Interview with a Filipina scammer

<< < (3/4) > >>

JoeLP:
Ok, help me out.  Where do these losers live?  I'm guessing the cities or built up areas.  Having lived in Orion, Bataan and now where I do on Catarman, Northern Samar, I don't see them.  Hell, where I am now, I'm the youngest foreigner I've seen/know and I'm in my 40's.  Pretty much every foreigner I see here is chillin' and enjoying life in their homes with their filipina wives. 

This isn't me doubting they exist.  I'm guessing they'd be easy to find in places like Angeles City or Olongapo and most likely Cebu City and Manila.  But, having been all over this province, and into the neighboring ones, I don't see these sick degenerates who have not hygiene care. 

Heck, the only "bad" foreigner that I've known that lived in this area probably made more money than any foreigner here and decided to beat up his pretty pinay wife(she took actions and he's no longer here, thank god).  I'm not saying that a few foreigners didn't pass through here and buy a house only to realize it cost more to live here than they thought and they moved on.  I'm just saying that foreigners who don't take care of themselves, act nasty to everyone is not something I've found yet in the places I've lived.  Tina said that in her 4 decades plus living here she hasn't seen them either. 

So, where are they found?  Enough people have brought it up on the site that I trust they do exist.  So again, this isn't me doubting they are here.  Just, I have not run into them yet.  That's all, and I wonder where they are hiding/living.

Gray Wolf:
The majority of my time in the PH has been in and around Manila since that's where the family lives. But I've traveled north and south and visited a few of the bigger cities. Manila, Cebu City, Angeles City, Olongapo all have their seedy side and more than their fair share of scum that feed off the fallen or vulnerable. I've been approached a few times in Manila but rebuffed their attempts to engage with me

Hestecrefter:
Like JoeLP, I am a bit surprised by the comments about kano scumbags.  In the few years I lived in Quezon City I never encountered those types.  Nor have I in travels around the country on many visits over the past 25 years.  One of the larger places where I have spent many months is Tuguegarao in the north and I have not found rotten foreigners there.  In fact, the only experience I recall of a foreigner who was an embarrassment to himself was a loud, foul-mouthed 300-pound German riding a bicycle on Boracay in 1995. Not picking on Germans, I am sure the same can be found from every country.

It seems odd to me that lowlife foreigners could be "scamming and exploiting Filipinas and their families".  Again, like JoeLP, I don't doubt the word of the posters here who say that is what they have seen.  Just not what I would expect.  Filipinos supporting broke foreigners.

Clarkee and MotorSarge have referred to the "sexpat" types and I know they exist.  Guys who come to the Phils and meet up with girls, pretend to be interested in forming a long-term relationship, promise them the earth, but soon disappear after
what was never intended to be more than a sexcation. Those guys are scum.  But I don't see them as living off the girls or their families.  In fact, I would guess the opposite to be true.  I would think they spend some money on them for the brief time they are with them. They just don't tell the girls they are never coming back.  And if the girl is left pregnant, that's her problem.

Apart from the guy on Boracay, my only other experience in the Phils with foreigners who maybe should not be there is with the complainers.  Those who chose to live there or spend a lot of time there, but bitch about just about everything.  If they dislike it so much, I don't understand why they spend time there. 

JoeLP:
Hestecrefter has brought up sexpats. Those I have seen in my part of the woods.  Only a few.  The wife sees them more due to her work and where it takes her.  But, I get a kick out of some of them.  I think I wrote on here once before about one dude.  It was a very hot day. Talking in the mid to upper 90's.  This dude bikes in on a honda gold wing as if he was riding a harley.  Revving the engine after stopping it at an intersection or at his destination.  Long hair flowing in the wind.  He wasn't really that bad looking of a guy dressed in biker gear(way to much for the heat of day) and two little pinay behind him.  He was probably in his 40's.  Drove them to the Jolibee and they went in and he had the walk as if he owned the place down.  I was laughing at the site.  But, it worked for him.  The jolibee is in the market, that Tina manages.  She said he was around for about a week with what felt like a different set of girls on the bike each day.  That stuff makes me laugh. 

But yeah, I've seen them.  And that isn't living off the locals.  Not at all.  Are they scum?  Yeah.  But, who doesn't see that?  if a local girl can't see it, that's on her.  Most women here have been told to look out for those guys.  If they chose to take the chance, embracing the risk, that's 100% on them.
