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.
Only when all passengers are off the plane and the scammer doesn't show up do they realize that they've been scammed.
In order to avoid these scams never send money for any travel related expense, instead make it clear that you will travel to meet them AFTER you have spent considerable time chatting to them for many months.
Also, make it clear that you will never send any money to anyone you meet online.
If the person is genuine they should be very happy that you will travel to meet them, if they are a scammer and sense that they will never receive any money you will probably find that they disappear as soon as they realize they will never receive any financial benefit from communicating with you.
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.
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.
Typical scenarios include traffic accidents, brain hemorrhages, heart attacks, kidney operations etc.
