VIDEO: Former OFW demonstrates how to plant bad stuff inside your locked luggage
Posted on

The first time I ever heard of people planting drugs and other illegal items in your luggage was from Jeroen, my husband, before we got married.
Jeroen first arrived in Manila in 1997 with a giant backpack. He told me he had to secure all openings and zippers of his backpack because he had heard of airport people planting drugs inside the pockets of the passengers’ bags. Incidents like these happen not only in the Philippines but in other countries as well.

My brother Dennis gave up on locking his luggage altogether when his Mac disappeared from his locked luggage.
“Why bother locking?” said Dennis. “Let me just make their lives easier so they can help themselves to my luggage,” he said.

In this viral video, a former OFW from General Santos shows us how easy it is to open up a locked luggage, plant knives inside, and lock it again. Watch.

Ginawa q po itong video na ito para po sa kaalaman ng mga nakakarami na ang inaakala nilang safe ay hindi pla.paki share nlng po.nakakatakot po na kahit cno ay pwede mabiktima.hahayaan mo pa bang isa ka o isa ang iyong kaibigan o kakilala???ang maging biktima. Paki kalat nlng salamat po

Gives you more reason to invest in Rimowa luggage with the locking zippers.
Luckily, I have never lost anything.

A lock may be a deterrent, but a lot of airport thieves are determined enough to simply destroy your luggage to get at the contents.



That’s why I’ve been convinced by the Delsey salespeople to buy their luggage. This has been their standard demo but then, the intention was to avoid theft. Now, it’s to avoid planting illegal stuff. Times have changed…
