    The story comes out the same if you replace the AirBnb with hotel. There is nothing to gain by replacing hotel with Airbnb. I am guessing the point is if the girl is not part of it, a clarification will be helpful to the girl. I know Otee's posting as it happened and the presumed facts can change once more evidences are known.

    I don't know why you guys are approaching girls when you already think they are too young. You will get noticed.

    Put a fork in it

    Over tourism, with an influx of newbie mongers, is clearly one of the main sources of this problem, but it is clearly having impacts on Medellin beyond mongering in general. For example, the guys selling soccer jerseys and other random stuff were more aggressive than they were even just a few months ago in July. They seemed to be offended that I did not want to buy their stuff, as if they were somehow entitled to a sale. Even the guys selling soda from carts in Centro asked for tips for selling me soda during my street meat runs and seemed offended when I disregarded their requests. This does not sound like the Medellin that I came to know and love; it is now more like over touristed places, such as Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.
    Over-aggressive and abundant hawkers are a visible and powerful street-level indicator of what is also happening in a private sex transactions. It looks like Medellin is at the tipping point- and as you say as soon as the prices are quoted in USD, that's a wrap.

    This summer I saw multiple gringo's paying for jerseys / trinkets and in restaurants with USD. If you are so f-ing lazy that you can't be bothered to change your currency, then just stay home dude.

    Looks to me like the scene is cooked and any competitive advantage it might've had is now gone. As I've noted before, this is not exactly an easy scene to begin with. In LATAM, I much prefer Brazil and don't mind the higher cost of getting there. Keeps the riff-raff out.

    Shake downs like this are common, often most by cops in vice, as security and police are often not required to show badges and the oversight is non existent, it is hard to identify non cops.

    Usually the bait is either a GF of or partner in the scam, and usually its a turf thing, scammers from another area wouldn't dare enter some else's turf.

    I am glad that you are safe and got out with minimal losses.

    What is your advice to avoid such a scam in Colombia?
    Asking advice from those unqualified to give it, is like following a 10 dollar bill attached to fishing line into a dark alley LOL.

    I like the old saying " When in Rome, do as the Romans do". Some people don't understand what this means.

    These folks have no business travelling internationally and if they do are subject to the natural laws of predator v. S. Prey. Lolol.

    These two posts made me LOL. I'm definitely observing many of the same things as you are.

    - General price inflation, including chica price inflation, if Davivienda ATMs now allowing 2 million COP withdrawals are any indication. Normal FB price seems to be 200 k + taxi now, with a few accepting lower.

    - Repeats from prior trips are often not worth it. So far I met with 3 from my prior trip. 2 got fatter, 2 of them became more hardcore / mercenary / gave worse service, all of them wanted more money than before. See attached screenshots.

    - Girls appear to be looking for different offers at the same time while negotiating with you. Ex: you give them the price, and they disappear for a few minutes before accepting your offer.

    - Please keep the FB scene an open secret and don't tell random dudes about FB. Keep the ones who don't do their homework on Tinder, clubs, SA.

    - Once a girl has been in the scene for some time and is above average looking, watch her price go up and service go down.

I know for a fact there are civilians, claiming to be policemen, looking for gringos to shake down. I had two encounters with them. I didn't go along with their scheme, but neither had a gun. When Osteoknot returns to Medellin, I wish he would go to the police station and ask if they know the "investigator".

    As for Villainy's statement "The reception didn't call the cops that isn't remotely possible. " How does he know that? Does he think there are no hotel employees who work with scammers?
    The first part is certainly a possibility. Although I'm sure if you look hard enough you could find a Colombian cop who could be convinced to accept a bribe.

    With the final part, Villainy has been living there for a year or more. If anyone knows about that location, it's probably him.

    Tinder Prepagos

    Does someone have experience with finding Freelancer in Medellin through Tinder? I read here a lot about Facebook, but not about using Tinder for that.

    Is this also a possible way for Hunting? Please share your experience. Because I'm not so into facebook and I'm thinking about tinder Gold for Hunting there, but I don't know if this brings success in Medellin.

    This early October trip to Medellin was my sixth visit to that city, and it might be my last one for a while. The unfavorable changes to the Medellin Facebook scene in the past year, including price inflation, a high rate of cita flakery, and a decrease in certain aspects of the quality of service, have made it a less attractive and competitive destination. I tried a new approach after similar results on my last trip in July and decided to give Medellin a second chance, but it only succeeded in partially mitigating this deteriorating situation..
    Hmmm I've been saying that since after 1999 when I was the only gringo in town, except maybe the Tall man maybe, Lol.

    Times change though, either roll with it or move on I guess.

    I'll always enjoy Medellin, though it's far from my favorite place anymore.

