A proud mother was surprised when the package containing an expensive toy for her son was empty when delivered at her home in Tigaon, Camarines Sur.
Using common sense, the mother, who prefers to be unnamed, opened the package immediately after handing out the payment to the delivery man.
Upon discovering the package being empty, he called the attention of the messenger who was about to leave.
Feeling apologetic, the delivery man took pictures of the empty package, saying he would report the matter to the cargo delivery firm, J & T Express.
Meanwhile, the mother sent a complaint to online shopping firm Lazada, but the firm has not responded yet.
She said her son, Boboy (not his real name), has been saving his “baon” to buy the toy online. The toy is worth Php 350.
