Thanks again for the info!!

 

Have you talked to Ned about this? I can only tell you what I feel in my heart. We just went through almost the same scenario with another member named Jollyjim. Please forgive me for even implying this but it could be that there is deception going on here. She may have gotten cold feet. Or maybe the mother got cold feet.

 

I hope that my feelings are wrong. If you need any help, no matter which way it turns out, I'm glad to oblige. If you have the exact location of the crime, I will be glad to check out the police precincts to validate the matter for you.

 

Regardless of the outcome, please don't take exception to my bringing up this possibility. We have just seen this type of thing many times and we get skeptical. Believe me in that even though this is Ned's neice, that is no guarantee.

 

My sympathies regardless,

Bob

singersp, I hate to say it, but I'm skeptical as well. Please be cautious about these things. The case Bob is referring to is listed here: Jackelyn

 

Whenever a Filipina says she was robbed, depending on the circumstances of course, I become suspicious. For example, taxi drivers are not in the habit of robbing passengers. In many cases, Filipinas would not be robbed if with at least one other person.

 

Either way, your questions have been answered, and quite well I may add.

 

I wish you the best.

Wait. Bob, Ned's neice? Ned? Cebu Ned?

Why not just find out what police station she went to and maybe one of the members can try and get her story confirmed..

 

When you use this forum long enough you hear enough bad stories so just trying to help you in the case of maybe she is scamming you. Of course i could be 100% wrong and i hope i am!!

I would like to think, and give her the benefit of the doubt, because of the fact that she is Ned's niece.

 

Of course, I have seen girls in a family, cousins, one would be an angel, the other a pure scammer.

Yes being Cebuned's niece is a definate shot in the arm regarding credibility.

 

But like you Paul, I have seen family members vary greatly in character.

 

The main reasons I feel negative about this are the timing and the fact that everything was stolen. Why would she be carrying the visa around with her? Why would several other things be stolen at the same time? Why wouldn't the mother have more knowledge about what safety measures to take in the city?

 

All that being said, I hope that we are all wrong and my offer to help still stands without reservation!

Either way, it's not the end of the world. Maybe help your GF a little bit in sorting things out. Long distance calls to the Philippines are no problem or just follow the procedure on the embassy web site.

 

Embassies are impossible to get ahold of when it comes to immigration matters but fax works just fine. They usually call back within one day if the matter requires it. BTW, it is not the consulate section to issue visas.

 

I am curious to know how it took 2 days for her to let you know about the incident and if you heard about it earlier what you have done so far. Doesn't sound as if you have done anything.

 

Due to the time difference even more time has gone by since.

 

Anyway, sorry to hear and I hope things will work out.

As others have said, contacting the Embassy is so very important and it should have been done immediately.

 

A Philippine passport with a visa and all the necessary stamps could have been sold for a lot of money to people who might use it for God knows what evil purpose once they have changed the picture. I hate to tell you this, but if someone else uses her stolen passport to enter the USA before it is reported and flagged, when she tries to enter the US on her new passport, it could be her who sits in jail or is returned to the Philippines until the government sorts out the mess.

 

I hope you get it all worked out.

She does not have a US passport. She will have a Philippine passport with a US Visa stamped in it. Also, a sealed envelope to be opened at her USA POE.

on Monday she was robbed of the bag she was carrying. In it was her approved K-1 Visa along with her passport, her engagement ring & about 8,000 pesos for traveling.

 

This makes all sorts of bells and whistles go off in my head.

 

Good luck.

First I'de like to say, Steve, I'm feel so bad for you and Jing. I know both of you have been waiting and working so hard together to have this speical moment in your lives to happen, only to have it taken away by some scum of the earth. Be strong and God will guide you through these tough test.

 

Second, to the group here, sorry I've been away for some time now, but this past 7 to 8 months has been hell for me, without getting into to many details, the main problem is I have been battleing a very deep depression and I'm having trouble dealing with it.

 

The other night when SingerSP called me and told me the very devastating news, I could only think at first that it was some kind of silly joke, but then when I realized he wasn't joking, I was floored, I didn't know what to say. I tired to keep calm and supportive, thats all I can do. When my wife came home from work and I told her the news, my wife went off in a rampage, I've never seen her so mad. She was screaming how dumb can that girl be to carry her stuff all together in her bag and with no male companions to see her off.

 

It took me some time, but I finaly got my wife to calm down and the phone calls began. Since that call from Singer, we have been doing nothing but calling family in Sagay and sharing instant messeges and text via the computer and phones.

 

I can now say this with confidence, Jing and her Mother where both robbed, and I have no doubts in my mind that this didn't really happen. I'll be honest by adding, after talking to Singer, it was one of many things that ran through my mind the fact that maybe Jing got cold feet or had a change of mind, but I was praying at that time that this wouldn't be the case. Jing herself is very upset and feeling very down about this happening, but since all this has happened, my sister in-law Mercy has gotten involved and is helping Jing to get her things back in order and trying to just carry on and dealing with the problem as best they can. This may sound crude, but hopefully she will have learned from this, and next time prepair herself better by having some of the men step up and escort her through the final stages of her departure, and stay away from Cebu City itself. I realize what Jing and her mom where trying to do by going to St.Nino Church before her leaving, they just wanted to show their strong faith in God and ask for his blessings, but once they left there, we all realize the Colon St. area is a hot bed for crime and there are plenty watching all to scam or rob at any given moment.

 

As for my Wife and I, we where excited and awaiting Jings arrival, and we already had our plans in place to make the trip to MN in April for Steve's and Jing's wedding......

 

All I can say now is, Steve, if in anyway I can help, please ask. Keep your chin up and get through this tough ordeal. We will have our day in the sun soon enough. This will only strengthen your bond with Jing, I truly believe that....

 

Sincerely,

Ned and Margie, and David

sorry for my error in calling it a US passport, I will correct it now, but all other things in my post hold true.
