Re: Discussion About Nezter / Santander Bank - As a follow up to the question about the legitimacy of the company, Nezter, representing Santander Bank and others, we received a copy of an letter sent to Cheryl of the Baja Pony Express from Rocio Villegas of Nezter:

My name is Rocio Villegas and I’m the Nezter’s Supervisor. We received a note today from one of our clients, that was published by you in the website www.bajaponyexpress.com in regards our company. We are concerned about the content of your publication and we are willing to make anything possible to gain all the Baja Pony Express’ readers attention and confidence.

We are not a fraud or a scheme. We are a company that goes back more than 40 years of providing legal assistance to investors in Mexico, reason why we have been hired by the Fiduciary Trustee Division of several Banks in Mexico, as HSBC, MONEX, BANORTE, and recently SANTANDER to manage their Trust Portfolios and provide a better service to their trustees. We have more than 6,500 US clients which say something about our reputation and credit.

Right now our website www.nezter.com is under construction but in a shortly future you may visit it and know more about our company and the many services we offer for our clients in regards their Mexican properties.

We understand the importance of the Baja Pony express’ website, and we take these publications very serious. It is very important to us to make sure that all your readers, get the correct information in regards our company, reason why, we would like to receive a phone number and a physical address from you, to receive directly from each of the Banks that we work with, a letter confirming our services with them, as well as a letter from the company who manages our office in Phoenix stating our job relationship with them, and clear up this misunderstanding.

If you may kindly send this information to me, I will make sure you receive a soon as possible, a letter from the Trustee Division of each Bank confirming our services with them. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Part of the confusion about the legitimacy of this company may have been due to the mis-typing of the name "Nezter" as "Netzer" in some initial posts about this company. -

Missing Person - I am one of many friends of Raymond Peters here in Maui worried about him as he was supposed to be planning a trip and disappeared. He has not been heard from since the beginning of July. The last whereabouts of him are from this website [The Baja Western Onion, February 23, 2011, www.bajawesternonion.com/issues/110223.asp]. Please read the following and see if you know where this house he refers to is, and if so could someone inquire as to his whereabouts?

Thinking About Buiding A House? - Sunday, Feb. 27th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be an open house showcasing a new building method. It is called Pumice Crete. It is a highly insullative, great accoustle, fire proof, termite proof, rust/rot proof, mold proof and is a perfect building material for Baja. Developers, if you build multi unit complexes the building system will save you 60% in labor costs. Location is just around the corner from the San Pedrito Surf Hotel in Pescadero playa. This House Is Not For Sale. - Ray Peters, Pescadero Ray [-a t-] gmail.com, 612-118-7073
Or could someone please give me the number of the police in that town so I can call? My email is red [-a t-] kamaainidivers.com, and my U.S. cell phone is 808-442-2941. - Red, Todos Santos

Business Listing Scam - EU Business Register - Beware of this scam being sent by E mail from a company purporting to be based in Spain:

Dear Madam/Sir,

In order to have your company inserted in the EU Business Register for 2011/2012, please print, complete and submit the enclosed form to the following address:

EU Business Register
Box 252 - 28028 Madrid
Fax: +34 91 791 9167

Updating is free of charge!
There is nothing free about this. It is a scam, pure and simple. From the fine print in the application form sent as a PDF attachment to the Email:
I hereby order a subscription with the service provider EU Business Services Ltd. "Eu Business Register". I will have an insertion into its database for three years. The price per year is euro 995 {my emphasis}. The subscription will be automatically extended every year for another year, unless specific written notice is received by the service provider or the subscriber two months before the expiration of the subscription.
The website, and the perpetrators, are apparently based out of Romania, not Spain. Assuming the modus operandi is the same as similar "Directory Listing" scams over the past few years, those who sign this form in error can expect:
  • You will receive a confirmation of your "order," almost certainly this will arrive after a short 'cooling off' period has expired
  • Reminders to pay will be sent within months.
  • Your account will be handed over to a law firm or collection agency who will insist on payment.
  • Eventual abandonment of accounts where people steadfastly refuse to pay. Many people who fell for this scam refused to pay and were not taken to court.
If you wish to see what the scam application form looks like, I've posted it here: www.bajawesternonion.com/images/ad/ebr.pdf. Beware of these types of Email scams and do not respond to them. - moderator [-a t-] bajawesternonion.com

Publisher's Note: - We received questions as to the intent of some comments in a recent Baja Western Onion concerning Tortugeros las Playitas A.C.. We regret any confusion or concern about these comments, and have removed them from our online edition.

Please note that the organizations, ProPlayas A.C. and Tortugeros las Playitas A.C. are two independent non-profits, each offering unique and valuable services in our local communities. As such, neither organization is responsible for the quality and outcome of any service or program offered by the other. Please also note that the generic term "salvavidas" translates in English as "life guard," and the word is not a proprietary title, any more than words such as "farmacia" or "mercado" are proprietary.

In the future, we ask that article submissions refrain from including comments about other individuals, groups or businesses that could be misinterpreted by our readers as derogatory. -

"A Piece of Eden" Photography - I'm a professional photographer. I started as a model but realized that I liked being more behind the camera than in front of it. Photography lets me express my creativity in so many ways. I've work on commercial photography, personal portraits, advertising, fashion photography, landscape, nature, equine photography, wedding photography, nude photography, nightlife and extreme sports (which is my specialty).

Having an American Dad and a Mexican Mom has teach me to appreciate the best things from both cultures. I have a diploma in Digital Photography and Digital Manipulation, and studied in Guadalajara, Mexico. To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” - Valerie Eden, valeriaedens [-a t-] hotmail.com, edenphotography.tumblr.com/, 624-121-6301, Cabo San Lucas

Baja Dogs Update! - Our "Eli", the staff at the refuge, all volunteers and the Board of Directors of Baja Dogs and myself (Shawn, a very grateful refuge volunteer who cuddles Eli all I can) wish to express our sincere thanks to all those good hearted souls who have provided Eli with a chance to live. We reached out to you in desperation and I can't possibly express in words how overwhelmed we have been with your response. Thank You, from the bottom of our hearts!

Eli has started an antibiotic "Doxycycline" treatment. She receives 500mg once a day for 30 days prior to heartworm treatment. This pre-treatment is the first step and will not be completed for another 2 weeks. This treatment kills an organism (like bacteria) which lives inside the adult heartworm called Wolbachia and seems to sterilize the female heartworm. This treatment is also beneficial in reducing the embolism and shock to Eli that could result when the heartworms die.

We have requested quotes for Eli's treatment from three local veterinarians. We are currently in the process of reviewing and identifying the best treatment for Eli in the most cost effective method. Right now, Eli is a happy beautiful dog. She appears strong and healthy and we are hoping for the best. We will continue to share with you each month her progress through this disease. Sincerely, Shawn, Baja Dogs Volunteer - Dhorea Ryon, dhorearyon [-a t-] hotmail.com, www.bajadogslapaz.org/, 612-140-2575, La Paz

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night... - Okay, so that's a stretch - but it sure felt like it when all six of us got thrown away! We were so scared, so hungry and really missed our mom. After what seemed like forever, a really nice man named Joel came along and took us home. We all got a bath and some really good grub and life was good again.

But, here's the deal: Joel and Isela have a new baby boy and really need to find loving families for us because life is kind of hectic for them right now. Their great big dog and especially kitty have taught us to be respectful and we all get along just great. We are beautiful, in super good health and so anxious to meet our new family - we're waiting! For more info in English call Cindy at 145-0666 or in Spanish only call Joel 044-612-117-8381. - cindyfenix [-a t-] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

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.

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

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

"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
