The con artist will have daily contact with the man via texts, email and telephone over weeks or even months.The contact is always through email, telephone and text messages.The girl then agrees to marry the man and go to meet him in his country (US, Australia, UK, etc.).She asks for money to apply for a Visa, then money for a trip to be interviewed.In one of the most prolific cons, the con artist a small group of Chinese men and an English speaking girl post a travel website and put a personal profile for the girl on asiafriendfinders.com, chinalovelinks.com, and other dating sites.The girl poses as a foreigner (usually Filipino) who lives in Guangzhou, Shenzhen or other city in Southern China.During the Spanish Colonial Period, the term Indio was used.
Sincerely, Love-stricken Chinese Girl Dear LCG, Hey, what can I say? ;-) And as regards the stereotypes you mentioned, I can hang with those -- no problem! You've written me this a while back and it's quite insensitive of me to have kept you waiting for an answer that must be quite important to you.However, according to my Filipina friend, Filipinos tend to go after their own or go after whites in order to "marry up".She told me that's how she was raised, and that unless the person she dated was Catholic, Filipino or Caucasian, there would be no way she would be allowed to date.But shortly before my pregnancy turned 4 months, he came to our house to seek my mom’s permission to marry me because he didn’t want the scandal that our impending plan will bring.But for me marriage is a life time commitment; I didn’t want to agree to get married just because I was pregnant and without love.The website of the organization Kaisa para sa Kaunlaran (Unity for Progress) omits the hyphen, adding that Chinese Filipino is the noun where "Chinese" is an adjective to the noun "Filipino." The Chicago Manual of Style and the APA, among others, also recommend dropping the hyphen.
