If you ask an average  Filipino or an average Filipino family if he wants to be financially or economically prepared in, or for the future, the typical and obvious answer would be a “YES”, but most Filipinos rarely hear and understand ESTATE PLANNING. Estate PLANNING is a word more less avoided by Low  to Average income earning FILIPINOS, maybe because  of the stigma that it is only for the rich or for families that owns large lands and several properties. Due to this misinformation, lack of knowledge and ignorance, low to average income Filipinos tend to fall prey to this “GET RICH QUICK SHEMES”, INVESTMENT FRAUDS AND OTHER SIMILAR SCAMS.

To supplement this STUDY with ample and sufficient DATA, this research will be composed of current information from PHILIPPINE STATISTICS AUTHORITY of the data of income brackets and population in the locality and in the whole Philippines if possible. The process will also involve ONLINE SURVEYS and Personal survey if possible. In addition will conduct online interview and personal interview if possible, from people in the industry or professionals in connection to ESTATE PLANNING, and most especially to the very people this research aims to be benefited with, the low to average income earning Filipinos.

Secondly, to differentiate a legitimate investment from an investment fraud, to avoid scams and to know how, where and whom to report.
