Report:  This is a very tricky one. Beware! I have corresponded and exchanged photo's daily with her for a whole week before the first sign that something was wrong appeared. I received a copy of her passport so that I could see that she was who she claimed to be and that she was as old as she claimed to be, though I never asked her to do this. Then she said she needed some money for the internet connection. It wasn't much, so I was stupid enough to send it. After 3 days she made her next move and the story became really bizarre. She said that she wanted to enter a Beauty pageant to try to win money for her sister who was very ill, but she needed money for a night gown, and if I didn't send it she would pawn her computer. She was becoming desperate because she felt I wasn't buying her story, So she claimed that she really loved me even though we never met. In one of her letters her English dramatically improved and there were emoticons in it which she had never used in the past. Obviously someone took over to keep me on board. Very stupid. In the end it was not the little bit of money that I sent that bothers me, but the waste of time and hope. I reported this to the dating site FilipinoCupid, and they removed her profile. She may turn up somewhere else though. What is so curious about this one is the copy of the passport. It doesn't look faked, so I think it likely that she will use the same name again.
