No, the guys were not only willing but they were very happy to send their money to the woman, in hopes of receiving love and romance in return!The names have been changed but since these are true stories, I want to personalize their stories and illustrate the Philippine dating scam.An American friend, Jerry, met a very beautiful lady, Marla, in Manila and she was originally from Pangasinan, Philippines.Yes, I met her personally and she was not only beautiful but she spoke perfect English and she was really so charming in all aspects.After the meal, Jerry asked Marla why she had lied to him and why she did not tell him about her children from the beginning, as he could have accepted the fact if she had been honest.Marla broke down crying and her Aunt told Jerry that they were planning to tell him before the wedding.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.
Jhanine blasted Tommy first for being in an exotic dance club and no, she had not told him that she worked there.
Tommy, from Florida, found the love of his life in Cebu City. Yes, many in the Philippines like adding the letter “h” in their names to be unique! She was also very beautiful, had excellent English skills and she seemed to be a 10 on a scale of 1-10. Tommy planned filing a fiance visa with US Immigration and marrying Jhanine in the USA.
A few nights before Tommy was to fly back to Florida and file the fiance visa paperwork, a few expat friends invited him to Papillon Bar for a bachelor's party of sorts.
Marla was 29 at the time, had never been married and she did not have children.
She also had a good job at a Philippine government agency. Jerry was a generous guy and had spent a good bit of money during the course of their relationship.
