Some even go as far as to say the want a Filipina nanny, and go one to extol our virtues. I am like, "C'mon! You think I am that stupid or desperate?"
I think it's funny, but I also see it as a sad reflection of the nature of some people and their perception of Filipinas/women in general. Do you think people still fall prey to these scammy offers?
Oh, by the way, I have a job, tyvm.
