A Nigerian recently reported the odeal he went through in the hands of the Egypt Air officials. It has been confirmed by close to 200 passengers that this is now the trend.

If you recall that the said Nigerian passport page was torn and the rest given back to him. Well, this is a new method devised by the Egypt airline officials and their airline counterparts to fraudulently defraud innocent passengers of their money and also an attempt to stop them from visiting such country again.

This is how they go about it...

On arrival at the counter desk of Egyptian airline or any other airline involved in this scandal, your passport is taken from you for confirmation of ticket. And as soon as you look away ( this only takes 2 seconds to do), a page in your passport is taken out by the official. The said page would then be scanned to the airline you have tranfer with ( the page contain your passport number).
And as soon as you arrive at the other airport, your passport gets flagged up and you're escorted out of the airport by an immigration officer and handed over to a policeman waiting by the corner.

You're then threatened with life in prison for forged passport. You're told to either cooperate by emptying your pocket and send back to your country or face prison. Most passengers opt for the former.

The money and valuables realised in these scandals are then shared by the Airline officials, the immigration and the police force. A lot of Africans, Asians and Philippinos have already fallen victims.

There is also a page on facebook warning travelers about this scandal.

Be warned!


Front page please! This is very important for Nigerians and others.

Thanks

Oh, they tear away the date page of the international passport without the passenger knowing?

And the passenger will still use same passport to travel without even knowing that the data page was torn?

Makes no sense, sorry.

A Nigerian passport blank page would have been a better word to use. If you google ''Nigerian passport page'', it wil give you the info page of the Nigerian passport.
