    Yeah it's called Kawawa some travellers are like that.
    It's a dangerous thing a friend of mine who I met in 2009 from USA a young guy would beg money not just off tourists but Filipinos.
    He came to me in 7 11 and asked for a coffee.
    I was only in AC 10 nights even though I planned 7 months but they no longer changed American Express sterling TC and this time I brought no ATM.
    Cut a long story short when I got back Philippines in 2010 the guy got murdered.I was 35 he was 29 I still feel really bad for the guy cause we were friends and I don't Just make friends with any guy in AC I actually got a video on my channel called when you getting married the guy in Video is an old friend and the guy from USA went to his bar and drank 1000 Pesos worth of alcohol without paying the guy from USA was big so the gaurd just took his rucksack as collateral but next day he just went bar and took it his the guy who told me in 2010 about the guy getting murdered.
    Thier was also an article on Margarita Stn website.
    I also had a video on my old channel with me and him chatting a good friend I hardly knew but I still miss him.
    I think the guy see it as a game and it went to far.
    I try to tell other Expats about it but nobody is interested.
    sorry for long message but it rings some bells.

    I sit outside my condo building with my dog a lot, during the day a few times the trike line will get a good 50 people or more long. Bums sometimes will walk down the line and tap each person on the shoulder or grab their hands and ask for money. (all filipino) I watched this one middle age lady one day and she was getting every 3-4 person in line to give her money. I would say she made more in the Ten mins I watched her than many of the people in line made all day working at their jobs….

  5. Hi Matt ,  Check out this short video ( The expat song ) , you are mentioned in it in a good way . https://youtu.be/7YvN4M8pJO8

  6. the easy solution is go to indonesia, thailand, laos. for sure there is no or very few pilipinos in those places and prices are almost as cheap as the Philippines if not cheaper. Problem solve
