Our mission is to protect foreign men from being financially exploited by women in the Philippines.
GetConnected is a US-based company located in San Diego, California started by an American and part-time missionary working in both the US and the Philippines. We provide verification services and custom-tailored services to our customers to protect their financial interests.
Filipinas are some of the nicest people you can meet and very different from other women in other countries. Generally speaking, they are warm, caring, loyal, dedicated, and are used to a more simple way of living.
However, no one should forget that the Philippines is a poor, developing country with a high unemployment rate and a large part of the population that works for wages so low it would be considered slave labor by US standards. For most Filipinos, education stops in their mid-teens but interestingly enough, just about everyone speaks English. Filipinos are very family-oriented and have a strong sense of obligation to take care of their family.
Unfortunately, this environment and culture perpetuate a behavior from some unethical people who are desperate for a better standard of living in a country that offers very little hope of socio-economic advancement. The internet has caused international online dating to flourished in the Philippines but it has also attracted opportunistic women to prey on innocent victims for their own financial gain.
Foreigners are falling prey to these scams every day costing them thousands of dollars before finally realizing they have been deceived with no financial recourse.
Our best advice is to NEVER send money to anyone overseas no matter what their situation is. If the woman professes her love to you for everything except your money, then they will still love you if you say no. If they don't, it's better to have found out sooner than later that their intentions are deceitful.
The most common scams are fabricated stories of some financial crises, the money necessary to continue to communicate with you, money for immigration paperwork, online sex, and getting you to disclose your personal information to them or a website they want you to join for various reasons. Best practice - Don't give any money and don't give your personal information including credit card numbers to anyone or any site for any reason. Trust us, please. Just don't do it. Save your money.
For those of you who are too (let's say) kind-hearted to say no, GetConnected-USA has an option for you. You can make us the bad guy. If you're getting ready to send money to someone you have never met and you want some assurance you're not being deceived, you can use our services to verify the person that is receiving the money and the reason they need it for. Anyone legitimate will not object to you being cautious. If they do, it should be an obvious red flag they are out to scam you.
What's nice about our protection service is this. You probably won't have to pay GetConnected-USA a dime. With the mere fact that you now have protection, the perpetrators will most likely be discouraged and give up before you ever engage our services.
This is how it works. You tell the party abroad you are using a service that will verify their identity and/or the reason for the financial assistance before you release the funds. If they aren't legitimate, be prepared for a lot of excuses. Again, anyone who is sincere and in desperate financial need will do anything you ask without opposition.
If you decide to engage our services, our fees start at $24.99 plus expenses. We are offering this service very inexpensively to promote our name and build trust and rapport with you. GetConnected-USA offers other services as well that include a travel and concierge service designed to help you save time, money and avoid a lot of aggravation if you decide to visit the Philippines.
