    New level

    I just transferred most of my money out of my Philippines account back to the USA because the Philippines is equally corrupt and untrustworthy. Especially now with that lunatic Dut_turdtay running his scam virus against his own people and shutting everything down, including most banks. Last time banks failed here in the P. I. It took some account holders months and months to get their supposedly gov. Insured money back. Some still have not got it. Banks cannot be trusted, bottom line.
    I have seen corruption but this is a new level for me. I mean is everyone sleeping nobody catches these people.

    Oaxaca Quarantine

    I can almost bet you with 99% assurance you won't be better off anyplace else right now.
    I have lived in Oax for the last 19 years. Stay cool for now. At this time there is no better place to be. Give it a year, and if you have a bit of $, you should be able to get a very nice place cheaply.

    Not Surprising.

Monex, with $5. 2 billion in assets and operations in the USA, was woven into the lives of Machir and the 10,000 other Americans who've moved to San Miguel de Allende.

    The transfer didn't happen. Juan didn't show, Zavala didn't return calls, and Kathy and Jim Machir discovered that their nest egg was gone. When the Machirs and other San Miguel expatriates met with Monex officials in early January, the bankers told some of them that about $40 million was missing from as many as 158 accounts, many belonging to English-speaking Americans. A dozen people interviewed by Bloomberg News say that bank statements Zavala sent them purporting to show full accounts were apparently falsified. Most say the bank has told them little since they filed complaints, and some say Monex tried to settle for far less than the balances owed. When they told us we had 6 pesos or 32 in our accounts, I just felt sick to my stomach, Kathy Machir says. Since then, they have not dealt with us in good faith.

    3 weeks ago I said 'hasta la vista' to the US, left SF and am now in Oaxaca.

    I mostly work from home. I have a neat small apartment here, and mostly go out for walks and to restaurants, however, daily I notice that more and more restaurants are closing.

    I've romanticized about getting a green, off-grid kind of home, somewhere safe, where I am independent, self-sustaining and control my own power, water, and food, through solar, water on the land, and a growing food.

    I know, not the best time to be looking for a place, with all the restaurants closing, kinda feel I got to make a move.

    Been debating where to go, as a single, 49 year old guy.

    I contacted someone in Puerto Vallarta. She said the beaches were closed and seemed other places were too, like here. Looking elsewhere.

    I'm open to other areas, even countries, just want to be away from 5 G towers. I'm seeing that many borders in LatAm and other counties are closed to foreigners.

    Anyone have any ideas where to go, either here in Mexico, or elsewhere that has open borders?

    If that turns out to be the case, we have a generation of depression to look forward to.

    My two cents is simply to stay put for the next 30-60 days. I live in Puerto Vallarta and, yes, the beaches are closed and most everybody is in lockdown until the end of May.

    Even though you screwed the pooch as far as timing goes, just relax and chill until things get back to more normal.

    However, it is my personal opinion that things will not "get back to the old normal" until AFTER there's a vaccine.

    I strongly suggest staying put until things start opening up. Many people have gotten stuck or stranding doing this.

    Age of Consent vs Age of Majority

    =============================================

    Greetings Gentlemen,

    The Age of Consent is the age in which girls can participate in consensual, non-commercial sex with their teen-age boyfriend without said teen-age boyfriend being charged with statutory rape.

    However, the Age of Consent is irrelevant to the members of this forum.

    What you need to focus on is the Age of Majority, which among other things is the age in which they can vote, get married, enlist in the military, and participate in commercial sex activities.

    Please exercise caution and govern yourself accordingly.

    Thanks,

    Jackson

    Americans' Life Savings Disappear From Mexican Bank Accounts.

    In late December, Kathy Machir called Marcela Zavala Taylor, her banker of nine years at Mexico's Monex Casa de Bolsa, to get cash for contractors building her retirement home in San Miguel de Allende. Typically, Zavala would wire money or dispatch her assistant, Juan, on his motorcycle with an envelope full of pesos. Monex, with $5. 2 billion in assets and operations in the USA, was woven into the lives of Machir and the 10,000 other Americans who've moved to San Miguel de Allende.

    The transfer didn't happen. Juan didn't show, Zavala didn't return calls, and Kathy and Jim Machir discovered that their nest egg was gone. When the Machirs and other San Miguel expatriates met with Monex officials in early January, the bankers told some of them that about $40 million was missing from as many as 158 accounts, many belonging to English-speaking Americans. A dozen people interviewed by Bloomberg News say that bank statements Zavala sent them purporting to show full accounts were apparently falsified. Most say the bank has told them little since they filed complaints, and some say Monex tried to settle for far less than the balances owed. When they told us we had 6 pesos or 32 ¢ in our accounts, I just felt sick to my stomach, Kathy Machir says. Since then, they have not dealt with us in good faith.

    . . A notarized letter that Karger's attorney sent to top Monex executives on April 15 lists 12 allegations of fraud, including transferring money to people whom the depositors didn't know, making unauthorized investments, and changing account login information. If a relatively low-level employee can go into your account, change your email address for notifications, change your password, redirect deposits, withdrawals, and wire transfers, Karger says, then you have a kindergarten-level security system safeguarding tens of millions of dollars.

    $1,553 and $2,588 last time I checked, and they will also accept assets in lieu of income: $25,880 for the four year and $105,523 for the permanent.

    Retirement

    Mexico also offers easy residence for North Americans—if it didn't, how could the nearly one million USA Citizens who live there do it? With a visitor permit, you can spend nearly six months in the country: plenty of time to suss out great retirement spots like Tulúm and San Miguel de Allende. If you want to stay longer, Mexico's residence visas are extremely popular and straight-forward.

    "You can get a temporary resident visa that's valid for up to four years," says IL Mexico Editor Glynna Prentice. "And you only need to show a monthly income of about $1,300.

    "But the real winner is Mexico's permanent visa. You have to show a slightly higher income—about $2,100 a month. But you can get a permanent visa right from the get-go—you don't need a temporary visa first. It's a one-time application process, and the visa is valid indefinitely. And with either residence visa, those aged 60 or over can get a pensioner's card and qualify for discounts from 5% to 50% on a whole range of goods and services. ".
