Hey. I was thinking about how I helped id a scammer for a friend. He was chatting to some scammer from South Africa and sending her money. It was nice to be able to put a stop to it so I thought I'd share the technique for anyone here to do some basic due dilligence. I downloaded 'her' photo to my computer, then uploaded it to Google images. It showed the same photo had been used for another profile in the US. The scammer had stolen it. It's a pretty common technique, so this should be the first thing everyone who is looking online should check. I agree with everyone who will say that dating filipinas online is usually bad value anyway, but if you are going to do it anyway it's wise to take precautions. Any other tips?
I have had a look and could not find a similar topic so this is where I stuck it If wrong, please move or merge. I was having a discussion with a business associate last night about how we both met our respective partners. He is an American who has lived in Thailand for over 12 years and has a long term Thai partner. Me a Canadian born Australian who has worked throughout Asia for over 25 years None of us met our partners via online dating and the similarities continue. I am not knocking on line dating, mind you as I have another friend just testing the waters in this regard. Me, I met "She who must be obeyed" on a business trip here. I was having some difficulty with a shop attendant, a language issue and this petite lass intervened and translated for me. This was much appreciated, and as she was cute, I offered to buy her a coffee. Much to my surprise, she accepted. A similar thing happened with my friend but in Thailand. The interesting thing in both cases was the girls were both from reasonably well to do families. Were both stunners ( well through these old eyes they were) and it was not until both sets of relationship had progressed to the live in stage that their standing commercialy and academically became known. "She who must be obeyed" now runs the family business and my friend in Thailands partner is an accountant in her families practice. I mention this because one is always hearing of so many scams involving pinays. In these two cases, it was entirely different. Sorry to bore you, I just think it would be interesting of knowing how other members have met their partner.
