Video : Be Careful of Suspicious Items at the Airport!
Have you ever been asked to hold an item by a fellow passenger at the airport, or been asked to help him/her out with some luggage? Be very very careful about whom you decide to help in such situations, as you might not be aware of what you are unknowingly getting into. Many of these items are not what they seem to be. Drug traffickers and dealers are coming up with deceptive objects and technology to fool authorities at airports, in order to carry drugs from one place to another.
In this video, shared by Fahad M. Siddique, a resident of Dubai, we see how drugs are packaged in a deceptive way using a bottle that has a hidden compartment. Other passengers may be asked to help these people to carry their items or to hold their bottle or things of the sort, in order to pass through security checks. The point is that even if authorities find out that the bottle is indeed a fake, YOU will be the one going to jail, not the dealer who tried to smuggle it through you. This is an alarming reality, and one that we should all pay attention to. Here is the link to the video, as well as what Fahad had to say in his post :
“NO HELPING AT AIRPORT PLEASE! BE CAREFUL!
AT AIRPORT, NEVER HELP ANYBODY BY HOLDING EVEN FOR A SHORT TIME, HIS OR HER WATER BOTTLE OR Anything else.
This warning has come from an officer( a close friend) working at the airport.
If you happen to buy a water bottle at the airport, please check the bottle.
BEWARE of fake water bottles:
Be careful !!!! At the airport or close to any customs service, never accept or help somebody to hold his/her bottle of water or other objects , even for an elderly person or a pregnant woman, You could be arrested for cocaine or illegal drugs possession. In Singapore/Dubai, that means the Death Penalty !! Tell them to put the item on the floor or at any other place…
Watch this attached video/clipping by the US Customs, to understand. (Cocaine dealers are very smart )”
