About Us

Overview:

There are many issues about expats in the Philippines, these are mainly spread over many YouTube Channels.
Our aim here at Expats Forums, is to give a One Stop place where anyone interested can access the opinions of the many YouTube Channels without searching for them individually.

History:
This site, as its URL (Expats Forums) suggests, was originally set up as Forum Site.
After the untimely death of the original owner, a group of us decided to carry on the legacy.
However, With the changing face of social media, saw a lot of the members move to Facebook and similar media.
We therefore decided to close the Forum a few years ago and domain name has been in hibernation since then.

Name:
As the Domain Name was paid up for several years and we become interested in the reporting and exposing of so many expats, Mainly with YouTube channels, defrauding their viewers and making a substantial living by ebegging.
We have therefore decided to use this site to bring all these into one central point, but what started with just 3 expats has now grown to what it is today.
We are aware that it is not the most fancy of websites, but website design is not our main aim, rather our focus is on content.

Owners:
The three current owners* of this Expats Forums are expats from Canada, New Zealand and Australia and have a combined excess of over 100 years’ experience either visiting or living in the Philippines, with all now retired and living in the Philippines. 
All reside at least six months of the year and have family in the Philippines
