I've written an article on avoiding scammers by doing your own "background checks." I think you can weed out at least 95% of the scammers by just following the advice on this post.
Much of it is just common sense, but there are one or two steps you may not be aware of (like using Tineye, etc).

Just be cautious and (as many others have said) never give money to someone you have not met in person.

My wife is a Filipina and she is very intelligent. I disagree with your stereotyping and I think others who have lived here would, too.xiongmao wrote:By and large Filipinas aren't hugely intelligent, so it shouldn't be beyond the wit of Western man to avoid her scams.
Happily married and living in the Philippines.
That's madness. When you step outside your country, internet wise or physically, you cannot assume you can avoid shit due to your intelligence. You being in China, you have no idea how easy it is for your ass to end up getting robbed, beaten, jailed, and deported with a stamp on your visa profile to never return. You could have done everything right too. Be foolish if you want to.....xiongmao wrote:By and large Filipinas aren't hugely intelligent, so it shouldn't be beyond the wit of Western man to avoid her scams.
Most scamming girls have perfected a craft. It's a craft that requires guile more than intelligence. And they've had lots of time to practice and many guys to practice on.
I agree with the OP that most scammers can be avoided, but you have to know the lay of the land. And the biggest mistake a guy can make is going to any country and thinking he is superior to the locals, whether because of his money, intelligence, Western worldliness or whatever. That's a recipe for disaster and you will get gobbled up.
And the fact that most Filipinas are good, poor and simple women can allow those who are not good to take advantage, particularly if you assume they are all stupid.

(1) if someone is a heartless golddigger, and f***s me for a while, no tears there
(2) If she f***s me for a while before she figures out that I don't have any money, well, heh heh heh.
(3) I am not as dumb as I look. Pretty hard to fool.
I thought that this was an interesting video, a victim of scamming who speaks from experience, not fear.
