Anyone who's ever visited Morocco already knows how vicious Moroccans can be.So it's best to never visit Morocco and avoid it all.

Most people are aware of how Moroccans are being devious. But there's two areas where Moroccans normally don't enter SAHARA and ALGERIA but if they do enter either of those areas they're never seen again.

Becareful in morocco
Most people here are beggers, even educated, working people, they are all con-artists.
they will ask for money .. or a loan with no intention of paying back .... women ask for money or taking them shopping ... every day thing... they are selfish , self centered people ... if you are from Europe or USA women and men are after visa ... bunch of con-artists. divorce rate is very high because of it....
Keep small change for small taxi.. they cheat you ... even at hyper-market they short change you ....
not a place to visit nor live ... dishonesty is way of life.
buyer be aware.... be safe - stay safe

I agree with your comments on Jan 16,2020 ANONYME !!! That's why men from Assad come to Morocco and steal your fresh pretty women for our own use and your wives too only if they are worthy of us Assad men.Anywhere in Morocco is good for harvesting your women especially at night.

I am moroccan and i dont encourage you to live in big cities like casablanca. Its typically high in population.scarcity of jobs , low salaries and the majority of employers wont fiscaly declare you which will eleminate you from basic health insurance, retirenent..ect. The ideal is come to this country as a tourist, target small cities in the south. Its also beneficial for people seeking extended stay who want to move in and live a decent life and enjoy the nice weather.

I regret when I read comments praising Morocco, so I am sure that these people are ignorant of the truth of Morocco and the Moroccans, a Moroccan may invite you to eat free food and show you generosity and generosity at first, but you will pay the price of that food and more than that when he gets your trust and focuses on you and robs you of what you have and hits you a blow that you will never again I know foreigners who came to Morocco and were fooled and deceived. Their fate was displacement, and some of them were physically liquidated. I am Moroccan and no one will know Morocco and the Moroccans more than me, a swindler, a fraud and a terrorist peuple.

Is there any jobs available for a women age 62 in Casablanca.I would love to work here and get the experience in living in another coutry and learn everything new about this country and city and near by cities.

I have gone through most of the people made comments about Casa.I wanted to move there in the center or sett lite of Casa. To my wonder when a Moroccan Engineer is having a Salary of US$200 PM or bit more how the city can be very expensive then London.If the wages r up to this level by economic laws you can not hang the locals with very high price this is a global law.If the salaries are low the food and and other consumers items must be low .
I am from Pakistan good experienced engineer take minimum salary not less then 2000 US$ in his pocket in Pakistan but still we have food transportation clothing are still in our reach not that expensive.House or a villa in good location 5 bed room furnished with garden and parking for 5 to 7 cars are available between 1000 to 1500 US$ per month.
By the way If anybody can help me that 3 or 4 bed room flat outside Casablanca how much it will cost or how much the rent will be .How much money one must invest in real estate to get residence visa etc.Does anybody can explain that Moroccan society speak Arabic ,French and English all in places of daily requirement.

Casablanca is bloody expensive if you want to live here according to western standard and for certain things even more than London ( try to go to any supermarket and compare the costs of cosmetic products with London). The problem here is that whatever is standard in europe, here is considered luxury . To give you an example, go out and have a wood oven pizza in a nice restaurant is more expensive ( way more) than have the same quality pizza in London ( the price here was 190 mad which is 17 euros for a simple pizza). Obviously there are cheaper alternatives to live here but we are not making a like for like comparison with the european standards,

I think some are mistaken here, as wa talking about casablanca !!
Expensive for no reason, apart that its the hearbeat of moroccos economy. Comfortable with 1500 USD, thats logic. Living as domestic with 200USD, thats realistic !!
Tnx to #mad and #nawfal everything is said !!

To #Slaoui
