Angelica: Honey I have a problem. My internet bill is due today and I cannot pay it.
You: Why can’t you pay it? I already sent you $100 two weeks ago plus you started your new job at the call center 2 months ago.
Angelica: As I already told you I’m only earning 6000 every 2 weeks.
You: Hmm that’s interesting because last month you told me you make 10,000 every two weeks
Angelica: I meant to say 10,000 pesos…sorry baby…
You: Uh-huh I gotta go
How to Know if Your Filipina is Honest
You just caught your Filipina in a lie because you had actual numbers. Filipinas can be master manipulators and you need to look out for some of their tricks. Your best weapon to know if your Filipina is honest it to have a good memory. Judge Judy always says when you tell the truth you don’t need a good memory.
Fact: Filipino scammers that like to lie are most likely chatting with multiple guys and telling them multiple stories. It’s hard to keep track of all those stories and eventually, they’ll slip up.
Specificity is Your Friend
When you’re chatting up a girl in The Philippines always try to get specifics when having a conversation. For example, if you’re talking about your jobs, don’t just ask what she does. Ask her what her job title is. You can do this tactfully. If she tells you she graduated from college ask her what her degree is in and what university specifically.
Fun fact: The top universities ‘The Big 4’ in The Philippines are: University of The Philippines, Ateneo University, De La Salle University, University of Santo Tomas
Remember that Facebook messages don’t go away. Anytime she gives you a number you can cross-reference it with a number she gave you before. Whenever she asks for money always make her give a detailed explanation of why she needs it.
Use ‘what about’ questions. For instance, if she’s claiming to need money for her Lola’s hospital bill, make sure you ask ‘well what about your job?’ ‘What about’ questions are a great way to get her to give you numbers.

Ask for Details
A lot of times Filipina scammers will try to lie about having the same interests as you. If she tells you she has a particular interest ask more questions about it. If, for example, she tells you her faith is strong and she goes to church every Sunday ask her what her favorite Bible verse is. A true Christian woman of faith shouldn’t have any problem telling you her favorite bible verse without even having to think about it.
Do What The Cops Do
When the cops interrogate someone they’ll ask a question, get the answer, and then they’ll ‘confirm’ a different answer later in the interview. This is a good tactic because it goes back to what I said earlier. If you tell the truth you don’t need a good memory.
You can ask her what subject is her degree in and let’s say she tells you it’s in Hotel and Restaurant Management, when you first meet and maybe after a month ago you can bring it up in conversation that she said she had a degree in Caregiving (yes that’s a degree in The Philippines).
Common Things Filipinas Lie About
Just remember their goal is to get you to like them so you’ll give them a better life. So here are some common lies you’re likely to hear if you chat with enough Pinays
- Telling you she’s a virgin
- Saying you’re the only foreigner that she’s ever chatted with
- Claiming love after 1 or 2 chats
- Lying about the strength of her faith
- A typhoon blew down her house
- Her lola (grandma) is in the hospital
- She has no children
- That she graduated from college
Get Her Off Her Script
I used to work as a cell phone salesman for a major carrier here in The US. I remember in training I had to read all sorts of information about over a dozen phones and I remember thinking to myself ‘how the heck am I gonna remember all of this stuff?!’ Turns out when I got in the phone with most of the potential customers they all asked pretty much the same questions: “How much does it cost?” “What colors do you have?” and “How many minutes and gigabytes of data should I get?”.
Turns out that Americans looking to date Filipinas also ask pretty much the same questions. “How old are you?” “What are you looking for?” ” Do you have children?”and “How many other foreign boyfriends have you had?”
That’s why most Filipinas looking to manipulate someone have a script that they use with pretty much every single guy that they talk to. They know what to say to get you the most excited about dating them. Therefore if you want to catch a Filipina in a lie asking her unexpected questions is the best way to throw her off her script. A study revealed
this was one of the best ways to catch identity thieves.
She expects that you’ll ask her how old she is. But what if instead, you ask her what year she was born? If she hesitates and has to think about it then you’ll know she’s a liar. This obviously works better in a voice chat then a text chat. She knows you’ll ask how many foreign boyfriends she’s had before. But what if instead, you ask ‘what does your family think about you talking to guys so far away?’ This might trip her up into saying something like ‘oh they’re used to it’ or ‘they don’t care’. Those are signs she’s talked to many foreign guys before you.
Best ways to avoid Filipina scammers
My grandmother used to tell us growing up that the best way to keep from getting sick is to eat with clean hands. If you want to avoid scammers the best way is to be a person of honor and integrity yourself.
If you approach Filipinas like you’re a celebrity that has his pick of the litter or worse that you can buy a person, you shouldn’t be surprised if you don’t get good results.
Take your time. There’s no rush. Many girls will try to rush you into a relationship and marriage but there’s simply no reason to rush. Someone that’s desperate to enter into a relationship isn’t someone that’s likely, to tell the truth even when it hurts. The word of a desperation person isn’t worth the air it’s spoken in.
