HAHAH I think I ran into one of these people
I was waiting by the 41 bus stop @ Joyce Station and was having a smoke, so I stood away from the line-up. A Filipino man (looked mid-twenties) came up to me and asked if I would like to donate, but I told him that I only had a few dimes left. He then proceeded to ask me if I had any bills ... then I was like "... nah, sorry."
He didn't ask anybody in the line up; he picked out the people who stood off to the side

One of the scammers tried to hustle me for money at the 41st and Joyce bus stop too. A young guy asked me for a donation, small change, to help Filipino orphans. Then he does his routine and shows the photoshopped pictures of kids on pamphlets to get my sympathy.

I didn't want to get into an argument with him. So what I did I do? I made a deal with him. -pretended that I was also doing fundraising to help the Japanese after the earthquake at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

-told the dude. "Ok. I'll make you a deal. You want a five dollar donation from me, you give me five dollars for the Japan earthquake fund."

The dude gives me a a "WTF?" kind of stare, then says "Are you serious?"

"Yeah. I am serious. Dead serious." He still thinks I'm playing games with him.

The Filipino keeps asking me for 5 bucks, while I give him the same reply "Give me $5 bucks for the Japan Earthquake fund, and I'll give you five bucks." This exchange goes on for about five minutes.

Then the bus arrives and I just take off with a smile. It worked. I flipped the scam on the Philippino.

the one on kingsway and victoria? they were at the dollarama across the street.

Is it wrong that I enjoy reading posts about members trolling these scammers?

this is very prevalent among newer Filipinos, many of the guys try to sponsor their "Wife", which is really their sister, cousin etc. just so they can re-unite with their family. I hear many stories from people that are account managers or representatives at banks that open up shiet loads of new accounts for Filipinos, and their suppose wife looks like their sister. This happens with other races too unfortunately.

I think one of the problems with these scams is that filipinos are the largest beneficiaries of the "skilled-labour" policy for immigration, where many come here with nursing, care-aid certificates/skills. From what I heard from my friends, the ones that come here with the fake credentials and cant find proper jobs are the ones that are resorting to these scams.

These ppl are at BCIT everyday and it's fucking annoying. Now with a typhoon happening it's even easier for them to trick ppl into giving them money.

As a filipino-canadian this makes me sick.

Because of the scammers, I now associate Filipino people asking for donations as scammers. So the very first thing I thought about was the scammers are going to get rich for the next month or 2 by asking for straight cash donations or selling stickers

lol first thing I thought of of when clicking "last page" of this thread was "hey, I thought philipino ladies were doing this scam ever before the 2013 typhoon". Then I went to the first page and realized this thread is from 2010...

i knew this thread would eventually be bumped with what's going on. as unfair as it may be, these type of people ruin what may be genuine intentions to help (just look at the other thread).

publicly shaming the scammers would probably help just as much as donating to a reputable organization.

Only time I've come across this was at the Library downtown. They worked in waves.

At the front door, the bridge leading to the library, the library entrance, the escalators.

I hope I come across these people I get enjoyment from telling twats like this to get fucked and if they want to argue even better. It's like telemarketers, I get excited when they call so I can fuck with them in different ways.

It seems these women have made their way onto the island as well. I've been approached by these women on two occasions. The first time was a couple months ago. I was walking through UVic with my earphones in and my head down looking at my phone when out the corner of my eye I see this little asian lady weeding her way through a group of people and coming straight towards me. As soon as she gets to me, she grabs my arm with one hand with and flings her book on top of my phone and pushes it into me. I had no idea what this was about so I stopped and took out one of my earbuds. All I hear is something along the lines of "donations..children, Philippines.. $5..sign here" I said "no thanks" and started walking again, but she proceeds to stand in front of me and walk backwards and repeat her speech again..all while her book was still on top of my phone. I put my earbud back into my ear and kept walking. She finally gave up after realizing I wasn't going to stop, which was about ten feet away from where she initially stopped me.

The second time happened a few weeks ago at the same place I encountered the first lady. I was walking with my earphones in when I see this lady come towards me with a book in her hand. I recognized the book, so I didn't bother taking out my earphones. I just told her "no thanks" and continued walking. She tried walking beside me and pushing her book into me, but i just kept on walking and she gave up.

Since the Asian population is smaller on the island compared to the lower mainland, I got a good chuckle at how they only target people who looked Asian. There were Caucasian people walking around me both times I encountered them, but these women all made an extremely obvious effort to only make their way towards the Asian crowd.

If you get really pissed off and they are persistent you can also be a jackass and say "me luv you long time $5 for quickie quickie!" Hopefully that will scare off the women?

You guys should just tell these old hags to fuck off. Don't be nice, they'll just loiter around some more. If people start swearing at them, laughing in front of their face and calling them ugly twats, or pushing them into the bushes, they'll get the message! =)
