About Philippines Women Scammers and Why They Do It!

How Scammers Operate – A SCARS Insight

Philippines Scammers / Philippines (Filipino) Scammers

Scammers from the Philippines

After Ghana and Nigeria, the Philippines is one the largest sources for Dating or Romance Scams.  The worst part is that these are typically real people using their real names and stories, not using fake photos or profiles.

They simply want you to support them, and they will tell you anything to get your money, but it’s always based in part on the truth, so it makes it much harder to spot and much harder to report to law enforcement.

When considering dating someone online from the Philippines, before sending money, do a thorough background check – there are several good services that help with this.

A Note about Asian scammers.

Unlike Africans, Asian criminals will complain about the display of their photos. They will complain to Google, Social Media platforms, and even hosting companies. Their argument is that they were in a relationship that went bad and displaying their photos is hate or cyberstalking. Unfortunately, the tech companies typically agree with them. So it makes it nearly impossible to have an up to date catalog of their photos, identities, and contact information


These are not representative of all Philippines Scammers, because as stated before it is impossible to maintain a highly visible album of them.

But these are scammers that we have had reported to us. We hope this is useful.

Remember these photos were NOT STOLEN – THESE ARE THE REAL PEOPLE!

Why do they do it?

If you are involved in the online dating scene and considering trying to court a Filipina girlfriend then you should read this before you proceed.

With their beauty and sweet loving nature, it’s clear to see why so many Westerners (Europeans, Australians, Canadians etc) would pursue a Filipina.

But there is a HUGE dark side to Filipino dating sites. The Filipino dating sites are infested with gold diggers and scammers. While all dating sites have them, Filipino/foreigner dating sites have A LOT more than average.

Here are the top 8 reasons why Filipinas scam foreign guys:

Because they can!

Here are the Top Reasons Why Filipinas (Women from the Philippines) Scam Online

  1. Materialistic: It’s the little things that brighten a lady’s day: A new purse, new sandals, a good lunch. Once they have a taste of regularly getting nice things, it’s hard to stop. It’s easier to find a Western man online who will give them the money than it is to get cash from anywhere else. So sometimes they scam a guy online JUST for getting their hair and nails done, or a nice dress, or for some piece of jewelry.

  2.  Family/Parents/Relatives: Most of Filipino families don’t discourage daughters from getting money online (until they get caught, then it’s a scandal). In fact, they may even encourage them to get more from scamming. Much of the money that comes from scams goes to the family’s basic needs, such as food, electricity, and other bills that are supposed to be the responsibilities of the parents to take care of.

  3. Poverty: The first thing you may notice if you actually go to the Philippines is that it’s overcrowded and very poor. There are few jobs and too many people. The utilities and bills are much higher than the average Filipino can afford. Due to so much corruption within the government, it seems like poverty will be permanent. Poverty is one of the main reasons for the number of scammers in the Philippines.

  4. Children: What greater reason to scam than to get money for milk or food for their children? If your child had nothing to eat, do you think you would do whatever it takes to feed them? How can you tell who has legitimate problems and who is lying? You cannot. Especially not online.

  5. Pleasure: Some Filipinas find it a pleasure, a joy to be able to scam guys and get big amounts of money with very little effort.  They lie until it finally becomes a habit. A habit that they cannot stop unless there are no more pitiful guys that they can fool. For them, it becomes a boost to the ego to trick guys. It’s exciting to meet new people and scam them.

  6. Education: College girls need money for their school fees, tuition, and books. Since they hear a lot of stories of what other women are doing, they are inspired to do the same since it is easy. What else can be a better way to get money than to scam!?

  7. Filipino Boyfriends: Most Filipinas doing romance scams on dating sites HAVE a Philippines boyfriend or husband. They use the money from the scam to feed their boyfriends & family, go shopping, clubbing with friends, or outing. The sad thing is the guy online getting scammed because they think that they are the only one in her life, but in reality, there’s another man pimping in the background.

