Also, make it clear that you will never send any money to anyone you meet online.If the person is genuine they should be very happy that you will travel to meet them, if they are a scammer and sense that they will never receive any money you will probably find that they disappear as soon as they realize they will never receive any financial benefit from communicating with you.Only when all passengers are off the plane and the scammer doesn't show up do they realize that they've been scammed.In order to avoid these scams never send money for any travel related expense, instead make it clear that you will travel to meet them AFTER you have spent considerable time chatting to them for many months.
Remember when the money sending stops the scamming will too.
Most Filipino dating scammers work on the principle of low value, high volume scamming.
Typically this involves asking a victim to send a small amount of money to buy food, pay for daily living expenses, internet access, hiring a private room with a webcam or numerous other variations on the above.
This scam plays on the victim’s emotions and can be hard to resist.
It's important to remember that anytime anyone sends any money to any scammer, no matter how small, it encourages the scammer to harass other online daters for money.
In this scam the scammer asks you to send money for food, rent, internet access or other living expenses.
