  1. Well, look, it was windy last night and now I have to clean the pool. Such problems.

  3. Probably this one: https://www.mi-rfc.com.mx/consulta-rfc-homoclave Note that this is not a Gov't site. It constructs an RFC from your CURP (which you don't enter), and explains how it's formed. Interesting thing here is that it successfully found my CURP from only name and DOB. Who the heck is www.mi-rfc.com.mx that they have such access? And, since INM is the only agency I've dealt with, SAT and INM would appear to share resident data. Mine's really new. I don't think they're bad actors, but again: who is mi-rfc.com.mx that they can look up a CURP assigned one week ago, in seconds? I keep telling "my" immigration lawyer that while I know she mostly deals with INM, and RFCs are SAT's domain, if she could Columbo-out the whole SAT thing it might be a new line of business for her expat hand-holding practice. Or an enhancement, if the rumors are true that INM will cooperate with SAT to assign RFCs to virgin residentes. I mean, it only makes sense. Her replies are very consistent. "You don't understand. These are two unrelated agencies, so it is impossible. Anyone who says this is lying." Well all-righty then, Señora Abogada. Whatevs. Unless I miss my guess -- and I well might -- it appears that a light-duty RFC is easy to get. If this is so, the question is what's such a number good for and not good for? And for what kinds of transactions do you need a more durable RFC? Let me send a message to the good folks at Two Expats Mexico and see if they can color this in yet (I'm a Patreon patron). LQ

  5. It appears to be more convoluted than that. Mexico - Tax ID Number (RFC) - Sayari Learn This link states that one of the options is the RFC begins with the first consonant and first vowel of the last name. That is consistent with my RFC which starts SABO, not SHBO. There are different options if a maternal name is used. A room full of bureaucrats must of spent weeks coming up with this.

  6. Well, I'm sure the OP is going to get wildly differing opinions, but my Mabe stove and fridge were not the higher end models and I had zero issues with them. Higher end models, regardless of the brand, often have more problems- the more bells and whistles, the more things that can go wrong. However, I would never go to Tio Sam's to buy an appliance. I always do comparison shopping and Tio Sam's prices have always been at least 10% higher than the exact same item sold elsewhere. Funny story- my neighbors had bought a new fancy fridge/freezer combo, with water and ice dispenser, think it was Whirlpool. One day she goes to get a glass of cold water and the lever won't move, it's jammed. She thinks, "Oh, great, we've only had it 2 months and it's already broken". On closer inspection, a giant toad had wedged itself up behind the lever.

  7. As my spouse likes to shout out the window every time we drive past TioSam's- "Mabe SUCKS!" Seriously, the worst washing machine and range I've ever owned and I bought the higher end models.

  10. You probably should heed your own advice: https://www.justfactsdaily.com/media-bias-fact-check-incompetent-or-dishonest Not surprised a rabid leftist like you missed the point I was making, namely the fascism inherent in the covid forced vaccination and masking and the separation out and discriminating against those who were smart enough to recognize long ago how problematic these so called vaccines that neither prevent getting nor spreading covid are. The Nazis started by requiring Jews to have passes (vaccine certificates) to live their daily lives and then progressed to the Holocaust. We have seen some people here express the sentiment the unvaccinated should be separated out, denied medical care, and helped to die. Australia actually did put them in camps for a time. The parallels between the two are obvious to anyone except an advocate of covid extremism like yourself. This new left of which is so alien to true liberalism is angry, full of hate and fascist to the core. You are an able representative of it here. I will thank you to stop repeating this false and distorted representation so it will not be necessary for me to get personal in calling you out on it again.

  13. anyone got an appointment? they are not available and then you have to enter a virtual line and they send you a token number that does not work and then you ask to resend and nothing happen..so far they are very close to get number too for the worst bureaucrats after the French ones.. Just went through a bunch of French ones and it is even worse.. Has anyone noticed as verything is now connected and blamed on COVID.. the long line, the lack of attention, the lack of answering the phones etc.. etc..and that is true worldwide... really sad..

  14. Mabe are a standard joke-which is maybe they will work maybe they won't. Some Mabe appliances I have used were good-some weren't but they are usually cheaper. I had a Mabe fridge that was a dud.

