling these masks for $10-$20. As of now, there are no rules against reselling of masks.

Recently, there has also been a case of a 32-year-old man who took over 200 masks from the 24-hour vending machine available for masks redemption. He made use of his skills from his previous job as a manpower recruiter, and used others’ personal information, as a form of identification document has to be presented upon mask collection.

Those who are unable to redeem their masks reported the incident and he is arrested for illegally making use of others’ personal information.