  8. Influence: Generally, many people in the Philippines do not find it offensive to scam guys online for money, which is sad because most Philipinos (in our experience) are honest hard working people.) When girls talk about it, instead of disappointment, they are amazed that Filipinas get so much money out of it and so they spread the word and inspire other women to do. it.

It’s unfortunate that because there are so many Filipina scammers, Filipinas have a growing reputation in the West as being all about money and scamming. This makes it that much harder for overseas Filipino workers to get visas to work abroad because they are questioned about their intentions of leaving the Philippines. It affects the GOOD Filipina fiance who falls in love with a Westerner because the family of the Westerner will question her legitimacy too.

Of course, it’s not ALL Filipinas that are scamming on dating sites, but it’s definitely many. It’s hard to identify who is real and who is fake. Some of the Filipinas you will talk to are more focused on money, some are just scammers, and very few are interested in an actual relationship that is not about money, but about knowing each other deeper.

At least half of the population of these women are already in a relationship with a Filipino boyfriend or another foreign guy. Still others have recently broken up with a Filipino boyfriend, but still, have an attachment to him. Also, many are not even women, but like Ghanaians are really men that pretend to be women.

DO NOT give money to someone on dating sites. If these people want money they should go to a charity site. Sometimes Filipino/foreign dating sites are more like a corner with beggars than a place to find love.

If you are serious about finding love or a wife, FILIPINAS (they say) make the BEST wives. They have many good qualities that may be what you want. But finding the right one for you takes a long time with luck, just like any other dating site.

          Where have you reported her? If you have evidence, report her to the NBI, Manila. You have to get a Notarized complaint affidavit in your country typed out and Apostilled. Then send it to the NBI through courier. OR hire Filipino lawyer and do the same. Send the Apostilled complaint affidavit to the lawyer in Philippines and they will file the case with the NBI. It costs money though.

    Hello. I met this girl on Instagram about two years ago. We lost touch but recently she came back on Instagram. We reconnected about three weeks ago. We have started dating long distance. But she has already asked me for money through Western Union since she doesn’t have a bank account. She also claimed that she was a school teacher in Philippines. Is it hard to open a bank account in the Philippines or is this a scam?

    • SCARS™ Editorial Team June 9, 2020 at 6:21 am - Reply

      This is a typical Philippines romance scam. Women use their real names and lives, they just don’t tell you they are married. Opening a bank account in the Philippines is just like in the U.S. or Europe – not hard.

      • Drew Nieder June 9, 2020 at 11:13 am - Reply

        Thank you for the reply. If you can answer one more question it would be great. We generally chat on video. Is that part of a scam too, considering they use real names and lives? Just wondering.

        • SCARS™ Editorial Team June 9, 2020 at 3:52 pm - Reply

          Yes, most often Filipinas are just being themselves. Everything is real, including their need for money. But the common lie is that they have boyfriends or are married. So it is romance for hire. BUT, it is also har to prove that it was a crime too because of the level of honestly – with the one omission – they never had any intent to go forward. The way to look at it is that they are online hookers.

          • Gou August 16, 2020 at 1:59 am

            I think the whole system in the Philippines is geared towards helping scammers. That is the reason scammer. Look at the privacy laws. They are not even ready to divulge chat history with the scammer claiming “privacy policies”. It sucks big time. Just as malaria and cholera thrive in filthy places, scammers thrive in the Philippines

    I am an Indian national who went to the Philippines in a 59 day tourist visa to explore possibilities of business. So initially I was checking different options to see if there is a good opportunity. In Laguna province, it didn’t work. So I went to Manila. On the 19th of May, 2019 while I was in starmall, Alabang, Manila NCR, I got in touch with a lady on “Tantan”, a dating app and who claimed to be separated and has a girl child.

