Default Need a private detective

Howdy folks:

I'm one of the idiots you've heard about that fell in love with a girl there but am having questions about whether I'm being taken for a ride.

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.

Welcome Airborne,

With the Philippines being what it is, it would be near impossible to find someone or an agency that will not just take your money and as such it is very ill advised to try.

Also, with the lady, if you have to wonder if you are being taken for a ride, you probably already have the answer.

Only way to be certain is to spend time here with the person to be sure.



Best of luck..

Thanks Jet/Gary.

I actually was over there a couple of times - had an absolute blast. Waiting for the annulment to go through I think she may have strayed. I know I could just tell her to get lost but I have a paranoid streak and it has gotten me into trouble before and I can't let it ruin my life. I'm trying to be rational but at the same time I've got a K visa in process and don't want to import a bad deal. Appreciate your advice.

There's nothing paranoid about questioning what's what when so much is riding on the outcome.
Dealing with gals here it is smart to be sure and then there is always the concern if they will actually qualify for the visa to leave here and/or be able to pass the physical exam and embassy interview to do so.
Remember though, there are lots and lots of gals here so if it doesn't work out, don't give up

I would not start an K Visa process until the annulment is finished. Annulments can take some time, I have heard as quick as 6 months and some even longer than 3 years. So do not rush into anything. Use this time to sort things out with her and above all listen to your gut.

Try to look rationally at your misgivings. Write them down and then look at them objectively.

There are lots of scammers and just as many gems. Everything from the carabao died, mama is sick, I need money so that I can chat to you from home (get my own internet), etc.

I have also read the horror stories where guys met a woman online and even met her in person (appeared to click) but only to find out later that she was stringing along several foreigners at the same time and all of those guys sending her money to live on. These scammers have no qualms about taking advantage of your hard earned money.

I would not spend my money on a PI. I would minimize financial and emotional losses. I would simply cool off or (drop it like a hot potato).
