To all of us who have bought any items from Shopee, we would have seen this sender often: Mr Hu.
Some of us even ask our other if he knows Mr Hu and why he always buys from him.
Before we get suspicious if our other half has secret dealings with Mr Hu, I googled and found out who this mysterious person was.
A tweet on 19 Nov 2020 mentioning this mysterious person received over 13.4k retweets and 19.5k likes.
Helpful netizens contributed and shed much light to who Mr Hu is.
The first theory is Mr Hu is actually Hu Jianhua, president of China Merchants Group.
China Merchant Group is a multi-national statr-owned corporation of People's Republic of China that offers freight forwarding, professional logistics, port transportation and other services. Information thanks to Wikipedia.
This resounds well with the contribution in Twitter that is actually 'agent from sorting center'.
I posted this finding on our Facebook page and friends of our page finally know hu (who) he is.
These are still unverified by Mr Hu himself. Perhaps, this is who the real Mr Hu who has been sending you parcels really is. Just perhaps.
