Best to go to the nearest BOI. I find the smaller ones take only 15 to 30 mins to get visa extensions

It is no fool proof way to tell but make sure you get official government receipts from the travel agent for the fees paid.

I agree with Phoenix, it is best to go to the immigration office and you can find one in capital cities/towns in most provinces. --> immigration.gov.ph/index.php…
