The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) in November also warned against fake online accounts selling lost luggage at Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

MIAA and airline operators have established protocols for safekeeping and disposing of lost or leftover items. However, selling these items online is not one of them.

The airport authorities expressed disappointment with fraudsters who prey on unsuspecting individuals seeking discounts or special price offers of goods sold online.

“We urge everyone to be extremely careful and vigilant when browsing the internet. Always exercise caution when engaging with online sellers. Do not be easy targets of scammers,” they stated.
