Todos Santos Red Cross In Need - We are so fortunate to have a well run and dedicated volunteer Red Cross team here in Todos Santos to make emergency runs to the hospital with a trained paramedic and Dra. Oliva as our local director! Our two ambulances require maintenance and with the many expenses to run such an operation we need to reach out to the community. Dra. Oliva can't make ends meet alone selling tamales at the fiestas, so we need your help. There will be organized fund drives in the future, but right now we have an ambulance to keep serviced. Tax deductible donations can be made directly to Dra. Oliva at her consultorio at Degollado 52 across from Carnitas Barrajas, or you can contact her directly at work at 612-145-0201. You never know when you or a loved one might need this life saving service. - Oscar And Tori-red Cross Board Members, oscarntori [ -at- ] yahoo.com, 612-145-0201, Todos Santos


Beware Local Money Scam (Courtesy, Baja Pony Express) - Dear Cheryl, I don't know whether this would be of interest but I nearly got caught up in a scam. This is what basically happened. We got a phone call Saturday from the States which my wife answered. The person phoning said that he was my nephew and he wanted to visit us and she then answered no problem. Steven is a nephew I have not seen for 25 yrs. She then put him onto me and he said he was Steven and not suspecting anything I said great come down. He then phoned back and organized his ticket while talking to me for Sunday supposed arrival time at 11:45am.

Sunday morning I get a call at 9 am and he says he is at San Jose airport and when I questioned to him as to why he was early he claimed he got an earlier flight but that he had a major problem in that he had brought in $27,000US and they had arrested him as he was only allowed $10000 and had confiscated the money and could I speak to the Custom Officer who then came on the phone speaking with a very similar accent to Steven. This person then gives me a long story about him committing a very serious crime and that another agency had taken the money and that they had Steven locked up in a high security area and that I would not be able to enter and talk to any of the authorities unless a fine of $15690 pesos was paid [as I had asked to have a meeting with the Customs and Steven] and that I must answer some questions to prove Steven is telling the truth questions like his fathers, brother and sisters names, etc. I answered them and was told to go and pay the fine as they were happy he was telling the truth. I told them to take the money out of the $27000 and was told that was not possible as that was in the hands of the other agency and that I must pay this fine into a bank like Bancomer but I said that's not possible as it is Sunday and he said no problem I can pay it at Walmart or Elektra.

Now I was suspicious and asked for the government agency and account number. In the meantime I asked for Steven's flight # and airline as no flights from Dallas come in first thing in the morning and was told to mind my own business as they don't have to give that info and the guy was now getting aggressive. I insisted on him giving me the Walmart account name and #, he then gives me a persons name and a number and says I must give him my bank account details as they have to release the money to an account as I cannot give it in cash. I refused and put the phone down. I must have had another 20 calls which I did not answer and to this date have had no further calls.

The whole thing was a scam to get me to pay the $15690 pesos and get my bank details If anybody phones you claiming to be a relative or to have arrested a relative don't give them a name or any information regarding your family as they immediately use that and if they phone you using a USA cell phone not a local line be suspicious I think they got my information off of FACEBOOK as FACEBOOK notified me of a suspicious site when checking it, it was a USA site I know this is a bit long winded but it went on for some time so if it is of interest please just put in what you think is relative Thanks Jimmy Smith. - (Jimmy.....yes, I think it's very interesting and thank you for telling us. I thought these things only happened to "other" people! Cheryl)
-------------------------
I am writing to let you know that a scammer tried a similar scam on us last month. I have my rentals advertised online at http://www.casabaja.com and a potential guest called to say he was interested in reserving our home in September, I let him know the dates were open but he never confirmed or sent a deposit. Then last month Angelita called to say the guest had said he was in Cabo airport and tried to collect $20,000 pesos from her with the same story about bringing too much cash into Los Cabos airport and that he needed money to pay the fine. She caught on right away when she noticed the phone number was not a Cabo number, and told him she could not help him "good bye". Same line about brining in too much money and such, all of the info he was using to contact us was from our vacation rentals website, though he could have found us on VRBO or Facebook first, it was not a VRBO generated inquiry. This is the second scam in 20 years we have encountered of this nature, the first one was through VRBO and I reported it to them, it does happen to regular people scammers are out there in force! Be Careful. Lisa Jayne.
