  1. Agreed, I said I was wrong, 18 crimes a day out of almost a million people is not bad odds.
  2. So it seems crime is going down, while it is the highest crime in the area. :hystery: :nudie: Cebu City tops CV crimes listTHE Police Regional Office (PRO) 7’s crime statistics showed that Cebu City posted the highest number of crimes in Central Visayas with 1,137 cases in the past two months.Senior Supt. Mariano Natuel said yesterday the numbers showed a drop of 139 cases compared to the same period last year that had 1,276 cases.Based on the current crime statistics, at least 18 crimes occurred in Cebu City every day.
  3. It is true that some branches will have much more experience with those transfers and my point was to make people aware that they could have issues if they do not know what to tell the bank that they want. I could call Wells Fargo to complain but the ladies I spoke to and dealt with were all very nice and I do not wish to get anyone in trouble, IMO it is not their fault that the company has not trained them properly or given them instructions to follow to accomplish those transfers and part of it was my fault for not doing a recent internet search and thus finding the updated pages that I beli
  4. Art2ro had sent me an email because I had failed to update a thread somewhere on the forum about this but before I left I had promised I would, so here is my opinion based on my experiences with trying to send money via Wells Fargo to BPI, in short do not waste your time but your experience may vary.First of all I called Wells Fargo and got the run around and then told that I had to call another number to set up the direct send. I called the other number only to be told by the employee that I had to go into the bank to set it up, why didn't the first woman tell me that, I have no idea.I spent
  5. I looked at their page before I posted that and they have one right on the front page but as I said, expensive.
  6. Thank you for the thank you, few people actually realize how much work goes on behind the scenes of running a forum and keeping it set up, so I did my best in the past to help Tom but he did most of the hard work, so IMHO he is the one who deserves most of the thanks. The other mods also deserve a thank you because it is they who approve new members posts and keep the forum civil. Neither Tom or I, or any member that I am aware of, with the exception of the one who I believe is being talked about in this thread, has ever tried to part anyone with any of their money, and for my part, I had been
  7. I am not sure where they are located and prices seem high to me but this one says they ship free to anywhere in the Philippines. http://pcpadala.com/
  8. I have covered about one third of Mindanao and have never had a major problem but suggest people stay out of the ARMM area and they should be safe, so if a person sees a pretty lady in say Cagayan de Oro or Davao then I would say go for it, also been to Luzon and settled on Cebu. IMHO the largest quantity of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in all the places I have been in the Philippines are in Cebu and Manila but there are many beautiful women all over the Philippines, it just seems to me that there are many more in Cebu but that is my taste in women and everyone will have different
  9. Exactly. What has been going on with all the disasters lately is not a normal cycle IMHO. Yes that might be one answer, and I believe it was me who posted asking what is going on. Whatever it is, I can only hope it will stop.Here is yet another possibility but I have no idea if that could also be causing all the other disasters but apparently some think it relates.Solar flare affecting Earth's weather patterns As we see various rain storms, more than usual for this time of year, we can notice that the recent solar flare, rated as a s3 flare, has affected the magnetic field just enough to cau
  10. This is a terrible tragedy, some news reports are saying the death toll will rise because 92 are missing in one area and around 100 homes have been buried in a landslide. What the heck is going on with all these disasters now happening. :hystery: Filipinos grieve as earthquake death toll rises
  11. Let us not forget her and lets us pray those responsible get what they deserve, be they the ones arrested or if innocent then someone yet to be caught. May she rest in peace and hopefully get justice.The following day, her body was found dumped in a cliff in Guibuangan, Barili town, wrapped in a bedsheet and stuffed in a sack.A year later the parents of Ellah Joy Pique, Renante and Perla Pique, as well as her parents and relatives said they won’t give up the fight for justice for her death.A YEAR ago today, a 6-year-old grade 1 pupil was kidnapped while walking with her classmates on the way h
  12. Texts are coming in from friends and family and thankfully everyone is OK. Angelo sent a text early this morning to tell us that our building was OK but that he and a lot of other people ran out when the first jolt hit. I am now seeing the news and more are said to be dead than first reported, so I think the death toll will possibly continue to rise. I hope all of you are OK and that your families are OK as well.
  13. Seems some people may be misinformed about crime in the US verses the Philippines. FBI: U.S. violent crime down in 2011, fewer murders, rapes(Reuters) - Murders, rapes and other violent crimes dropped sharply in the United States in the first six months of 2011, continuing a downward trend that has lasted 4 1/2 years, the FBI reported on Monday.The federal law enforcement agency said preliminary January-through-June figures showed the number of violent crimes declined 6.4 percent from the previous year, led by a 5.7 percent drop in murders and a 5.1 percent decrease in rapes.In other violent c
  14. You are welcome, glad you and your wife can enjoy them. :grouphugg:
  15. Hi Steve, I made the post so members can see that it has now even being noticed by many of the locals who have their eyes open. We can all beat to death why it is happening and from what I read above most of you are probably correct, so I will not debate the issue, only say for all to watch their six, and try to enjoy life in the Philippines but with your eyes open and your head not buried in the sand.Crime can most often be prevented when a person is alert and aware of their surroundings and all of those who may be watching them. For instance I often used to use the BPI ATM machine in Ayala T
