Filipina Escort Scam on Sydney Backpage
My Ozzie buddy in Sydney was browsing Backpage for hookers and noticed a hot Filipina escort on there. He’s a big fan of Pinays so he got her contact details.
She used Line as many Asian girls do, was chatty and happy to send him plenty of pics, including ones apparently showing her in Australia, and with clients.
Some bikini shots she sent
They got talking and her rates were $250 AUD for 4 hours, unlimited bangs. So far so good. For Australia prices that’s ok value for a hooker, she’s hot, uses Line, is sending underwear pics, what could go wrong?
He’s chatted to Asian prostitutes before and at this point no alarm bells were going off.
‘Proof’ of having customers for sex
He forwarded the full chat with her to me and some other mates and asked what we reckoned. There were some red flags.
To most guys reading these will be common sense signs of a scam. Some horny guys still risk it though.
Shut up and take my money!
#1 – Don’t Send Money Upfront to Hookers Online
She claimed to work for an agent and needed the cash for sex to be sent upfront before meeting. She sent screenshots of clients apparently wiring her the money.
‘Proof’ a customer sent her money before
And some more pics of herself apparently out and about being an escort.
‘Proof of bookings and clients’
Then she asked him to go to 7/11 to transfer the money by Moneygram before meeting. She gave her agent’s name as Gerard Paul Dacanay, 297 Merrylands Road, Merryland, Sydney 2160.
Starting to sound like a Nigerian
There was also some too good to be true promise of a ‘member card’ that could be used to bang her again free the next time 😀
Obvious scam is obvious
Sites like Backpage and Craigslist are full of scammers who aren’t really sexy Pinay escorts, but are dudes trying to steal your money.
Don’t send cash upfront before meeting a girl for the first time, in Australia, the Philippines, or anywhere.
At least she sent some wank material
#2 – Ask for a Video Call
None of the pics she sent are enough proof that you’re actually talking to a Filipina escort. You could easily be talking to a Nigerian guy using some random stolen images. Don’t get distracted by all the sexy pics.
More bikini shots
To really prove the person exists ask for a quick video call, or a pic of them holding a spoon, or today’s newspaper, or a handwritten message, or all of the above, until you’re sure the girl actually exists.
My mate asked for her to write his name out.
Lol that font
You can see the font is written on a computer with the fuzziness around the letters when you zoom in, and part of the ‘i’ got cropped out.
I told him to send this:
At that point he got blocked 🙂
Anyway follow those two rules and it’s pretty hard to get scammed.
Her Skout profile
The scammer was using the name ‘Jhoana’, claming to be a 24 year old Pinay in Parramatta, Sydney.
Dating Sites are a Safer Bet
For $250 AUD he might as well just put that towards flights to Angeles City, or if he’s stuck in Oz for a while take a dating site girl out to dinner. Filipino Cupid has 1000+ profiles of Pinays living in Australia. So does Pinalove. Just filter by country.
Only go with Backpage / Craigslist if the girls don’t ask for money up front and let you video call.
His next target
Update – Backpage has now been shut down, as have Craigslist personals. If you’re in Asia I recommend trying Smooci.com a new upcoming escort platform serving Bangkok, Manila and Singapore.
