Dating Safety: Philippines Dating Scams
Technology has brought scams, fraud and risk to every part of the world and especially to those trying online dating. Philippines based dating scams are rampant online with syndicates, married couples, and even entire families after your hard earned cash. Private Investigators in the Philippines openly offer Dating Scam investigations as a mainstream service, and that’s something you’d never find in the USA or Australia.
So what is a dating scam and how do you spot it?
The most common form of dating scam uses romance, love, a little fun and the potential for marriage to lure you in. In other words, everything you are looking for when using a dating website is seemingly provided to ensure your interest.
The way the romance scam commonly works is as follows:
Firstly they post a dating profile, quite often as a young and attractive Filipina. Alternatively they may just respond to or make contact with others that have posted personal ads or profiles.
A relationship is quickly struck up with them making you feel special and wanted. Pet names such as babe or honey are often used to make you feel as though they really do like you and that a connection is forming. Seductive or nude photos are also used at times. As the targets of these scams are quite often single older males the attention from a striking Filipina can be hard to resist.
One thing to keep in mind – Nobody falls in love after a few emails! Seriously!
Over time they will establish a trust with you. You’ll feel there’s a real connection and you feel as though you love this girl. She’s told you that she loves you and that you are her life. It’s all good right? Wrong! This is when they make a play for your cash. Now this part comes in may shapes and sizes:
I need cash to get to Manila to see a specialist.
I am broke and if you don’t send me money today I’ll have to walk the streets tonight.
I need money to get a birth certificate (the price given is a lot more than it really costs)
I want to buy the engagement ring here myself, please send me the money.
My family member needs to go to hospital and we can’t afford it.
I need money for medicine.
I need money to get my passport.
You name it; they’ll say it if they think it’ll make you send them cash.
Normally when they ask for money it is designed to play on your heart strings somehow and ensure you’ll feel bad if you say no.
Some scammers however will wait until you travel to the Philippines before asking for money. When this happens you can have an entire family after you for money and saying no isn’t always the safest thing, especially when you’re in their house. Don’t be surprised if you’re robbed of everything you have of value with you either.
If you say no to sending money, and you should, they will get grumpy and act as though your relationship is on the line. It’s time to walk away.
So how do you spot a dating scam?
This is a difficult one as it all depends on whom you are dealing with. A wife in a married couple or a daughter in a family syndicate may be able to use real photos, telephones and webcams, whilst a 60 year old woman acting alone will not. It takes different approaches to spot different scammers and even then you may still get foiled. Here are a few things to be wary of though:

No telephone number
You are 65 and she is 25
If she asks for money for ANY reason
She falls in love quickly
She seems overly attentive and strokes your ego straight away
Is the information on their profile vague?
Does the photo appear to be too good to be true?
What you need to keep in mind when considering sending money or anything else to someone you met online is this. You really have no idea who you are sending it to. Some people that run these scams are old ladies, families, men even. Chances are that whilst you think you are special, there are at least 10 or more other guys that are being treated the same way and they are probably already sending the cash to your beloved.
If you really believe that she is the one and that you’re not being scammed, considering hiring a private detective or running a background check to learn what you can. Just be sure to hire a professional firm to do the work else believe it or not you may be scammed with this also.
There are plenty of genuine beautiful Filipinas seeking relationships online and there are also plenty of scammers looking to take your money. Be sure to protect yourself from dating scams and stay safe.

I have been scammed by a woman from the Philippines. She claimed to be an attorney to get the money. She claimed that my girlfriend is going to jail if I don't send bail money and she asked also money for lawyer's fee. The scammer's name is Elaine Cruz-Morales. I made an internet site of her. The site is http://www.elainecruz-moralesascammer.fi/ there you can find more closer information and proof of the scam. My girlfriend who I met online is Kiah Casandra Cruz. She asked money from me too but I'm not sure if she is a scammer.

You are too gullible and too easy and too stupid!

Lawyers write grammatically well since they do briefs, petitions, motions etc. However, that Piglipinahas written you with lots of grammatical errors. Haven't you noticed the pretense?

You men should use your common sense not your bird brain when it comes to Piglipinas. Warnings and red flags are all over about their breed. Callousness must be practice at all times.

A problem you can find is that though the young filipina is good she may be pushed into asking for money by her family, it happened to me.
My fiancee was pushed by her aunt, coached but then she fell in love with me.When we were together in Cebu, three weeks together she broke down and cried, she did not know how to tell me, caught between her love for me and family obligations.
Happy to say we are together, does not have anything to do with her aunt from Cebu City,she has allowance and we plan to marry this year.
There are many good girls that have the same problem, family see's then as money box if have foreign bf but at the same time can be victim of others that are jealous of her for having a foreigner who will take them overseas to a better life, they may even try to cause problems with stories.
You just try to take care, you need to see them face to face but if from US do not have much holiday time,if lucky have week there from two weeks annual leave, here in Australia we have 4 weeks so spend maximum time together, girl can pretend for a week but a month with her chat mate is a long time, first take your time but you must see her.