    Colombia or anywhere; have your fun and enjoy, but be smart, low key, not the center of attention, most especially when breaking the rules a bit (drugs, etc).

    Common sense really.

    Under the Radar? A life of quiet desperation? Never!

    That is not me and never will be. Maybe those turn out to be my famous last words, jajajaja. I truly do not fear death and if I accept that as the ultimate outcome then most of the time I can live with the results of my actions without any regrets. That is not the same as a Death Wish, far from it. I love life and I love my life and I love living it. My epithet will say on my tombstone, "If I die tomorrow I die a happy man. " I am 100% serious about that.

    I don't want anyone to be like me and I certainly don't want to be like anyone else. I'm just documenting a journey and some people seem to benefit a little from my experiences even if they only glean examples about what not to do. And I will continue to post even it's just for the amusement and entertainment factor which many people have told me they enjoy. And wait a minute, could it be possible that a few people might actually join ISG because of my posts? That's a stretch but you never know, that's what I've Been Told.

    I also find it amusing that I am sometimes found suspect because of my writing ability. Me can dumb it down and write stupider for people if that makes them calmer, jaja. I do not sit around and do rewrites and carefully choose my words and craft a grammatically perfect post. I'm used to having a professional editor for that and I don't have the patience.

    My celebrity sister who has written two New York Times Best Sellers with a third one on the way tells me I'm the best writer in the family. She's being sweet and gracious because she has the books on the Shelf, not me. I have four or five books more than half completed but I have Fear of Completion Syndrome. I'd rather start a new one then finish an old one, jajajja.

    So yeah I can turn a phrase and that gives another Target for people to focus on when it taps into their insecurities. I'm used to me, I've been around me for a long time now, a lot of people they never seen anyone like me. I'm a unique and special individual, just like everyone else, jajajaja.

    The normal and judicious thing to do would be to walk away from the situation about which I most recently posted. God knows I have enough hawt girls to keep me occupied. Right now I'm taking a little break in the United States. But I know me. I will probably seek out that little hot Vinny chica again. Really, I have a pass now because I know she's nineteen, and I happen to believe Jorge (obviously not his real name) as the principal investigator that I'm not going to suffer double indemnity. He heads a child pronography task force out of Bogota. He really is a cop. I saw his Police Academy photos, and photos of him in uniform at his graduation standing with his mom, etc. , etc.

    The guys here go off and all kinds of amusing tangents again everyone needs to solve for it in their own head. That's what brains do, they hate open Loops. But I'm the one living it and don't confuse my somewhat wild and Reckless Behavior (I call it fun) with an inability to perceive the situation.

    Life is good here in the states too. I've been retired since 2019 at a relatively young age. I'm getting ready to head to Myrtle Beach and Folly Beach on the same trip in my fully restored and heavily modified (read as, fast as fuck) 1995.

    300 ZX Twin Turbo with a very hot woman who also happens to be my ex-wife. We still get along great in fact we're better friends now than we were when we were married. I also just bought two VIP backstage passes for a show that features Vanilla Ice as the lead performer at a Pride Festival to celebrate my birthday. That should be a hoot. I don't think anyone parties harder than drag queens in their full regalia. I hope we get a couple of homophobic anti-gay Posts here in response to that so I can add a couple more numbnuts to my always expanding Ignore List.

    I don't do any drugs in the USA, maybe an occasional beer, I'm kind of a health nut believe it or not. I returned to the United States in better physical and mental condition than when I left. I don't Advocate a life of drug use but people have no clue when they're talking about Tussy if they are not speaking from personal experience. Properly made, and mine is custom made, it's a performance enhancer. Sure I do too much sometimes, you can overdose on any drug.

    An interesting point worth mentioning is when I got busted and lost my drugs I did not even miss it and did not even occur to me that I was without drugs until a few days later I was visiting a friend and he brought it up he asked me if I wanted some and honest to God that was the first time the thought crossed my mind I was without Tussy. That pretty much proves I do not have an addiction or even a dependence on it. I took a half a gram from him and before I left town I returned it to him unused.

    You can lump all recreational drug use into one big pile or you can have a Discerning mind and realize that there's a wave coming in the future of performance-enhancing drugs just as in the same way a lot of you right now are taking antidepressants or mood stabilizers to improve deficits. But in the near future, pharmaceutical companies will be selling drugs as mental and intellectual performance enhancers to people without any perceived mental health or physical diagnosis.

    And on that note, Ostee Out, and Keep On Keepin' On! Good Morning! Wow, that turned out to be long so probably will not get read but I just dictated on the Fly before getting out of bed this morning.