    Since I am a single, never married guy, I asked her to come to Alabang and we booked a room at a good hotel. She came there and everything went well. We also had Milk shake and I gave her a slice of Pizza that I had bought. She also guided me on taking a bus and MRT/LRT and the areas where I can set up a spa business which was one of the original ideas. I had told her that I am a potential investor. The friendship developed and we met again at Malate, ate together and she took me to Baclaran, Las Pinas and other areas. We also spent some more nights and I used to pay her for being a guide.

    She showed me around and we were looking for a space/shop to start a business like a spa or a bar. She used to bring her female cousin sometimes and we 3 would go around Makati, Baclaran, etc. I used to pay both the ladies and for food, transport etc. I even paid for a non functional mobile phone which she claimed was in the service center and couldn’t get it repaired because she had no money. I also used to send money sometimes when she needed for medical expenses and for searching places for a room to stay and for a space.

    In due course, she zeroed in on a space near Las Pinas, near the airport and showed me in person. She claims to have negotiated with the landlady and told me that the price is good. I backed out due to some reason and I also needed to go back to India urgently. In a week’s time or within 10 days, she messaged me. She said in the message that her mobile phone has been stolen and she needs a new mobile. And that she would return the money of 4000 Pesos if I sent her through Palawan.

    I asked her to make a police report and she sent me that. (I dont know if that report is true or bogus). I sent the money though Palawan. The very next day she told me that she has bought a new phone and thanked me. And she told me that since I have some capital, I can do very good business of money lending and I can try it out. She promised that she would help me and she had lots of contacts and would be my collector. She convinced me that there wouldn’t be a problem although I felt that the interest rate of 30% that she was planning to charge was too high and unreasonable. So I went ahead and told her that as an experiment, I can give her cash of 20000 pesos but it is her responsibility to collect it and recover it.

    We met at Alabang Star mall and I withdrew cash from the BPI ATM on the 3rd floor next to coffee project. She showed me the agreement copy format and took my signature on some of them. I handed over the money and left. The very next day she called me and told me that the business is growing and there are 8 more people in the pipeline. And both her cousin and she can meet me at Starmall again and she could handover the agreement copies and collect more money from me.

    I agreed to it and we all met and I withdrew 17000 pesos and gave her. She gave me the agreement copies and we left. Again the following day she told me that there are some more people and I had agreed to lend to them too. I objected and said that I don’t remember to have said that. But she argued and threatened to quit the business after collection if I don’t keep up my so-called ‘promise’. I said that this is a misunderstanding and just to save her face, I would be willing to give another 17000 pesos for the business.

    So we met at Alabang and I withdrew the cash from a ATM outside the mall and we went to the room in hotel Sogo and I handed over the money. There was no physical relationship then. She left and 2 days later asked me a favour of 10000 pesos for her cousin who is in dire need and promised me that she would guarantee all the money would be returned with 30% interest on the 28th of June, 2019 and just the last time I would need to send. I sent 5000 pesos in all for her cousin through Palawan and then waited for the 28th.

    Around that day, I went to Manila from Los Banos and stayed in a hotel and tried to reach her. She was very inaccessible, was not responding to calls or messages and was giving excuses. I tried very hard to reach her, called her many times and she would always say that she is at work and cannot answer or pick calls.

    I had told her before I handed over the money that my visa was expiring on the 9th of July, 2019 and I would have very little time for such experiments. She had promised me that she wouldn’t put me in such trouble and she would guarantee me that things would be smooth.

    But throughout the first week of July, 2019 she kept giving excuses or dodged me. Finally, I had to tell a couple of my friends in Los Banos about what happened. They promised to help me to whatever extent they could. They took her details. And I left the country on the 8th of July, 2019.

    After that, she sent me some message promising to send me on the 25th of July, 2019. She also mentioned that she is sorry for the delay and so on. I wrote back stating that she has to pay the full sum of 59000 pesos (4000 for the mobile +( 20000 + 17000 + 13000 + 5000 for the lending business). I told her that I trust her words and I believe that she would pay.