Potential scammer JHOY BERCYAGEN
I was recently contacted by a very attractive Filipina working in Hong Kong as a nanny/maid she contacted me on Asian dating & very quickly gave me her mobile number. We started talking daily on WhatsApp messenger the conversation appeared very friendly & natural. Soon we then chatted on Skype video after the second call she told me that she loved me by text! Like an idiot I started sending her gifts such as Gucci perfume! After 1 month she kept telling me how unhappy she was with her Caucasian employer & their children. She was always unhappy & telling me that she was crying!! She could never tell me on cam that she loved me only by text as she was very shy!! She kept asking me how she could get a visa to come to England to be with me I said that I didn't know. During Christmas she told me that she had damaged her employers camera & that it would mean her having no salary for 1 month. We chatted on Skype that day where she kept crying saying she would have to ask her sister for the money!!
Not long after she was very sad again with her employer & that she wanted to cry, I just replied that I was sorry to hear this.
Later that day all contact by her stopped I called her mobile 3 or 4 times but she didn't answer!! I never spoke with her again!!!
I'm convinced she was a scammer she also removed her profile from Asian dating soon after we started chatting!
Her name is Jhoy Bercyagen we chatted for 3 months overall please beware!!!!!!

If you're hungry too interested on anything you'll bite the bait and you get scammed. Scammers are all over the world more so in the USA cause that's where the money at. I only transact with banks credit unions and with anyone I have bills to pay.

Not too fast. Takes more months to know their real intentions. Even after marriage they could still scam you. They are good actors.

Someone told me american women are worse scammers. They will scam you for 30years and then divorce you. Not sure if it's true. Atleast in Philippines their is poverty to justify scamming, in america it's a pure choice. Simple laziness and part of why their women are so fat.

My 40 yr old military son met a 22 year old attractive phillipino woman on an internet dating site in Nov 2012. He flew to the Phillipines in Nov and immed asked her to marry him. She has a large family she lives with in a small house. He gave her $2,800 for the wedding and came back home. In Jan 2013 he flew back and married her. He has been sending her more money since he has returned. Here is my concern: Her birth certificate said she was a male.She said it was an error.She said she was a virgin and they apparently had a "normal" honeymoon but I do not how sex change surgery feels to a mate.Now she says she is pregnant but wants to stay in Phllipines so her mother will be with her during birth. She is computer savvy and speaks excellent english so I know she can photo shop. My son has been sending money to set her father up with a store in his home because she said since she married she will no longer be working to contribute to her family. I see a huge scam here. I dont even know if she is actually a "she" except perhaps thru a surgical procedure. And it is money money money all the time. She is a beautiful female but so are transvestites. I cannot mention this to my son. He would be furious at me because he is in this and believes everything. I think pregnancy pics will be photoshopped to him and more money will be asked for due to the pregnancy thing and then when the child is supposedly born, it will be stillborn, Am I just a crazy suspicious mother or does anyone else see a big problem with this? I was thinking that maybe she was born with male and female organs and had surgery to be female---but then there would be no chance of pregnancy.

concerned mum, Im inclined to believe she is a she. Birth certs do have many mistakes. Some are even late registered. Making ammendments with NSO can be lengthy process and expensive. I think your son would probably know if shes fake.

What about her school records or pictures growing up?

Besides it's probably too late. They are legally married. And your son loves her regardless of he or she. Did she have a CENOMAR in her name for the wedding?

The rest of your post is spot on. He is being scammed. Some money is reasonable. Business are rarely 'reasonable'. In a few months the business will run out of capital. Then need more funds.

Your son needs to set ground rules and follow them. The house is reasonable especially if he will stay there. He should only send what he is comfortable with and willing to lose.

Poorer families are always problematic. But too late now.

Kathleen thats great news about your friend. Life throws up all kinds of challenges. Its great that she landed on her feet and is now pregnant to a man she actually loves. Sounds like the old man was just a means to an end.

Now that she's pregnant and inlove she can seek a divorce from the old man. But she needs to be careful not to have visa revoked. Usually relationship needs to last 2years to be considered genuine. And a failed relationship would work against her with the new bf.

In this instance its better to either wait the 2years or allege domestic violence.

Hi Christopher she don't love him. She has nowhere to go or live since she lost her job. She tells this guy she loves him but when she talks to us friends on Facebook she talks about him and they are mean things. Like his face is ugly and he's fat that his family are dirty. She said it was a blessing to get pregnant but she wanted it to be with someone she loves. Shesaid she prays her baby does not look like her boyfriend.
Hi Kathleen. She's probably just venting. It would be tough for her adjusting to a new life in the US and her husband was much older than her. Once she settles things will be fine. Pregnancy can change people, I'm sure she will make good of the situation.

Maybe you could name the old man that scammed her by sponsoring her but not providing for her? Do you know if he is a repeat offender? Some of these guys have multiple sponshorships over a few year period. Has it happened to him before?

I hope both of them bounce back from this.
