Sending Money to Filipinas

Discussions about sending money to Filipinas should go in this thread.

Many men worry about their Filipina girlfriends, so they often send them $50 or more a month.

Is this a good idea?

If you've not actually met the girl, then it's generally not a good idea to send money to the Philippines. The majority of girls who get men to send them money are SCAMMERS. And don't think you're the only guy sending her money. 10 x $50 remittances a month is a good income in the Philippines, so many girls try to find some sugar daddies from the USA or other Western countries.

I guess if you're arranging to meet a girl, then it's OK to send her a little money. But only send her money if she needs to travel to meet you or to book a hotel or something.

By all means bring a girl a gift if you're gonna meet her in person. But it's better to give her a physical gift rather than money. Chocolates or food from your own country is a good idea. Asian chocolate is junk (except for Pocky), so bring some good quality European stuff.

If you can avoid it, it's also best to not send money to your Filipino girlfriend after you've met, unless it's for a specific purpose (like applying for a passport, or English lessons). Again, it's all too easy for a girl to go back on that dating site and ask other men for cash :o .
