Most Filipino dating scammers work on the principle of low value, high volume scamming.
Typically this involves asking a victim to send a small amount of money to buy food, pay for daily living expenses, internet access, hiring a private room with a webcam or numerous other variations on the above.
For all the excitement about policing the web with image detection algorithms, machine learning, and other tools, the task of keeping the internet functioning and habitable still falls to people.
Beneath the slick automation of companies like Google and Facebook hides a hidden army of manual laborers—many in countries like India and the Philippines.
This is a ploy to gain greater sympathy from you when they reveal that “mom” will die in 24 hours unless you send the funds for an emergency operation.
In this scam the scammer will contact the victim and explain that either they or some close family member has had some tragic accident or medical emergency and will die or suffer grave consequences unless you send them enough money to pay for the medical fees.
Typical scenarios include traffic accidents, brain hemorrhages, heart attacks, kidney operations etc.
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.
Shortly later they will tell you they need additional money for a passport, visa fees, transportation to the airport and miscellaneous expenses.
