TEMPO.CODepok - Spokesperson for the Covid-19 Task Force in Depok City, West Java, Dadang Wihana, reminded the public to be aware of the fraud regarding online sales of oxygen tanks.

"The increasing demand for oxygen during the pandemic is being misused by irresponsible people to make a profit," said Dadang in Depok, Wednesday, July 21, 2021.

The victim has sent some money and the scammer listed the pick-up location at the Sukmajaya Health Center (Puskesmas). The Sukmajaya Public Health Center reported that so far, there have been two victims who had come looking to take oxygen tanks they had paid through an online transaction.

"Puskesmas do not sell oxygen cylinders," said Dadang. This incident has been reported to the police. "The public must be alert and careful of fraud regarding sales of oxygen tanks," he added.
