To make a long story short, I need to find a PI that will verify a few things for me, but for some reason I just don't trust the ones I see on CraigsList and I'm also not made of money and don't want to hire someone from a huge agency that will clean my wallet out for the next year.

If any of you know someone who would do an honest job, I'd sure be grateful for a recommendation. I basically need someone to check records and give me the straight scoop on who she is.

Thanks for reading this, hope you are having a good day.


Airborne...a couple of things to consider...first of all, if you really want to have her checked out, I have a good and close reliable American friend that works at the US Embassy compound here in Manila and they do some investigative research on their own time. I can put you in touch with him if you want but I am unable to reach you by private message on this Forum. I am not sure how to get your personal email or send you his contact info...

Secondly...before you spend any time or money having this woman checked out, are you even sure you want to be involved with someone who you do not trust up front? If you have questions and doubts now, where does that really leave the relationship? Getting involved romantically and financially with a clear lack of trust is a huge RED FLAG...

Let me know if you want to contact my friend at the Embassy...If you really believe you love her and she IS the one...go for it and make her a part of your life...if you are NOT sure...let her go and get on with your life!

most of the girls I have met in and from the Philippines I would take hands down over an American girl. i don't know how you can see it any other way.

It has not been mentioned but if you feel your being scammed search the internet, fb and the like. Most Filipinas use the heck out of fb and lots have multiple fb pages...its a lot of work but I have found by searching the friends there usually you can find if there are multiple pages.

Also there are numerous sites dedicated to publishing the names and pictures of scammers..

Wife has a cousin (women) that works 2 full time jobs like you mentioned but when they show up it's like they're very wealthy people, big shots, LOL.... They send money constantly and if they're married to an expat they do use his money or they don't contribute but wastefully send money here.

People do get by here but the trouble is most in the states don't see it, people do get sick but not like the US, many old people still working very hard jobs, I was amazed at how weak and overweight I was when I arrived and how strong the Philippine citizen is, most of these emergencies are boloney to get more money out of you and my experience is that the money doesn't go to where it needs to.

When you have 80 year olds still drinking "Lambanog" and regular you'll see just how strong and how good the local diet is towards overall health, those that smoke or exposed to dirty air well they don't make it to 60.

Not to derail the subject (even tho I suppose this will), but why would one need a "complete transfusion cuz they caught dengue."? I have had dengue, and knows more than a dozen people that have had it. I have never heard of needing any transfusions for dengue. Extreme cases and low immune systems will require IV's for dehydration caused by the fever.
"There is no specific medicine to treat dengue infection. If you think you may have dengue fever, you should use pain relievers with acetaminophen and avoid medicines with aspirin, which could worsen bleeding. You should also rest, drink plenty of fluids, and see your doctor. If you start to feel worse in the first 24 hours after your fever goes down, you should get to a hospital immediately to be checked for complications.
I would suggest that anyone that "needed money" for a complete transfusion was probably scamming money.

I have heard of this and I think the scammer is the doctor/hospital.

Hi Jeauris, hopefully, Cebu Citizen will get back with you but I haven't heard from him in a while so until then I found a few links for the Cebu area.

hey Airborne 11b

I hate to burst the bubble but i have been scammed twice there by these girls. Most are looking for money to support them and their family. It is always stated not to send money, but sometimes if you want to chat with a girl there you need to break the golden rule. Most can't afford to have extra money for internet or data fees. If they want more money then that, then it is probably a scam. I also scammed by a so called PI in Davao city. He was the biggest crook of them all. Tread likely and don't send money for all the excuses the girl has given you. Like I said paying for data fees is n ot that bad. Don't let the girl tell you she has to have wifi connection. that is a lie. Data is a little slower but it works.

good luck,

art
