Tips on dating filipino men

Shortly later they will tell you they need additional money for a passport, visa fees, transportation to the airport and miscellaneous expenses.

In some cases they will also tell the victim that the visa requirements state that they need to have a certain amount of money in their bank account so they can proof to the immigration official that they have sufficient funds for their visa.

In this scam the scammer asks you to send money for food, rent, internet access or other living expenses.

Typically this will be followed by a request for another small amount of money shortly after the victim sends their initial amount.

In this scam the scammer will say that he/she wants to visit you but doesn't have enough money to pay for his/her plane ticket and travel expenses.

They will then suggest that you send them the money so they can purchase a plane ticket.

Filipino scammers may also ask you to send money for plane tickets, visa fees, marriage annulment fees or other travel related expenses. In one variation a Filipino asks you to send money so that she can purchase a webcam for an online video chat with you.

The victim sends the money to purchase a webcam and the lady vanishes with the money never to be seen again.

Remember the golden rule - NEVER SEND MONEY TO ANYONE YOU MEET ONLINE.

Although the majority of Filipino singles are genuine and serious about finding a partner; unfortunately a few of them turn out to be scammers and malign Filipinos on online dating sites.

We strongly recommend never sending any money to anyone that you meet online, don't even send money to buy a postage stamp…not a cent…zilch, nada.

Remember when the money sending stops the scamming will too.

In this scam the scammer will contact the victim and explain that either they or some close family member has had some tragic accident or medical emergency and will die or suffer grave consequences unless you send them enough money to pay for the medical fees.
