Pescadero Community - The Community of Pescadero is in need of solutions to many of the situations related to Environment, Culture and Social Development, Commerce and Tourism, Health, Public Work and Safety.

Discussion About Netzer / Santander Bank - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Warning: In this letter, one of the readers inquired about a company called "Netzer" who has been sending letters to Americans with fideicamisos that are held by Santander Bank. The letter states that Netzer represents the bank in the U.S., that one's [fideicamiso] fees are in arrears, sometimes in the thousands of dollars, and instructs the recipient to send these supposedly "past due" fedeicamiso fees directly to Netzer at a U.S. address.

We went online and found out that Netzer has no business standing or legal filing in the U.S. Further, we traced the address to an office building and called the building's owner. They said they had never heard of Netzer but rented temporary offices by the month and someone probably used one for that purpose.

It is obvious that this company, and it's demand letters, is a sham and a fraud; they have obviously gotten into Santander Bank's fideicamiso files since they had our name, address and fideicamiso number. Whether someone in the bank in Los Barriles or La Paz is feeding them this information remains to be seen but anyone receiving a letter from Netzer should immediately turn it over to Santander Bank.

July 6: Need Ride From Cabo Airport To Todos Santos - I am arriving at the airport July 6 at 11:30 a.m. with some luggage and need a ride to Todos Santos. Will share expenses. - Thomas Garland, garlandtag [-a t-] gmail.com

Back to the States July 10 - Heading back to the States (as far as San Francisco if that's your destination too) on July 10 and would love to not be doing it solo. You could help with driving or just rest easy as co-pilot, either one is fine so long as a little gas cash gets chipped in. Folk/funk/rock/reggae ... whatever, it's all good as long as it keeps the good driving energy going. My girlfriend is heading straight home from the Galapagos, while I have the fun luck of returning to La Paz and getting our car and things back up to California. Let's take on this drive together! - gabriel.holt (at) gmail.com, Baja California Sur

North Then South After August 15 - I am flexible, will be heading North sometime around the middle to end of August with a F350 4 door truck and possibly with a large dual axle 23 foot enclosed trailer, or a small open 8 foot trailer. I can haul things and people both directions. Will be heading to San Diego, possibly LA and southern UT. And returning to baja in September. Have made the trip about 30 times. - Dean Devolpi, dean [-a t-] la-ventana.com, 612-114-0202, La Paz

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

Adorable Kittens Seek Loving Home(s) - We were abandoned before our eyes were open (around 10 days) and a big brown dog found us. She is our rescue dog and her owner has given us a foster home to raise us up to be charming kittens. He spends lots of time with us and we love all the affection and give it right back. We are about 8 weeks old now and ready for our permanent homes! We are litter trained. We've had our first check-up at the vets and he proclaimed us healthy and ready for adoption. Won't you please adopt me or one of my sisters? Give Jaime a call or write Deborah an email if you’d like to meet us! That would be purrrrrrrrrrrfectly wonderful! - Jaime Wood, deborahhorn [-a t-] hotmail.com, 612-132-8893, Todos Santos

5 Puppies Need 5 Homes - I found 5 black puppies dumped alongside a deserted dirt road, outside of Pescadero. All 5 needs a good home, and TLC. Please adopt one, or two, if you can. I can't keep them. Thank you. Please call 612-140-7923. - Mary donegalmoon [-a t-] gmail.com, Pescadero

Dog Urgently Needs Your Help. - A good-tempered, sweet dog needs temporary immediate assistance and adoption. Present needs: A contained enclosure to manage shampoo bath every 3 days for 2 weeks, Flea/tick preventive med application, renew rabies shot. She has had care for over a year to bring her to good health but she can no longer remain on our commercial property. If no one steps forward to assistance by June 30, I have no choice but the unspeakable. - Lady, macnmoli [-a t-] yahoo.com, 612-118-3423, Pescadero

Three Dog Surprise Delivery -Three gorgeous puppies were dropped off at my house and there's no way I can keep them all.

The pups may be Australian Shepherd mix, though the biggest one (black & white in color) has fur more like a lab.

For more information, call me at 612-145-0250 or write me. - Angelique BajaKitties [-a t-] Yahoo.com

Lost Dog Seen At La Posa - A small white/cream-colored dog was seen running and hiding in the tall rushes at the north end of La Posa lagoon. It is similar to a poodle, with long floppy ears, wearing a pink and black dog-dress. Do you know of anyone who dresses their dog like that? Thanks - Serena S, brentserena [-a t-] gmail.com, 612-132-8913

Take Me! - I have a female dachshund with all her shots and I have her paper work. I really love her but I am having a baby this month; I can't take the risk of tripping over her and hurting my baby. Please, if you know of anybody who wants her, let me know. Thank you. - Taylor Daniels, taylor210210 [-a t-] hotmail.com, 612-104-8209

Beautiful Dog Needs Home - We fostered a female dog named Onyx since she was 8 weeks old. She has been at a trainer for 3 weeks. She has a lot of energy and really needs a lot of property to run on. She has been fixed, has all her shots, weighs 45 lbs. and is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, we couldn't foster her any more and she is at the Los Cabos Humane Society. You can contact Everesto at the shelter for more information. - Everesto, evaristoah [-a t-] hotmail.com, www.loscaboshumanesociety.com, 624-129-8346, Cabo San Lucas

Found Puppy - Monday, June 13: Female puppy approx. 4-8 weeks old in Pescadero/Los Cerritos. Black with tan boots and eyebrows. - Kelly Cline-sniechowski, kelbil2002 [-a t-] yahoo.com, 624- 118-1603, Pescadero

"Good Dog" Needs A Ride Home To Rosarito From Guerrero Negro - Hola, It is a long story on how our dog (Einstein, he was named that from the shelter/rescue group) is still in Guerrero Negro after our car broke down 60 miles north of there almost four weeks ago. Actually, the story has a way in which the 'universe' can show a sense of humor on what one plans to do. LOL anyway - the car is still not fixed, however, it was towed to Rosarito and we are looking for the right and perfect motor (Subaru 2.5 liter engine) - if you know of one, please let me know.

The question is: do you know anyone going north (Rosarito) from Baja Sur that can stop in Guerrero Negro and give our dog ' a ride home?' He's good natured, calm, and mostly obeys simple commands. He weighs about 65 pounds and will stay "in the back" when you tell him "stay" - If you can 'bring him home' - we would gladly help out on your gas expenses. All he needs is a couple of times to go for a short walk to do his normal body functions. He will have his food and water bowls along with his bed - and, he is an experienced traveler. - Richard Herndon, richardofbaja [-a t-] yahoo.com
