These women have balls, I'm having dinner with a ladyfriend on a patio last night and while we are having a conversation they reach over the patio with a box and start asking for change. After I said I dont have any change, they immediately turn to her and start asking her, I rage and jumped up out of my seat and yelled screw off and they ran away.

I get this look from the date and "Why are you so rude???"

Because RS.

They just came in again to our office. Before they had their foot into the room while walking out of the lobby I stood up and said "Out" and pointed at the door.

How has it been deduced that this is a legit scam? I've worked with lots of Phillipinos to know they are one of the hardest working immigrants. They basically work their asses off 24/7 and then send money back to their families to help them out of poverty.

There's a reason why companies hire foreign temp workers like Phillipinos. They don't slack off, call in sick, skip work because they dont feel like coming in. They are definition of hard nosed blue collar work individuals. Not to mention Phillipino food is top notch

Have anyone of you guys see these Chinese monks asking for money?

I've seen them in HK and now I see more and more of them here in Vancouver.

Filipino scammers =/= Filipino people. I get what you're saying in your email and I think you have the wrong impression of what this thread is about.

Nobody is painting all Filipinos with the same brush or trying to discuss how they are terrible people.

There are a number of news stories on the issue:

Donating to Philippines typhoon victims? Watch out for these scams

Charity scam hits shoppers - Winnipeg | Globalnews.ca

Typhoon Haiyan donations: how to avoid the scams - British Columbia - CBC News

Local Filipino community reacts to charity scam - Star News Inc: News

Commons Children's Joy Foundation Charity Scam Community Discussions myUMBC

http://www.oregonlive.com/business/i...r_typhoon.html

Donating to Philippines typhoon victims? Watch out for scams - Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

http://gulfnews.com/news/gulf/uae/so...ctims-1.953619

Its the same as saying not all people from Ghana are pretending to be African princes on the Internet. We know its true, but there are just so many stories of scams out there in the public consciousness that have been going on for literally YEARS (as has this thread) if you see some folks asking for money to donate to the Philippines for X reason, you just naturally suspect its a scam.

Once I was approached, asking me for money in front of a save-on-foods because they had to buy milk for their two kids.

I asked for their names and was told 13 year old Mark, 9 year old James (or something or other) - I knew it was probably a lie, but dearly hoping it wasn't a lie, I gave them $10.

A few weeks later, same person, same story - so I asked for the kids names again...and suddenly it was 12 year old Fred and 6 year old Kevin.

I asked what happened to Mark and James, advised them that if they're going to lie, at least use the same lie, and told them to fuck off lol

Nobody is accusing filipinos of being slackers or lazy workers. i agree that they are one of the most hard working people around but the issue here is there is a growing number of filipinos taking advantage of disasters happening around and asking for donations/charities just to make profit. How do i know they are scammers? well quite honestly, i dont. I dont have a clue where the money goes or what they do with it but you ask them the same question and they cannot give you a straight answer either nor can they give any real proof or documentation that it is going to a good cause and just try to divert the question. All they have is a 3 ring binder with a couple pictures of disasters taken from google image and show them to bypassers. What makes it worse is their method of asking which lacks decency. I wont go into details as this thread already has a few examples of methods they use to ask for money but point is, these people need to stop being heartless for the sake of money.

for the sake of the arguement, i am filipino.

Two days ago I was approached by a philipino lady in Dollarama asking for money with the same MO as the ones in Vancouver.

Looks like they have gone national!

Don't be surprised to see these people at your local grocery store. Went to Superstore last night and got approached by one of these ladies. Started off with gong hay fat choi, then shoves me some print out of some charity. I told her CNY is a Chinese holiday, doesn't have anything to do with the Phillipines and walked away.

Good on them for working after hours for these charitable organizations.

Was approached by 2 scammers in front of the London drugs on kingsway by joyce. They were sold rude, I barely got out of my car, I opened my door and was still sitting in my seat when they approached and gave their spiel . I got out and said Sorry im not interested, blah blah blah, and they keep asking.

I asked for a license or something to prove they are legit and they gave this really fake ass laminated card thing. I was going to look it up on my phone to prove them it's fake. but didn't want to waste my time so said sorry not interested. They got really agitated that I would ask about their legitimacy and said I was rude. I just kept walking away.

BTW this was at like 9:30 at night as well.

I am Filipino and personally don't find any of this racist. Upsetting, maybe, that the stereotype of "Filipino scammer" is so common due to the bad apples in my group, but like all stereotypes they exist for a a reason.

For starters, none of these so-called donation seekers have any ID from the organizations they claim to work for, no uniforms, lanyards, hats, shirts etc. Not to mention most of them stutter/sound uncertain when asked about the actual organization itself that they supposedly represent. A lot of them are really rude too, and will grab you/pull on your jacket or arm if you walk away. Salvation Army, UNICEF, Red Cross etc., people generally don't do that. Legit organizations also never use kids - unless it's something FOR kids like Girl Guides/Boy Scouts, kiddie sports teams, etc - to get money.

I don't disagree that the majority of Filipino people I know are hard working people, my mom and dad are the hardest working people I know. But it's similar to the 5% of the East Indian population that are "Surrey Jacks", the 5% of Mainlanders who are rude and unclassy, or the 5% of the Vietnamese population who are wannabe gangbangers... the negative stereotypes often cast a shadow on the whole.

Btw Filipino food sucks compared to Chinese/Vietnamese/Japanese food. I'm Filipino though, so it may be just me tired of eating the same shit for the past 22 years...

^I agree with all of your points except the food thing. Admittedly I don't eat Filipino every day (only when I visit my parents which is a few days a week), but I crave home food as much as I crave sushi/pho/luc lac/ramen/etc when those cravings hit.

Like you my parents raised 3 kids with almost nothing, and I try when I can to return the favour. These scummy scam artists make it so hard to help the Filipinos that really need the help that I basically just donate to Red Cross and let them deal with dispersing the funds.

This past Christmas I was at metro sitting on a bench waiting for a friend. Two Filipino ladies comes by, one of them hands me an envelope that says something about asking for a donation. Then she opens up her folder and reveals the names of others who have donated, hands me a pen...

Told her I wasn't interested...
Lady: HONEY!! It's for a good cause!!!
Me: no thanks, not interested
Lady: BUT HONEY! Its for a good cause!
Me: no I am not interested...

Probably trying to scam the people giving donations to the temple thinking thats what they are doing if they gave them the money. I didn't see them there, but I also went earlier than 1 am.
