MANILA International Airport Authority (MIAA) general manager Bryan Co has issued a warning to the public, against transacting with fake online accounts.
In so doing, he cited a recent post on Facebook, claiming that lost pieces of luggage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) are on sale.
“The airline operators have clear and established protocols in safekeeping and disposal of lost or left behind items. Selling these items online is certainly not one of them,” he said.
Co expressed dismay over the audacity of fraudsters whom he said prey on unsuspecting individuals wishing to grab discounts or special price offers of goods sold online.
“We appeal to everyone to be extremely careful and vigilant when browsing through the internet. Always exercise caution when engaging with online sellers. Do not be easy targets of scammers,” Co said.
According to public affais office chief Connie Bungag, official announcements and information dissemination of the MIAA are issued through its official Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/MIAAGovPH, X (formerly Twitter), as well as its Instagram and TikTok accounts @MIAAGovPH.
