Philipino sex chat tango
This scam plays on the victim’s emotions and can be hard to resist.
It's important to remember that anytime anyone sends any money to any scammer, no matter how small, it encourages the scammer to harass other online daters for money.
In some cases they will also tell the victim that the visa requirements state that they need to have a certain amount of money in their bank account so they can proof to the immigration official that they have sufficient funds for their visa.
In another variation the Filipino lady may ask the victim to send money so she can hire a private room in an internet café. In the final variation of this scam the Filipino lady may explain that she is a student and is moonlighting as a webcam girl at an adult chat site.
The Filipino lady sends the user a link to an adult chat site and states that the service is free and a credit card is only needed for age verification.
In many occasions the scammer may have primed the victim by previously telling you all about their fake mom, son daughter etc and the victim may have even spoken to the fake mom, son daughter etc on the phone or by email.
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.
