Fact Check: Viral Post Showing Airport Staff Stealing Money From Passengers’ Luggage Is Scripted


A video claiming to show how airport staff steal money from passengers’ luggage is doing the rounds on social media. Many users have cautioned air travellers about this act by the airlines staff. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post with a caption: Airport se safar karne wale pessenger is video ko khas karke zaroor dekho… airport k andar ka  staff passenger ka rupya Paisa kis tarah se chori karte hain zara dekh Lo… is video ko apne sabhi group mein share karo… (English translation: Passengers traveling from airport must watch this video specially. See how the staff inside the airport steal the passenger money. Share this video in all your groups…)

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post and found it to be misleading.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team spotted a YouTube Video on a channel, PaulVuTV, dated November 1, 2023, with a title: ‘Greedy employee takes from passenger!’ which matches exactly with the viral clip.

Scanning the YouTube channel, our team found the creator making many such scripted videos with his team. The actors in the viral post can be seen playing different roles in other videos.

The creator’s official Instagram handle has also posted many scripted videos. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming security staff at the airport were caught stealing money from a passenger’s luggage, is misleading.
