Default am i being scammed? - mayors permit philippines.....

hi. my girlfriend is now working in a restaurant and she has told me her boss asked her to pay for a mayors permit to work before she can get her salary. now it is her pay day and she still has not got this payment. she says the cost is 7000 for a mayors permit and blood test. does this seem right to you? this is almost half of her salary that she is to get.

Judging from your previous posts and the answers you got, I'd say yes, without a doubt you're being scammed!!

Hi Nick,

I agree 100% with Jojo. You are being used and scammed to the fullest. A Barangay clearance may be required when starting a new job and would cost NO MORE than P 50.00 = aprox $1us dollar.
The Mayors Permit is a yearly license purchased by a business owner that allows him/her to operate the business. This has nothing to do with an employee within the company and an employee has no obligation to pay a Mayors fee of any kind.

This is no girlfriend. She is a leach of the worst kind. Run like heck, have no further contact with this individual and keep looking...

Get the phone number of the hospital, phone them and ask. Tell your girlfriend that you will pay them direct.

If I'm wrong I apologise, but I assume thats why you're asking???? You know, it seems to me, you dont want to believe the worst and thats something you have to live with, but unfortunately, I think its fair to say that the answer to your problem has been answered unanimously on here.

Have you thought of making a surprise visit to your girlfriend?? Or inviting her to the UK to visit you???

I had both done last month (October 2013) at a major facility in Angles City.
(Chest) X-ray was P150.00 (one hundred fifty pesos). The blood test was a CBC (complete blood count) and was P300. (Three hundred Pesos). All in all, the total cost for both was about $10.50us dollars...
Note: the cost of the X-ray included the cost of a radiologist to read the x-ray...

That low cost of living and medical expenses is one of the major draws to being an expat here. That and it's never cold or any snow as well as super friendly people and over 7,000 islands to choose from for beaches.

The cost of blood test varies depending on what test are done and the same thing applies to x-rays. I have insurance in the USA that pays my test in USA. I do have a “small” co-payment but that co-payment is more than the entire bill in the Philippines. It is very cheap here!
