Omg, this is so creepy! Imagine taking a ride home with a stranger in the wee hours in the morning and he brings you to a cemetery route!
According to a Facebook user, his girlfriend had booked a ride with GrabHitch at around 1 am last Saturday, March 31, in Singapore, she was heading to Choa Chu Kang from Serangoon.
In his post, he explained that the GrabHitch driver had used an old black-and-white photo of an elderly woman for his profile and deliberately drove through a cemetery in the dead of night.
“This psycho GrabHitch driver who is in his mid 20s used a creepy profile picture and took my girlfriend through a cemetery road. Upon boarding, he mentioned that he will be picking another rider, but in the end he did not pick anyone else.”
Despite the global positioning system (GPS) indicating that it would be faster to use the expressway, the GrabHitch driver chose a route through the cemetery instead and reassured the girl that his way was ‘faster’.
Thankfully, she sensed something was amiss and immediately called her boyfriend and her family to inform them of her location.
After the GrabHitch driver noticed that she was calling someone, he quickly made his way out of Mandai Road cemetery and headed towards the expressway instead.

They only realized that the driver was using a photo of an old lady in black and white for his profile picture when the user and his girlfriend spoke about her encounter.
They lodged a report with Grab about the driver’s weird behavior and he noted that even the customer experience officer was equally freaked out by the driver’s profile picture.
“Fortunately, my girlfriend called for help, so the driver was forced to ‘back down’. We are still unsure of his intentions and have chosen to publicize the matter to warn other users.”
A Grab Singapore spokesman confirmed that an investigation is ongoing.
Not only is it creepy, it’s dangerous as well, what if the girl didn’t call anyone and she was raped instead? Oh my, all the possibilities, you all better take care, and try not to go out alone so late in the night, especially girls!
What’s your take on this?
