There is a lot of ‘modus operandi’ victimizing Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) nowadays. Sad to say, despite the constant effort of the government to remind the public not to fall prey to these abusive people, there are still OFWs who lose their hard-earned money in a blink of an eye.

Florenz Water Spears posted a reminder to all OFWs going to Ninoy Aquino International Airport, particularly those people who wait for their connecting flight to Mindanao.

Florenz said that OFWs must be careful of the so-called ‘Budol-budol’ gang who are victimizing those Filipino workers especially those who are traveling back to their hometown in Mindanao.

 

According to Florenz, these people will try to lure OFWs in any way possible so they can get a chance to steal their luggage. They are victimizing travelers who will wait for their flight to Mindanao so they can have ample of time to win their trust.

Florenz reminded to never go with people who ask you to go shopping or go to a saloon because this will give them the chance to steal your belongings.

One modus involves getting the trust of the OFW by going with them to the saloon and by the time you get busy with your pampering, they will steal important belongings including your passport and money.

Additionally, there is also another modus wherein the OFW is lured to go shopping and forced to fit something inside the fitting room. By the time they go out, their things were all gone.
