  1. So if you're like me you sometimes have to send some funding overseas to friends or family. I've done it many ways, but in the recent past my service of choice, RemitHome, was consumed by transfast. The new outfit seemed not as good, but the rate was fine and they had no obvious issues so I let inertia rule and continued to use them. Until yesterday. Raise your hand if you know what a phishing scam looks like. I went to log in yesterday, and a page that said "we have sent you an email" opened, and I couldn't access the site. The email asked me to click a magic link and then the resul
  2. I try to surround myself with ethical people when I am in the Philippines. I would say that most people I deal with there, are honest. It’s just that sometimes they do things that fall into a gray area of what I call “non-sins”. Just like with the Undead- these are not really this nor that. Not alive and not dead. In other words, I still feel that what they did was unethical, while they don’t seem to think so. And there are no commandments which prohibit what they do. I am left with a strange aftertaste after each one of such manifestations of these “non-sins”. They have upheld al
  3. The info below is hearsay, but should not be dismissed, imo. This is from an expat living there. He just contacted me and said that the local police get in cohouts with street kids who bother expats and then accuse them of hitting them. The expats then get locked up in jail until they pay a P100K fine. A friend of mine who is there has,according to him, also been framed by a neighbor who said that he had hit a kid. He had to spend a week in jail and was asked for a 100K "fine". He had no money so he decided to fight it. There is no proof and no witnesses. Every time there is a court
  4. There is a short lame guy about 40 - facial features like that of a Guatemalan Indian, walking around Cebu, showing people an open wound on his heel. He says he needs tetanus shots but he has no money. If you take him to a pharmacy and buy a set of shots ( P965), he will then disappear with the medicine only to return to the pharmacy later and ask for a refund. This is how he makes his money. You've been warned.
  5. The ingenuity of scammers here never ceases to amaze me. I mean, you've got to be intelligent to come up with stuff like this. This is mostly in the Manila/Malate/Ermita area- a guy walks around at night with a foam lunch box and bumps into you from the side. Then, he staggers and drops the box with food getting spilled on the road. He then yells at you that because of you he has nothing to eat now and that you ruined his meal. He asks for 200-300 pesos so that he could buy food. After he gets his money, he repeats the same thing with another tourist.

    Fishy PLDT invoices

    Guys, this random foreigner wants to know your view on this subject: Im renting a house with internet, the owner shows me PLDT invoices every month. I did notice in last invoice that I'm also paying for a landline phone, but the phone at home is not working, no signal. I try to call to my supposed number (it's in the invoice I'm paying) and for my surprise it's ringing! So someone is having a landline for free. The owner of the house lived here before, so I guess she was using that landline number as her own, she did transfer to another subdivision, perhaps she did ask to change th