    But when my friend in Los Banos, Laguna had contacted her she twisted the case and told her that she is my girlfriend and that we had a special relationship and nobody else should interfere. She also said to my friend in Los Banos, Laguna that 18000 pesos has been returned to me which was not true at all.

    The total of all payments made through Palawan and the agreement copies with clients comes to just 32000 pesos (so the proof of payment through palawan and the agreements is just 32k. The rest was given through cash withdrawal). She has never sent me any further agreement copies. And when I showed these copies to some of my friends in Los Banos, they told me that it is full of loopholes. It does not state the date of return, the full names and addresses of the clients and the witnesses.

    The only proper reference or proof I have is the facebook chat history where there is substantive proof of transactions and the whole game plan she got me caught in.

    So till today, I haven’t filed a formal complaint as I am in India and I have to be physically present in the Philippines to do so. So this lady along with her cousin who is her associate is an expert at this scam of gaining the trust of foreigners then defrauding them.

    Beware and be alert when you are in Manila NCR and if you happen to meet this lady who has many aliases you already know that she is a scammer. She and her cousin have perfected the art of honey trapping foreign men and scamming them.

    She has at least 4 different profiles on Facebook through which she operates her scam probably by giving different identities to different men. And if one gets into trouble she already has another.

    She operates in dating apps like “Tantan”, “Tinder” etc.

    Here are the links to her 5 different profiles with 5 different names:





    5. Both she and her cousin Inday are scammers. They are well organized and well planned. Guys be very very careful

    • Unfortunate that you did not report this properly where it would do some good.

        The circumstances were such that there was no time nor enough money nor did I have evidence streamlined so as to report to the police. I am taking legal opinion soon and will act upon it. Thanks.

    It can be legit if she is not asking for money and she is doing video. Many Filipinas go to the Middle East to escape their [overty. Not all of them are out scamming. Some do actually want an American husband to escape the poverty and you can have relationships with these Filipinas The best thing is to meet her in person and go with your gut

    I’ve seen a few of the people pictured on Meetme. They’re using the live feature to scam people out of money by dressing half naked and disappearing after they get enough of the fake currency to get real money and come back a month later under a different name.

    To whom it may concern,
    I haven’t been scammed by anyone in the Philippines as far as I know. I did meet a woman online a couple months ago, who actually texted me over Messenger. I do not usually text anyone myself unless I know them. She says she has been abandoned by her boyfriend of one yr almost five years ago. She has 2 children, a girl 7 and a boy 5 years old. As you know everyone in the Philippines is very poor and that is something that does not have to be faked. I didn’t talk to her very often but one day she video called me and we talked for about an hour. So since then, we have video chatted almost every day at least once and she tends to text me as much as I have time to talk. When I told her I had found another PT position she seemed very disappointed that she didn’t think we could be communicating as much as we had been. I have to tell you I am not one to text so much. Of course, she didn’t refuse my offer of a very few dollars to buy her and her kids some food items. She never insists on any money from me and I have not sent much but about thirty dollars over a two month period. I know this is not much but as has been mentioned in your article’s is hard for them to stop once they get a taste of it. I actually do believe her, that she is alone, and that she has managed to survive selling foods from a cart on weekends. I have met her sister as they get up early and go for walks for exercise in the am, as she will video chat with me as long as she can get a connection. So what would be your experienced warnings or just what to be careful of? I do like her a lot and wasn’t looking for any woman but who knows if she is for real you never know. I think the age difference bothers me a lot at times. She is nearing forty and I’m just turned 65 but the picture I have been told is much younger.

    If you happen to be contacted by a Filipino called Karen Gooyit in Christchurch New Zealand please exercise extreme caution. She is looking for someone to support her to get a Visa on the basis of partnership – and of course, to pay for all sorts of things such as car hire purchase, travel, etc etc. She is, I believe, on a New Zealand dating site called Find Someone. Just keep your wallet in your pocket and be very, very careful about her declarations of love etc.

