If anyone is passing through the port, please let me know if this practice is continuing. I see there are posts on this topic from about 4 or 5 years back, but unaware, and as a dumb tourist laden with luggage, we arrived at the pier and were set upon by the porters, some of whom had no uniform and no ID, and I shooed them away initially. We make our way past screening, and the same guy, with no ID and wearing an NBA jersey and flip flops, is now directing us toward the OceanJet desk to the left. We had two large pieces of luggage. After they get our bags behind the desk, and our tickets in hand, we are presented with a laminated bit of paper with "TARIFF RATE FOR PORTERAGE FEE" of 110.88 pesos per piece of luggage. I protested this immediately, but the fee was eventually paid. I made my way back outside where I found the PPA July 28, 2015 memorandum posted with a porterage rate of 27 pesos for a luggage of up to 25 kilos transported up to 200 meters. So I found out I was taken for 4x the official porterage fee. Knowing the distance to the end of the pier was less than 200 meters, I went back in to complain. Eventually the porter offered me 100 pesos back. I asked to see his work ID, he said he had left it at home. Now the money is not the main thing, but after the work it took to get that much back, I took it. I also watched my bags being loaded carefully, so they did not end up in the bay. Someone up the chain is making a good living off this scam. I emailed the PPA when we got home, and this week got a response from Sarah R Mijares, who apologized and said an investigation was in progress, blaming the porter. The fraudulent fee is clearly a conspiracy between the porters and the OceanJet people, I am sure this doesn't go on without knowledge of and a cut going to the management.
