The Philippines, like all poor countries, has its fair share of scams and scammers. And as a "rich man" (comparatively, as an Australian man yes you are!) you need to be aware that you will always be a target for this annoying minority of Filipinas. Travel scams are scams that involve a travel agent, whether real or imaginary, and claims that you need to pay large amounts of money for various things in order to get a visa or for the lady to get on a plane.
