DateInAsia Scams - How to Spot a Common DateInAsia Scam

DateInAsia is one of the biggest free Asian dating websites available online. It's very popular with Western men looking for Asian wives from Thailand, China, the Philippines or other Asian countries. Although it's nice that the site is free, free dating sites are dangerous due to the numerous scammers operating on them. Here's some information about three typical scams that you might encounter while using DateInAsia.

African Dating Site Scam

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 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 DateInAsia are very popular with African scammers, so be on your guard. Scammers love free dating sites because:

  • Most subscription sites charge members if they want to talk to other members, whereas free dating sites allow you to potentially scam people for free!
  • Free dating sites have fewer staff members to police and moderate the site.
  • Free dating sites cannot always afford the sophisticated IT systems needed to spot scammers.
  • Free dating sites are popular with less wealthy people and those with less experience at using the internet, and these are often much easier to scam.
  • Most free dating sites have so many members that controlling scammers is virtually impossible as they can sign up faster than the site can remove them.
  • Many dating sites are poor at spotting potential scammers, and in many cases it takes a scam to take place for a scammer to be identified.

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. Stay well away from any Asian women claiming to be working in a country outside of Asia (particularly developing countries, i.e. Africa). 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 Scam

Many dating scams are operated by Asian ladies themselves. These scammers roam the many Asian dating websites like DateInAsia 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. Many Filipino women are scammers as well - as many of them speak and write English they find it a particularly easy way to make a decent living out of it.

It's rarer for Chinese ladies to be into this type of scam, but as China opens up they are learning fast.

Although the scam ladies often only get a few dollars here and there, remember that $10 is a lot of money in Thailand, the Philippines or China. And many Asian 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 really add up then.

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 onto someone much more honest.

Green Card or Visa Scam

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 female is to marry a man! I suspect my Chinese ex-girlfriend may have been one of these scammers, but you know what - to this day I still don't know what she was up to.

These types of scam are 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.

This type of scammer takes time to spot, so always take your time with your relationship. The easiest way to avoid these types of scams is to live in Asia with your new Asian bride. However, that's not always possible. So be wary of any women who asks you a lot of information about your house or financial situation. 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.

Never buy an Asian lady property back in her own country - she's likely to disappear back home and have a great time living in the apartment 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 DateInAsia or any of the other Asian dating sites out there, then always be on the alert for scams.