        Can somebody help me find a qualified criminal attorney staying in Manila? Does the NBI offer its own attorneys?

        • SCARS Editorial Team December 17, 2019 at 8:27 am - Reply

          The NBI is a police agency. If a crime is reported and they choose to prosecute then no attorney for the victim is needed. However, the question is if they elect to prosecute. Most scam cases lack sufficient evidence in themselves for this. But there are other routes. The best way to find an attorney is through the Philippines Bar Association.

          • Gou December 17, 2019 at 11:02 am

            Hiring a lawyer through the Philippines Bar Association or through any other means can be quite expensive. And for the loss that I have undergone it is not worth it. Is there any other method? What can make the NBI really go ahead with investigation and prosecution?

          • SCARS Editorial Team December 17, 2019 at 5:27 pm

            Unfortunately, professionals are rarely free. We are sympathetic but we cannot recommend individual attorneys.
            Regarding the NBI – it is the same as any police agency and prosecutor – it comes down to the quality of the case based upon the fact presented and available. Present what you have and see where it goes. However, if it is a criminal case be sure to report it to both and the FBI’s because you never know when a Filipina may apply for a visa or cross the U.S. border.

          • Gou December 18, 2019 at 12:00 am

After two weeks of talking to her he started sending her money. They have only been talking for 2 months and he has already sent her almost 400 dollars and he going over there next month to see her. I just have a bad feeling on this one. She is always posting pictures for her in a bikini Facebook and instagram. I just don’t want to see him taken for everything he has.

    I was scammed by a person called maveronica Aspe (Maria Veronica Aspe) she was on DIA, Skype (multiple accounts), and facebook under the name Shane Aspe Valdez. After one week on DIA she was shaking her phone and say it did not work well and we would not be able to continue talk but she had no money to buy new phone. I was very interested in her and asked her how much the cell phone costs she picked the most expensive samsung cell phone. Like an idiot I got her the phone. But it continued with paying her rent, utilities, internet since she said we could not longer talk without internet, then loads to her phone so we could continue talking, and the list goes on and on. Over four thousand does of payments. She is very convincing, Beautiful but I found her not telling the truth on numerous occasions. Her stories never matched or she forgot about what she said in her previous stories. When she saw she no longer could get alot of money she dumped me with no remorse and guilt. Stone cold scammer.

    Moscow clubs capitalize on lonely women starved for affection.

    Women sitting alone together in a cafe would not give most observers pause, but in Russia, a group of women alone acts as a reminder of the country’s deficiency in marriageable men. Lonely Russian women are commonplace in Moscow and other major Russian cities where men are dramatically outnumbered by the opposite sex. Mothers and daughters alike bemoan the lack of options available to them romantically. Men are not only scarce, but a good one is next to impossible to find.

    Men in Russia are prone to alcoholism, unemployment, and abuse. Generations of women in Russia have witnessed the decline of the Russian man. Complaints about men’s rudderless existence and poor treatment of women have become a mainstay for gatherings of women, whether at home, at work, or in a social setting. Wherever women gather, the subject of men is not far behind. Some of these women have taken to dressing the part of the jilted lover awaiting rescue, donning dramatic gowns, complete with stiletto heels as they await their knight in shining armor. A knight that few Russian women continue to believe in or have any hope left will actually materialize.

    Most women regale past experiences with men with very few pleasant memories. Even women that have been fortunate enough to be involved in a romance, the love quickly sours and is often replaced by resentment, disillusionment, and unhappiness. Russian women wish to be wined and dined and made to feel special. However, even promising men disappoint these notions, causing women to grow hardened as their hope of love and happily-ever-after slowly fades.

