Well, today was the first time I've noticed an advanced-fee scam email from the Philippines.  Certainly I've read about many Filipina scammers who scam money from foreigners online, and certainly I've received thousands of Nigeria 419 advance fee fraud emails.  This is the first from the Philippines.  I'm sure it won't be the last.  This stuff is becoming more popular, because with so many new internet users, there are always some people who might believe it. 

If you get an email like this, don't believe a word of it.