  15. Yes, Mexico loves paperwork, the more the better. I always thought it was funny that even as more and more of their govt. entities become computerized, they seem to still love to have voluminous stacks of paper on their desks - it's like a security blanket or they think it makes them look important. Not specific to Mexico, though. Many non-first world countries do this. Lot of petty potentates exercising their tiny bit of power.

  19. I've had exclusively Mabe appliances- stoves and fridges. They are good, in my experience. Both my first stove and fridge lasted 10 years with no problems whatsover. And the fridge still worked fine, but the seal was hard and brittle after 10 years and was not replaceable. I would have had to find an entire new fridge door new or in good condition. As I wanted a larger fridge anyway, I just bought a new one. In contrast, no local appliance repairmen worked on Samsung appliances- I had to track down a Samsung technician when my washing machine stopped working, by calling a Samsung dealer and getting the name of the technician they use.

  21. Many thanks to InChapala1 on page 2 of this thread. Link was great if you have your CURP (year of issue is on CURP), know your phone #, postal code, and Jalisco, etc. It verified the RFC I had but I hadn’t been sure it was correct after reading about all the bogus ones😂

  25. Bbva got in trouble years ago for not having rfc for all their clientes so they issued them.and i used that number for years .I used it for reimbursement with my insurrance.One day i received a message from sat to come and talk to them at the abastos locatiin. They wanted to check where i was getting my money from and thrn they entered me as receiving money fron the States . A few years ago when they had a new system or something was changed..the farmacies could not enter the rfc anymore .it showed as non valid so I went to sat and they got me new numbers for both of us and gave me a constancia ..Now I am changing the escritura on the hoyse.. I need a contanvia again, the notario told me to see if my acvountabt could show me how to do it on line.. so it must be possible to do it on line. Actually they have tutorial on how to do it on line.so.ill try that first

  27. NIcolas Telsa - What do you want from us? You have a personal problem with your fraccionamiento. We can't help you with that. Take it up with your neighbors who actually have a say in what goes on in your fraccionamiento.

  29. With respect Telsa if you wish to enjoy Mexico then you better think like a Mexican AND speak like a Mexican If you have adolescent children do they always listen and do what you say? Many times they have different/better ideas than you. Or if you stay fixated be prepared to have Bleeding Ulcers!!

  31. You all use left wing biased articles all the time. But your blinders are firmly on and that is ok for you to ignore other highly trained and experienced professional just because YOU label them right wing. Your mind is a closed echo chamber of left wing ideas unable to see anything else. And you insult me wow

  32. Gee, another right-winger posting an article from a right-biased source. Quel surprise. " Overall, we rate the Brownstone Institute Right Biased based on editorial positions that favor a conservative-libertarian perspective. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to a failed fact check and the promotion of misinformation regarding Covid-19." ( From mediabiasfactcheck.com)

"... occurring on the exact timeline predicted by a biosecurity simulation of a global Monkeypox outbreak a year prior—bears a striking resemblance to the outbreak of COVID-19 just months after Event 201, a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic almost exactly like COVID-19." https://brownstone.org/articles/monkeypox-was-a-table-top-simulation-only-last-year/

  37. This is just one of MANY instances of misinformation, retractions, lies or whatever you want to call them!!! The worse, worse it is (ie. larger numbers reported) the more $$$$$$$$$ and POWER. Thus hundreds of thousands got the Death notice or Diagnosis or hospitalizations reported, when they actually succumbed or had something else...FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!!!!!

