      being a contractor most of my working life ive met so many blokes who have/are sending money over to these young girls men......in there wallets they have these false pics of the person wearing a scolarship cap and gown ect, all a con but its always the older man in their 60's or disabled men who have had accidents leaving them only slightly brain damaged but still able to trace one of these people for plessure ect.....im working with one right now, he was in a coma ,should have died but pulled through , he married this Thai, she controlls him and his money, i feel like shakin him at times but it would not help ...and now she has brought her sister over last week ,already a 60 odd yr old from work has latched onto her ........it does wind me up a little ,

      It's hard isn't it, do you, like you say, try and talk sense in to them or do you let them enjoy what life they have left, tough one

      It seems Russia has now jumped on board and you can pay 3000 for a Romance Holiday to meet your new bride http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...ian-wives.html

      It works the other way too, there are a lot of Filipino women living in Australia married to Australian men and the men are not always good to them. There is a Filipino womens association now set up to help these women. My neighbour is Filipino and she is married to a great guy and has been for a long long time, family grown up, however they get their family and friends over to marry guys you would not believe just to get to be here. I have been to some of their parties and seen for myself. They are so desperate for a better life and often they have to keep family back home. My neighbour told me she never goes home to visit because all her family wants is her money lol
