  1. Both offices first mentioned are closed, best is Plaza Bonita Av. Mexico, you walk out same day, I can get appointments for new or renewals in 1-3 days
  2. Bearer "Al portador" $5,000 pesos, no limits on checks made out to you but they can dishonor them if they are more than 2 weeks old or even if part is ripped, mutilited, etc.
  3. Lorenza is an old pro and very capable, Ana Siller is also court approved and newer so her rates may be lower.
  4. I have a kayak I can rent, Im a block from the lake too.
  5. There are two sites, the one mentioned for the state cedula as well as the SEP federal cedula site here https://www.cedulaprofesional.sep.gob.mx/cedula/presidencia/indexAvanzada.action but their search engine is lacking and an easier one is at https://www.buholegal.com/consultasep/
  6. Go to the ferreteria, buy a crowbar and then go home and use it to pry your wallet open and spend $300US of your millions to buy a newer computer. Now that will be one less thing to troll about, I mean ask about on web forums.
  7. Buro is the credit bureau and probably making you pay to check your credit and do a background check on you to make sure income is real and you are not a deadbeat
  8. Lots and lots of scam artists. NEVER lend anyone money. Never, nope doesn´t matter if they have a great business idea, 99.9% of the people get scammed and never paid. You may be different and if not naive and you have some gift or ESP then day trading will still be more profitable.
  9. Seeing as how the new train in Guadalajara has been in process for years now, and messed up much of the city and still isn´t complete, chances are it will not happen or be a real mess. File under Disneyland, and other large dreams politicians have that never come to fruition as these guys spew BS but never have had to work a real job or run a business.
  10. Hi, I had my AMIB certification. I doubt 99% of people working at banks have degrees (only 4% of people that start university finish), some have college but few actually have their aegree or cedula. Most banks do not enforce or require their employees to have AMIB certifications which is the Mexican Association of Financial Intermediaries (it was named that when I got my certification as Mortgage Consultant). Few people go to jail here in Mexico due to mistakes made by the authorities or due to laziness or corruption so when lots of money is at stake, nobody is your friend.

    Perry's Pizza

    Ate there Saturday night. Pizza wasnt what it used to be. Service is great, I wanted Johnny Walker whiskey and they were ready to run down the street and buy a bottle but it was pouring so I said pop is fine.
  12. Hi Spencer,

    I am a permanent resident of Mexico and lost the top half of the FMM card I filled out upon flying out last week. Will be flying home to Ajijic on Jun 26 and wonder what I need to do to ensure I retain my permant residency status

  13. In Chapala we have no problems getting travel letters so you can take care of business and not be stuck here
  14. Nobody here admits anything and the order of the day is lie, lie, lie. Too many people want to believe in high returns and low risk and that the people promoting these "investments" while having no professional licensing or training. These people also never put anything in writing. People don't want to feel racist or bad for not trusting someone from another culture so many are naive or feel guilty for asking legitimate questions. I have a lady who was scammed when buying a condo on the beach. Instead of hiring an attorney she brought a "friend" who then told her that for the trust she needed to list a Mexican under the beneficiary section. As he was the only one there that she had to list him (thereby making this "friend" the heir and not her family if the 82 year old spring chicken dropped dead soon). As if the lesson wasn't learned now she is selling the unit and another bank employee (one of these brokerage houses that we have in Ajijic) wanted to earn the commission on the trust so conspired with a notary to draw up a contract not in her interest, told her no problem when verbal and other agreements would be ok even if not included. Deposit was only $2,000 US for a $200,000USD property. Also in the end they said the buyer needed more time to check out the property and to sign the deed and he would pay later even though the lady was asked to sign over the deed and all rights to the property. This was at recommendation of a large Marge type of older lady new "attorney" who helps expats (probably only to lose life savings). Oh and even though she qualified for the capital gains exemption she had to pay $25,000US even though all other calculations were $15,000USD less if there was capital gains. (This is new expat scam where notaries quote high capital gains and then after closing lower them and pocket the money). To have a clear conscience I wrote a scathing email to the client "I highly advise against it as I feel you are being taken advantage of, at the minimum there should do a reserva de dominio and stiff penalties for non payment as that would put a lien on the property until you are paid and to guarantee you are paid. They dont need the original deeds, I dont have them, you do. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL I THINK THEY ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOU AND YOU SHOULD NOT TRUST ANYBODY. THEY ARE DEVIATING FROM STANDARD PRACTICES AND THERE IS LITTLE REDRESS NOR JUSTICE HERE. REMEMBER IT IS VERY EASY TO LOSE YOUR MONEY OR HAVE THEM MAKE EXCUSES NOT TO PAY IN THE FUTURE AND THEN YOU HAVE SIGNED THE DEED AND GIVEN THEM POSSESSION. PLEASE RETHINK. DANGER WILL ROBINSON!" While not victim blaming so many people have so much pressure on them to to bad deals and few come from a place where you must always watch your back or that you have little to no recourse. Another local bank stalled my client's niece to get money from the account to pay hospital while alerting the worker put on the account who could take out money for emergencies who then looted 2,000,000 pesos from the account not even paying a peso of the bills. We filed criminal charges and the bad guy was represented by someone working in city hall during the last administration, the ministerio publico would see me and run out to the garden and hide in the bushes to avoid the issue. He was fat so couldnt hide that well. Sadly, YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS when money is involved.
