Man stole 200 masks from vending machine

How did this many steal so many masks from the machine? How did he obtain 200 people's personal details? This is scary to know..

He was a recruiter. He would have the copies of all those he found jobs for. Remember, these are not Singaporean, but employment pass holders. All are given masks under this program, all you need is an image file/xerox copy scanned into your phone (or physical copy) and it is scanned and approved by a special app from the People's Association. (I was one of the scanners in the first mask distribution) I still have the app on my phone but it has to be validated daily by QR scan to work. I've forbidden to help with this mask distribution due to my age. He could have easily downloaded the image files of all the Work Permits that they had applied successfully for their clients.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

So unethical! Why would he even steal the masks? Was he trying to sell them? This is so unfair to the people whom the masks were supposed to belong to.

The machine I used actually also had a keypad, so I was able to just punch in the NRIC of everyone in household and collect it on their behalf.