    Random gratuitous photo includes my mattress in my front yard as I am deep in my mildew abatement project in my master bedroom. Happened while I was away. Never had this problem before but my neighbor told me they had a days of torrential downpour and I'm sure being the low spot of my house my bedroom got hit with high humidity levels, obviously. I will probably have some pros come in at the end to do the final mold Annihilation with their fancy machines but I can do the clothes, shoes, bed and floors before then and save a few pennies. Gives me something to do with a true sense of accomplishment when done. I'll see if I can find a few good photos of my z32 car and ex-wife. My photo files all got jacked when I temporarily deleted everything and moved it to the cloud for my recent passage through immigration. I will PayPal someone a dollar if they can tell me where she is standing in that J. Lo pink short jumper and I'll even give you a huge hint, somewhere in New York City.

    Good luck, you seem like a good guy at heart.
    Agreed! I love reading Ostee's post but he is the opposite of keeping a low profile. There is a parade of girls going through his rooms, and drugs. I'm sure he was targeted and extorted.

    He asked me how much would I pay and I said three million but he told me that wasn't enough. Then I started to sense that I had a little negotiating power because he seems a little bit nervous about getting caught.

    Thinking back I think the guy really does Jen really want to keep me as a contact in case he can get more money from me and believe it or not he likes having a gringo as a friend. I don't think he's planning on extorting me ever again but if I ever need him officially for help of course is going to cost me. And I do not mind that arrangement one bit..
    Sorry you went through this man. Thanks for being honest about being extorted by the cops due to your carelessness and complacency. Most guys would be too embarrassed to say anything. You can only tempt the devil so many times without getting caught! And dude WTF is wrong with you? Did your balls drop! You really think he's your "friend" after stealing from you like a punk *****? If you truly believe that he's your friend and you have "police" protection / extortion you are delusional.

    We all need to be more diligent and cautious. Based on what I read you gents need to be more selective! Interview interview interview. Only if you vibe with the chica and there's mutual chemistry do you take her back to your place. Watch her like a hawk! Only after a few sessions and trust is established can you let your guard down. Worst case going a few nights without getting laid won't kill you. Or, you can go to a casa or strip club.

    Me personally, I have never done neither because I enjoy the hunt just like anyone else. But I'm selective and bang less girls in a month then most of you in a week or a day! LOL. You hardcore "seasoned" mongers can keep your el centro while my pussy ass will stay where I'm familiar amongst people I know. Safety is always more important than pussy. This ain't USA or Europe. This is Colombia, la jungla baby!

    And if this helps anyone else connected dots better than me he's not from Eddie and he's based in Bogota and he says he's part of a child pornography task force.
    Sorry you went through this man. Thanks for putting yourself out there and admitting to all of us that you got trapped in a extortion scam due to your carelessness and complacency. Most guys wouldn't put themselves out there like this because of the backlash.

    We can only tempt fate so many times before getting caught. And honestly this should be a warning for all of us to be more diligent and cautious in medallo.

    Based on what everyone talks and posts about on here. You all need to be more selective. Interview interview interview. Only if you vibe with the Chica should you take her back for a spin. If there's no chemistry DO NOT take her back. Spending a few nights without a Chica won't kill you. And watch her like a hawk! Only after 2-3 times when trusts is established do you let your guard down with that Chica. This ain't Europe or the US. It's Colombia the jungle baby!

    Or casas or strip clubs are options. Me like others I like to hunt. I've actually never been to a casa or strip club I'm Colombia. But I definitely keep low key and don't lease around central. All you "seasoned mongers" can have el centro. My pussy ass will stay with what I know and where it's safe amongst people I trust. I get way less action than most on this board but also much less headache.

    I read the posts, I look at the photo's.

    Very much is real, very believable, yet some things don't make sense, maybe true, maybe not, almost like a hybrid of fiction and reality, the hallmarks of good fiction, or maybe not. LOL.

    I mentioned in the original post, I tried the *611# method and the Mi Claro app. Neither works. 611 just comes back with a text message saying there's a problem blah blah blah. Mi Claro doesn't even let me create an account unless I have a home phone number (that's different from the prepaid cell number).

    I had a chica try her cedula today using the *611# method. I didn't know exactly all the menus she was going through. I started her on the menu where you can pick what document you want to use. After going through all the prompts she couldn't get it to register. Funny thing is one of the "you will be blocked" messages I get from Claro says to hit *611# Option 7-1-1 to register. But there is no option 7.

    Also tried a random 9 digit number in case something's wrong with my passport. No luck there as well.

    https://www.claro.com.co/personas/se...registra-imei/ under the prepaid lines tab. These instructions don't work either. *233# doesn't give me a menu where I can select option 2 as instructed.

    That's the state of Colombian computer systems. Ugh.
