For those wondering what the ‘tanim-bala’ is all about, here’s a simple infographic to educate you and hopefully help you protect yourself on your next trip.
“Tanim-bala” (bullet planting) is the latest scam to victimize incoming and outgoing passengers inside the country’s airports. The scheme involves the planting of bullets inside a victim’s bag, which will then be seen via X-ray by an airport security screener.
The passenger then has to choose whether to pay P500 or end up being investigated.
According to a source, the tanim-bala scam has been going on for the past 20 years, victimizing many passengers. Even the installation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras at the four airport terminals has failed to stop the scheme.
