Retiring to the Philippines as a single guy and looking for your partner in life can be exciting and it will be a life changing event, whether it turns out good or bad! Philippine dating scams are a fact and it's something that every foreigner should be aware of. There are many dating sites on the internet where a guy from just about any country in the world can find a pretty woman. This would be impossible because there are not any dating sites willing to spend their money to do a background check on their members before they approve them to post and communicate with others on their site. The Philippine Government is not as poor as many perceive but poverty and unemployment remains a major problem in the country. The situation is improving but this issue will not be resolved overnight.
Dating scams are an art form for some Philippine women. Every day there is a Filipina somewhere who is planning to scam a foreign man out of his money. They often brag about it to their friends. Well-designed scams quickly spread through Filipina social groups. Some girls believe that men who are foolish enough to fall for these scams are not good mates.
A Filipina will begin an online relationship with a man from America other nationalities may be involved—Chinese women may be doing this as well, but these specific scams involve Filipinas. She will chat with her potential male victim for a few days, then quickly tell him that she wants to come see him. She will then recommend an agency that can make it happen. She will also claim this agency was able to get her friend into the United States. Thank you for your correspondence with name of agency.
Scam Warning Signs. 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. Most Filipino dating scammers work on the principle of low value, high volume scamming.
