Filipino scammers may also ask you to send money for plane tickets, visa fees, marriage annulment fees or other travel related expenses. In one variation a Filipino asks you to send money so that she can purchase a webcam for an online video chat with you.The victim sends the money to purchase a webcam and the lady vanishes with the money never to be seen again.They will send you the Money Orders or checks and ask you to deposit them into your bank account and then wire the money to them via Western Union.
They pretend to be the foreign specialists working in Nigeria or Ghana (usually originally from US and UK, but it may also be Canada, Australia or any other European country).
In this scam the scammer will say that he/she wants to visit you but doesn't have enough money to pay for his/her plane ticket and travel expenses.
They will then suggest that you send them the money so they can purchase a plane ticket.
Some scammers will show fake copies of plane tickets, visas or other documents to make the travel plans appear to be authentic.
After wiring the money the victim waits at the airport patiently with a bunch of flowers for his/her love of their life to arrive.