    The first experience with men a Russian woman remembers is usually her father. Unfortunately, most of these fathers were of no better than the men available for dating at present. Russian women are often raised bearing witness to drunken fathers, heavy drinking, financial insecurities due to lack of motivation to work, and verbal and physical abuse against their mothers. These formative memories create the foundation for a lifelong distrust of men in general, and each subsequent undesirable male encountered is further evidence that the female opinion of Russian men is justified.

    To answer the demand for good, decent men, clubs have been emerging across Russia to provide women with the means the experiences they have long craved. One club, Marusia, has taken the concept a step further. Many clubs will have male-based entertainment for women to enjoy. Marusia offers services for women to be in close proximity, if not actual contact, with a desirable man. Women may pay between a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars for the privilege of cuddling with male employees for the experience of closeness and physical connection they cannot find elsewhere.

    Starved for affection and love, some patrons of Marusia will request men to spend time with in private rooms. 50% of Russian women are single, with few prospects of a lasting relationship on the horizon. Marusia and clubs like it help these women fill a void, even for a few hours before they resume their search for men that can step into the role of lover, partner, and provider.

    Many Russian women consider their future bleak, as the hopes of marriage and companionship become less likely. Some critics believe that these situations are, in some part, created by the women themselves, citing that Russian women are too obsessed with finances and fairy tales. It could be argued in their defenses, that as the lonely fates of these Russian women looms over their heads, cynicism increases and practicality prevail, and the romantic ideals of the past morph into merely desires to be cared for.

    Russian women have begun to turn to mail order bride sites to find a husband . Companies like A Foreign Affair have been capitalizing on the demand for marriage minded husbands. Every month they bring groups of men to Russian and the Ukraine. The women attend what A Foreign Affair calls a social, hundreds of young beautiful Russian women attend these events with the hope to get the chances to meet one of 25 or so men that have traveled from the USA or Europe. 23 Year old Olga from Odessa says, “I have given up looking for a man in the Ukraine, I have no problem finding a date, but finding a man I would want to be the father of my children is a completely different thing. I want a man my children can admire and respect. I want a man that will be by friend, my soul mate and my lover”

      If you are in the United States file two complaints. One with the FBI online. You should also contact ICE – Immigration and Customs Enforcement through their local offices to report immigration fraud. That is you believe this individual is obtaining a visa under fraudulent information for the purpose of entering the U.S. to commit a crime – fraud against multiple U.S. persons. ICE offices:

        Hi, i had encountered this love scam through fb messenger. This girl name samantha from philipines. Based on her fb profile she live in japan. After a few weeks of chatting she suddenly asking for help as she said she still waiting to get a job in japan. I had helped her a few times until now. We used to have a VC also but after 3 months finally i had noticed that whenever she posted her stories on FB it seems like she was in the philipines whereas she never posted any picture of her in Japan. So when i asked her bout this then she will reply me by saying “There’s a lot of philipines outlet in Japan” but what i noticed last 2days ago she again posted visiting the apple outlet and all the price tag in philipines currency(peso) and she said the same thing “she was in the apple philipines outlet store in japan since its more cheaper”, so we had a big fight since i said no country will use other countries currency in their outlet/mall. I gave her example Like this “when we go to London, all the currency will be in pound sterling not other currency” But till today she still pretending she was in Japan.. i even asked her to give me her live location but she always change the topic..

    I met this girl on a dating site she claims her name is Shirlen Balaman (Shing)

    From Misamis Oriental is the province of Cagayan de Oro.

    She was charming and loving but something always felt off and already on day one she asked me to send her money. This felt weird but I did send her some $30 and now she’s asking about all kind of things and she says she lost her wallet and now she’s involved with a Namibian scam and says her dad has the money and wants my help in court. That was is I cut her off and blocked here. Think she works in mascopy with her boyfriend or family.

