This is nothing new in the business. That's how most drugs het smuggled through airports... by way of baggage handlers and also Service Agents.
A few years ago some strange man approached me on my lunch brake at the airport in AUA
and asked me if I would be interested to check-in one piece of luggage containing an undisclosed amount of cocaine to AMS
(under someone elses name). He offered a significant amount of money to do so, but I refused.
I am too afraid of prison, and no amount of money is worth ruining your life for!
I know enough agents/baggage handlers who did it and openly told me so and I know of those who were caught, arrested and prosecuted. They will never (I think) work at the airport for any airline again.
Definitely not worth it!
