In the 5 years I have been coming to the phils i have seen so much scamming it makes me puke .
I stayed at a hotel in a small city and seen at least 2 times a week a pina show up to meet her foreign boyfriend
with out fail she was married and had children but introduced them as brothers or cousins .
Now everyone but the stupid white guy knew the truth including the hotel staff and sat by giggling at the guy .
I have been scammed by my girls Mama at every turn from school fees which where over priced in fact the one brother had a full scholarship and now she wants 50t peso to sign marriage papers for me to marry her cash cow .
Now I see one girl get to go to work in the east whats her first order of business get a new boyfriend and post shit all over facebook even stating her longtime husband is her cousin .
All her friends play along giggling at the scam . hoping they will get a small piece for helping .
Not one of them sees this as wrong ?
In my everyday dealings I see dishonesty and out-rite lies with the end game getting free money
In 5 years I have met 3 pinos good to there word and honest . From padding bills to not providing what was promised is a everyday thing
The culture is ruined beyond any help yes the smiles are big and people act friendly but its all a part of the game
I hate the its not your problem /business I hear from my girl friend . They just sit back and watch others scamming each other and its all ok because it not you .
No one is held accountable for there actions for anything its open game to fuck over anyone especially foreigners .
I,m just thankful i,m not stuck in this shithole or invested anything .
What they call a culture is really just greed . I also see expats only last 3 to 5 years then most pack it in and head back to civilization .
Great place to holiday but its to bad there so many pinos there