    I know this young girl. When we first lerned to know each other on a dating site and we started to talk she said her cellphone was bad and she maybe can not speak anymore. So I sent money.Then she must have a lad, and a wifi device. And I sent money. Then her sister must have books and school unifirm. After that her mom got sick and need hospital bills. So I sent money. One time I asked for her adress and she just gave me the name of her city. Then I asked more and got name of the part of the city. I asked for exact adress but I did not get any answer. Still she calls me darling and even husband. And I rone day discovered she has several facebook accounts with different home towns. Also I found out she is on other dating sites. On Facebook she has hidden her friends, but those who sometimes comment her timeline are all men from different countries, many are around 40 -60 years old. She is 22..
    Is this a scammer? We have been writing more than a year.

    Yes I know this very well of all this with certain Filipina scammers because I too was scammed from a chat room I was in where many Filipina woman are on the chat site with webcam viewing and chat rooms and they wait and see who their next victim is and you can see them on cam in real time so you know they are real even though some chatters have been known to show a video on their cam with a program called Manycam or other programs .This website here and others like have hit the scamming epidemic on the nose in the Philippine’s and other countries like maybe Africa or Russia as I have read about. I feel I should not mention the chat site where this is happening in order to not bring to much attention to that site being its know already of the scamming there and not much is being done but its like a place where money is easily found for the scammers thru western union usage.I’m sure I can go on and on and tell the story of how and what happened to me with this fiilpina and most likely her so called boyfriend or husband but you might have heard this before, she is a single mom and does have a one child and is young in her early 20s.Theres not a lot I can do at this point with my situation but I would be glad to share more of my experience of this scam even thought this filipian doesn’t think she was scamming me but asking or begging for help cause of her situation but the excuses she would tell me were one on top of another so on and so forth . When I finally said I cant do no more she would stop talking to me for long periods of time and say she can’t be on to much anymore cause she need a load but she managed to be online anyway. Hope this helps anyone to watch out who you talk to.

    There’s a girl I’ve been acquainted with over the internet for the past few years. A girl from the Philippines named Jennifer. She’s 36 and working Saudi Arabia. This girl and I were dating online but it obviously did not work out. When I was still dating her, she and her family made a lot demands. Including money, gifts and traveling to the Philippines. I am disabled and only live on a pension right now, and traveling be difficult for me because of my health. When she talked to me, especially when we were still dating, her language was aggressive and even downright abusive. As were her family members. This girl has “dated” three American men, included my friend and two other foreigners from different countries. This is only what I know of. After I called it off, so to speak, she stalked and harassed me online along with my family, attempting to get me to give her a second chance for more than a year. She and her family seem pretty determined to get a man, especially an American, to travel to her country to meet her. I’m not sure if this makes her a scammer or not but she definitely isn’t stopping.

      It is not uncommon. Many view this as a business – their way of making a living, and they are dependent upon it. Regardless of your reality, they view foreigners as wealthy, and in comparison they (we) are. Did you ever send her money? Please fill out a report on her, because this leads to inevitable results: either being scammed for money, or a visa/residency scam, or if you arrive a kidnapping. By reporting her, you may help someone else avoid becoming a victim.

        I did send money to this young Filipina woman Jennifer Globa, one time. It was only $35 dollars (1575 pesos) for an employment agency fee. Which she really did use to get an OFW job in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

        I also spent several hundred dollars on gifts, package shipping and international long distance calls, electronics for communication and other stuff. My family assisted her too.

        She also conned money out of another man, one of my Facebook friends.

        My salary is very low too. I just have a disability pension and even a little bit of money is a lot for me. I would report her but where can I file charges or at least a complaint?

          You can file an informational complaint with your local police department too. That way you get the Casualty deduction from your taxes.