  38. https://www.google.com.mx/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2020/09/30/us/politics/trump-coronavirus-misinformation.amp.htmlThe Coronavirus Pandemic "Study Finds ‘Single Largest Driver’ of Coronavirus Misinformation: Trump Cornell University researchers analyzing 38 million English-language articles about the pandemic found that President Trump was the largest driver of the “infodemic.” Share on Facebook Share on WhatsApp Post on Twitter Mail Image Mentions of President Trump made up nearly 38 percent of the overall online “misinformation conversation” about the virus, researchers said.Credit...Erin Schaff/The New York Times By Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Noah Weiland Published Sept. 30, 2020Updated Oct. 6, 2021 "WASHINGTON — Of the flood of misinformation, conspiracy theories and falsehoods seeding the internet on the coronavirus, one common thread stands out: President Trump. That is the conclusion of researchers at Cornell University who analyzed 38 million articles about the pandemic in English-language media around the world. Mentions of Mr. Trump made up nearly 38 percent of the overall “misinformation conversation,” making the president the largest driver of the “infodemic” — falsehoods involving the pandemic. The study, to be released Thursday, is the first comprehensive examination of coronavirus misinformation in traditional and online media. “The biggest surprise was that the president of the United States was the single largest driver of misinformation around Covid,” said Sarah Evanega, the director of the Cornell Alliance for Science and the study’s lead author. “That’s concerning in that there are real-world dire health implications.” ADVERTISEMENT The study identified 11 topics of misinformation, including various conspiracy theories, like one that emerged in January suggesting the pandemic was manufactured by Democrats to coincide with Mr. Trump’s impeachment trial, and another that purported to trace the initial outbreak in Wuhan, China, to people who ate bat soup. But by far the most prevalent topic of misinformation was “miracle cures,” including Mr. Trump’s promotion of anti-malarial drugs and disinfectants as potential treatments for Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. That accounted for more misinformation than the other 10 topics combined, the researchers reported. They found that of the more than 38 million articles published from Jan. 1 to May 26, more than 1.1 million — or slightly less than 3 percent — contained misinformation. They sought to identify and categorize falsehoods, and also tracked trends in reporting, including rises in coverage. For example, on April 24, a day after Mr. Trump floated — and was ridiculed for — the idea that disinfectants and ultraviolet light might treat Covid-19, there were more than 30,000 articles in the “miracle cures” category, up from fewer than 10,000 only days earlier. Mr. Trump drove those increases, the study found. ADVERTISEMENT To those who have been watching Mr. Trump’s statements, the idea that he is responsible for spreading or amplifying misinformation might not come as a huge shock. The president has also been feeding disinformation campaigns around the presidential election and mail-in voting that Russian actors have amplified — and his own government has tried to stop. But in interviews, the Cornell researchers said they expected to find more mentions of conspiracy theories, and not so many articles involving Mr. Trump."

  41. Go to https://wwwmat.sat.gob.mx/personas/tramites-del-rfc Go to last option on the page: Validación del RFC (RFC Validation) Then 2 options: 1. Select "Consulta tu clave de RFC mediante CURP" (Check your RFC key using CURP) or use this direct URL https://wwwmat.sat.gob.mx/aplicacion/operacion/31274/consulta-tu-clave-de-rfc-mediante-curp . Enter requested info, and it'll provide your RFC. 2. Or select "Verifica si estas registrado en el RFC" (Check if you are registered in the RFC). This option simply states whether you have an RFC #.

  42. I understand you are in a very difficult situation, and feeling frantic, but trying to guilt people out about adopting them is not the way to go about it. Not everyone wants, or can take on a dog, and some have their hands full with the dogs they already have. You just posted this less than 24 hours ago- maybe have a bit of patience. But I assume you realize that finding homes for 8 dogs asap is a pretty tall order.

  43. Would everyone like to welcome back "Eric Blair", "Clueless", or previous incarnations I might not be able to name. Personally, I would suggest to David that he let those who 1) know what actually happened recently, 2) are schooled in Mexican law, and 3) are the products of Mexican culture do their jobs without his interference. Chapala Haciendas got run through the wringer by the same attorney (F) who has been discussed on this board. They also hired the wrong firm to dig a well. Meanwhile, a global pandemic struck and we all know the disruptions this caused. They have recently hired a new, sharp, young abogado and a well educated contador who are working with the BOD to sort things out, recover some money if possible, and put us on the right track. The last thing our fracc needs is someone who is clueless- doesn't speak the language, doesn't understand the culture, is not a lawyer in Mexico, and who can't hear well enough to have heard jack squat at the AGM- mucking about and acting the know-it-all. I might add, fracc business should remain fracc business and not be thrown to the wind to see who reads it.
