The COMEX 2022 was held at Suntec Singapore until 4 September, and they had a booth selling mystery, unclaimed parcels.
Each unclaimed parcel is priced at $6 with random tech items inside, sort of like a mystery pack with the possibility of the items being worth much more than that $6 price tag.
The Auction House, said that all of the parcels are unclaimed, and according to Facebook page Singapore Atrium Sale, some of the techs found inside the parcels include power banks, toys and headphones.
The Singapore Police Force confirmed on 13 September that a report was lodged against The Auction House for the sale of the mystery parcels, and at the time of writing, police investigations are ongoing.
Retailer didn’t consider the unclaimed parcels to be mystery boxes
The Auction House responded and said that they are aware that mystery boxes are illegal in Singapore, but they said that they didn’t consider the parcels to be mystery boxes as they showed the contents of the parcels on their Facebook live streams.
They added that they opened quite a few parcels, many of which contained items such as shoes and bags.
Mystery boxes are currently prohibited from being sold in Singapore, with the Gambling Regulatory Authority previously expressing their intention to regulate mystery boxes and implement safeguarding measures.
