Dating scams in Philippines are about separating the foreign man from his money. Sometimes this means asking for money. Other times it is just strong hints with a few tears. The elaborate schemes set you up. They make you the one to initiate a donation of money or perhaps a laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Dating sites are the job offices of scammers
When a Filipina date chats with you online she may have different motives than you expect. She may be seriously looking for a relationship. She may be looking for a hook-up. Perhaps she is just bored and wants to chat with a foreign man.
The Filipina girls you need to be wary of are the ones ‘working’ the dating sites. She will be on multiple sites with multiple names. Pictures may be of her, or they may be pics of people she knows, or just stolen off the Internet. Use Google Image Search for every picture she shares with you. This will tell you what other sites that same picture is being used on.
It is easy to refuse to give money to the girls who ask for it. They will have many reasons such as education, sickness or family emergency. Sometimes your Filipina date just need smoney to go to the Internet café and chat with you. That last reason may be legitimate so you will need to decide if any amount of money is warranted for her time spent with you.
So what harm is it if you send a little money and get entertained for a while. If you realize that you are actually paying for her time then you are not being scammed. The fraud happens when you believe she will be at the airport to meet you and start a relationship with you. When she does not show up at the airport you leave yourself open to heartbreak. Scammers are an emotional and financial drain on their foreign online dates.
Is your partner a scammer?
Many of these scammers do not live alone and pay all their own bills. You may be dating a scammer who already has a foreign partner. He may be at home waiting for her to come back from her time ‘with the girls’. You may even end up being the foreign partner who is out with friends at the bar while your scammer girlfriend is on the dating sites with her victims. It is very hard to know unless you spent all your time with your Filipina partner.
What should you watch for?
Watch her actions rather than her words and her tears. If you have friends or relatives in Philippines, ask them what they think of your beautiful Filipina date. Listen to their opinions. Watch for any clues that it is all about the money. A girl who is used to a simple life would not ask you for money when you are just dating. Avoid the online dating scams in Philippines. Don’t give money to your online date!