    There’s a girl I’ve been acquainted with over the internet for the past few years. A girl from the Philippines named Jennifer. She is 36. This girl and I were dating online but it obviously did not work out. When I was still dating her she and her family made a lot of demands on me. Including money, gifts and traveling to the Philippines. I’m disabled and only live on a pension right now, and traveling would be difficult. When she talked to me, especially when we were still dating, her language was aggressive and even downright abusive. This girl has dated three American men online, including one of my friends since I’ve known her. And two other foreigners from different countries that I know of. After I called it off, so to speak, she harassed me and my family for over a year on the internet to give her a second change. She and her family are pretty determined to get someone to travel there to meet her. I’m not sure if this makes her a scammer not but I’m kind of wondering.

        There is a fine line between a gift and a scam. If it was one time, you should probable consider it a gift and give yourself a pat on the back for it. You helped someone in need. However, if she keeps asking for more, then it is time to be concerned.

          Yes, the first time she made a request for money, it didn’t bother me. But after that came an incessant, never ending string of demands from this girl Jennifer Globa and three other members of her family in the Philippines. The demands continued to get more and more frequent and high pressure. And after I started refusing to be generous with this girl and her family, they stoped making demands and then went straight to making threats. Their attitude completely turned around. My ex girlfriend and her family were so warm and welcoming at first, and then, they suddenly became hostile, aloof and rude to me. I started receving threats This girl wanted money, clothes, electronics, chocolate and various other gifts. You name it, she wanted it. But above everything else, she wanted money. Her mom, older brother and younger brother also wanted money or expensive electronics from me.Jennifer Globa and her family has more accidents, sudden emergencies, illnesses and bad luck than anyone I’ve ever met. This woman’s family needed A LOT of money. And that girl, Jennifer Globa, is the worst one of them all. Even worse than her thieving family, if that’s even possible. She must have requested me for money more than two hundred times. This girl has gone through five online boyfriends since 2012. I say five but there’s probably more I haven’t heard of yet. Boyfriends from all over the world like Egypt, Peru and the U.S. But she seems to like American men. That’s her preference. She is working on her third American. First it was me, her first American boyfriend. She then went on to con one of my friends. Another American. Now she is working on her next American, some poor sap that is oblivious of what is about to happen to him.

    I have just experienced a different type of scam, where a beautiful girl staying at Premier Inn in Warwick, uk advertises for a sexy relationship with a man, then tries to persuade (indeed pleads with a sense of urgency and desperation) her target man (me) to pay $250 to her manager in the Philipines by the name of Marvin Dela Cruz at Metro Manila, Quezo City for a Gate Pass which will release her to spend a week, free of any further charges, with her target (me), but as soon as he pays up via Western Union, he is told he has to pay another $600 for her salary and the pass wont be released until he does so.. Protesting that this is a breach of contract and blatant scamming, gets the response ‘ be careful, you dont know who you are messing with’. The scamming company email is, the agent for this company is Gracia Fernandez, and the girl in question Sophie Julz Spencer, email Be warned!

      First off, it is probably a pure scam. It is a variation of the emergency scam. Sometimes a scammer will say they lost their money and have to pay a hotel bill or they cannot leave.

      However, in this context, taking this at face value, it is slavery. You should contact the U.K. police and report it that way.

      Thank you for the heads up. This was unique. Since this was a public comment, we too the liberty of reposting it on our Facebook page (without your identity of course)

      On the surface, it appears to be a typical Philippines scam. At best you are buying into a fairly poor persona and everything that comes with that. Look elsewhere would be our advice.

    i know a family in butuan i visited definitely are scammers but real people. i went twice it was about getting as much for the family. they try to get support from you asap that you are boyfriend girlfriend. they pretend to care or that their intentions are not of using you. they are sociopathic family and people should be warned. they claim they love you and you are falsy accusing them. but they are prepared to exploit without any conscience. i can give you full info. one is ladyboy other is her sister both from butuan. family is all involved. if you visit expect 25-30 of them looking you to host, give and be there atm. this is not what they claim …good family values,, they are dangerous,,, there use there adult children to get money for them…the adult children just want material things… free vacations… support…martinez family
