Watch: How to secure your luggage from the ‘Laglag Bala’ scam or airport thieves? Read this post!

Lately, the ‘Laglag Bala’ scam was exposed by a very brave balikbayan named Rhed Austria de Guzman without thinking of her safety should the perpetrators will try to get back at her. In what way? That we don’t know yet.

This scam has been going on for years, according to the OFW’s who were victimized in the past. But many elected to keep silent since they don’t want any issues every time they enter or exit the NAIA Terminal during vacation time.

Not until the balikbayan mentioned above posted her traumatic experience at the hands of the NAIA scum bags on Facebook. And the rest they say is history after the post went viral, the TV networks were left with no choice but to broadcast the scam for the televiewers to see.

I am sure some people are already aware by now how the airport personnel carry out the ‘Laglag Bala’ scheme by planting a bullet in the passenger’s luggage so it is very important that as much as possible, you secure your luggage with TSA-approved locks.

But do you know that if you leave your luggage unattended, they can easily open your luggage? Especially if it is a zipper type of luggage and not secured just like the image below, they can still open it without leaving any trace.

Isn’t it scary that airport people can get away with almost anything? But we can do something about it by investing with the proper equipment.
