FilipinaHeart Scams - How to Spot a FilipinaHeart Scammer

Thanks for dropping by my website!Hi there! I've tried many Asian dating sites, but I've met more ladies through China Love Cupid than anywhere else. Join today and see what you're missing!

FilipinaHeart is one of the most popular Filipina dating sites. It's particularly popular with Western men looking for Asian wives from the Philippines. Although the site is generally well managed, all online dating sites can be dangerous places due to the numerous scammers operating on them. Here's some information about three typical scams that you might encounter while using FilipinaHeart.

African Dating Site Scams

Although Asian ladies and Russian ladies have got a bad reputation for being online dating scammers, this is often unfair. Many of the dating scams actually operate out of West African countries, so the ladies doing the scamming are:

  • Not Asian or Russian.
  • In many cases they aren't even female.
  • The profiles of the ladies are fake, relying on false information and convincing looking photos stolen from Facebook or other sites.

The African internet scam business is huge. In some towns and villages in Nigeria and Ghana it is the main source of income for the local population.

Sites like FilipinaHeart are very popular with African scammers, so be on your guard. Scammers love the Cupid Media sites because:

  • Post a photo of a beautiful lady on FilipinaHeart and she'll be inundated with interest from men.
  • You can sign up for a free membership of FilipinaHeart, and unlike many other Asian dating sites you can contact the paid members even if you're a free member.
  • Sites like FilipinaHeart have so many members that controlling scammers is virtually impossible as they can sign up faster than the site can remove them.
  • In many cases it takes a scam to take place for a scammer to be identified and removed from a website.

Thankfully it's possible to avoid the African scammers with a bit of careful planning. Before getting too involved with a woman, make sure you verify which country she's living in. Obviously one option is to stay away from any Asian women claiming to be working in a country outside of Asia (particularly in developing African countries). However, bear in mind that up to 10% of Filipinos do actually work overseas. It's usually far better to keep to those ladies who are working in Western countries. Stick to a woman working in your own country and the chance of getting justice if she is a scammer are greatly increased.

As to avoiding these scammers, before getting too involved, you must see your lady on webcam in order to verify that she actually exists. Ignore this advice at your peril - many victims of African dating site scammers were scammed by fake profiles of men and women who didn't actually exist. In the very worst cases, the victims lost most of their life savings to the scammers, so take this as a warning.

Small Time Dating Site Scams

Many dating scams are operated by Filipino ladies themselves. These scammers roam the many Asian dating websites like FilipinaHeart and Cherry Blossoms in order to look for victims. Typically they chat to men in order to get them to send them gifts and small amounts of money.

These scams are commonly carried out by either Thai or Filipino women. Thai women who work in Thailand's vast adult entertainment industry are expert at getting men to part with their cash. The Philippines also has a lively entertainment industry, and more and more Filipino women are getting good at parting men from their cash. Filipino women have a huge advantage when it comes to scamming Westerners - many of them speak and write English. This allows them to sign up to pretty much any Asian dating site, even if the site is only available in English.

Although the scam ladies working FilipinaHeart and other dating sites often only get a few dollars here and there, remember that $5 is a lot of money in the Philippines. And many Filipina women are ruthlessly efficient at what they do - it's not unusual for a woman to be chatting to dozens of men - all those $10 gifts will then really start to add up.

Men usually work out (eventually!) that these ladies are not suitable wives, so they move on and look for another lady. Actually, that's what should happen! In practice, we men get attached to our ladies we chat to, so it can be hard to move on, even when we have a pretty good idea we're getting scammed.

You'll have to use your own judgement, but speaking from experience I do regret sending my Asian girlfriend money (even though I only sent her modest sums). By all means send her a small gift for birthdays, Valentine's or other occasions, but if you start sending cash on a regular basis, you're probably going to regret it later.

Green Card or Visa Scams

In terms of emotional turmoil, the green card or visa scam is the most dangerous type of scam. Marry one of these ladies and your life will be torn apart. It's also much harder to spot than money based scams. Visa scams are operated by ladies who want to leave their country and move to a Western country. One of the best ways of doing this if you're an attractive sexy Filipina is to marry a man!

These types of scam are normally only carried out by women from developing countries, i.e. China, Thailand and the Philippines. Once in your country, your new wife may disappear, or move in with someone she's previously met (her Asian boyfriend perhaps), or get up to any number of other schemes. Thankfully Filipino ladies who are Catholic usually respect marriage, so once you're married they're less likely to pull one over on you compared to Russian or Chinese ladies.

This type of scammer takes time to spot, so always take your time with a relationship with anyone you meet on FilipinaHeart. The easiest way to avoid these types of scams is to move to the Philippines with your new Filipino bride. Or failing that marry an Asian girl from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan or Hong Kong. However, that's not always possible. So be wary of any Filipinas who ask you a lot of information about your house or financial situation. Also be wary of women looking to marry a man of any age. It's often a good idea to get a prenup agreement if you're worried about financial loss. Also, many countries allow you to get your Asian lady over to your country on a fiance visa, which is recommended as a way of living with your Asian lady and really getting to know her before you commit to marriage.

Needless to say, never buy a Filipino lady a house in the Philippines - she's likely to disappear back home and have a great time living in the property you've bought for her!

Finally it's often better to marry your Asian wife in Asia, then you won't be as legally liable in your own country should things go wrong. Obviously laws differ in different countries, so it's always worthwhile chatting with a friendly lawyer in order to see if there's anything you can do to protect yourself from future problems with your Asian wife.

So if you're thinking of registering for FilipinaHeart or any of the other Filipino dating sites out there, then always be on the alert for scams.
