1 Promise of Marriage by Filipina on Fri Sep 07, 2012 1:47 am

Dear Atty,

Thank you very much for putting up this forum where we can get free but very helpful legal advise.

I have a Belgian friend who is 67 years old, retired and currently living in Belgium. He was duped by a woman from a Philippine town who pretended to be his girlfriend and promised to marry him in September.

He sent her money to help her family and buy properties in her town in preparation for his proposed transfer to the Philippines. Whenever he would ask for copies of the deed of sale and documents, she would just show it through the webcam and not scan it, saying that the scanner was not available. In August, though, she started fighting with him and calling him dirty names. Then she stopped communicating.

He has sent a total of 2 million plus already through money transfer like western union. He wrote to a pastor in her town through an email add he found online. The pastor said she has bought several properties, car and built a new house because a foreign friend was helping her. It turns out she is married and has one child. Sometimes, it is the sister who receives the money.

Is there any chance that he can recover his money? What does he need to do to go about it? He does not want to come to the Philippines yet unless there is a need for him to as it will entail even more expenses.

Thank you very much. God bless!

in the case we handled, we filed both a civil and criminal case. our client didn't have to come here at all. in the end we were able to recover 40 percent of what was lost.
