Issues involving Bureau of Customs (BOC) concerning OFW balikbayan boxes seem to get hotter and more controversial, with name calling taking part.
A Facebook post dubbing Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) “walang utak” by a certain Roussel Tan, Tax Senior Associate of BOC Philippines, has angered netizens.
Journalist Even Demata has captured screenshots of Tan’s viral social media posts and posted it in his official Facebook page:
In a separate screenshot, Tan said that she works at the BOC and accused OFWs of sending undeclared items prompting the agency to be critical in checking balikbayan boxes.
All these have triggered a public outrage against Tan:
As of this posting, Tan’s Facebook account has been already deleted.
What’s your take on this, folks?
