Heaps to get done?

How many heaps are you being told it's going to cost a Filipino for a correction of records?

To tell the truth im not sure exactly how much the first ones cost, and i say ones because there was 4 birth certificates, Mothers and 3 kids and mothers name was spelled wrong on all of them. It all came from the cash flow i was sending mum.

My wife's maiden name was Remandeman a large family originating from Carriara Leyte
When she was young her father moved to Tacloban City, here there is another family named Remandemen about 90% of the time here, what ever official wants to correct her name to the ones from here. Over the years she has learned to be ever watchful that some well meaning person does not screw up her paper work.

Holly, I read through one of your other post, and really its none of my business, but I have to say from experience, what your paying seem exorbitant to me, also through experience, love is blind, I posted my experience somewhere on here...make sure your not being had..

well i now know i could be, but if i am she is very good at it.
I have now followed the advice of a well respected member and have stopped all cash flow.
we are still talking every day but it will be interesting to see for how long.
I know all you guys are looking out for me now, and you may be correct in your thinking
But i dont think so, but you guys have opened my eyes to a few things, and i will proceed with absolute caution for now on in.

Concur!

I suspected it from the his initial post.

holly1,

Sir, concerning the more than a half million pesos that you stated that you already paid for her annulment.

Did she ever show you pictures from her wedding or any legitimate proof to show that he was factually married in the Philippines where she even required the annulment?

There are other Foreigners who have paid for bogus, unneeded annulments so that is why I ask.

Holly, I myself got scammed and uncovered the truth less than 6 months ago. What I learned from it all was that these woman are seriously good at it. I was embarrassed, angry and relieved all at the same time. Follow your instincts and allow yourself the right to not feel like you have to be the hero. You'll get the answers soon enough if the funds dry up.

If you need anymore advice or thoughts pm me.

Holly, I need to say one more thing, then I will shut up...there is a lot of experience on this forum. Some of us have experienced pretty much the exact thing we see you going through.
Many here have said they think your getting scammed...
I was always told if all your friends think something is wrong then you should probably look at it, look at it hard.
It is very possible to find a wonderful girl in the Philippines but from my experience its not easy and you will run through a bunch before you find one that truly loves you for you.

Some of the girls here could easily win the Academy award for acting.

I hope I am wrong, but I very much doubt that I am and everybody else that has expressed doubts are wrong also....
Dude I wish you luck and hope things will go good for you. The below link is what happened to me....and Im not that easy

I am listening to you guys, and all i can do now is to proceed with ext ream caution as i said.
I really really dont think she is a scammer,BUT i now do have some strong doughts so all money will now be stopped and we will see what happens from there, That is all i can do, I cant just up and leave just because i THINK may be i am being had, I need proof, and sending her no funds will give me that proof, If she sticks with me then i'll know she is a keeper.
The only thing that is worrying me is I know she will be in VERY financial hardship with out my help, SO sending some one to the wall and financially hurting some one is that the sort of thing you do just to see if they MIGHT be scamming you. (but i have done done it,started 3 weeks ago.) now we wait.

Yes i have seen her philippine marriage pics,and marriage certificate,and met her kids from that marriage. so all good there.
and her name on the kids certificates is spelt 3,or 4 different ways, IMMI say the spelling must be the same as whats on her passport which is ELEANOR. on certificates
it is spelt ELENOR<ELEONOR<, so they all need to be corrected, and yes i have see and have in my possession the certified copies of those birth certificates.

One thing i would like to say is , I dont think she is a scammer, BUT she is very quick to spend my money, I do think she is a keeper and i do think she loves me, but she thinks i am a westerner and have lots of money. even though i tell her different. She thinks money is made to go round,and she will spend it, even her money does not last long in her hands. thats the problem i think.
But i may be wrong only time will tell now. and i will tread with caution and no more money for family , she has sisters they can help her.

Ill like to add just one more thing, This women organised and payed for a plane ticket to come and visit me here in Australia, that was our first meeting, No help from me at all.
when she went back home to japan after her visit she sent me lots of small gifts, t shirts shorts ,shoes things like that. a watch worth about $300, other small things.
IT was about 10 months after we met that i gave her any thing, nothing. but she still stayed with me, i then had a massive heart attack and she called me up every day say 4,5 times a day to see if i was ok, as far as she new then i was a poreper, and we have been together 5 years now, just like to remind people of that .cheers.
