Thanks To Lifeguards And Others - While surfing at Los Cerritos on Christmas day, our son was badly hurt and was taken to the hospital in La Paz.

Scammers Sending Email To Baja Western Onion Subscribers - We've received reports of scam letters being sent to BWO readers:
From: koya konan
Date: December 27, 2011 4:01:29 AM MST
To: koya200 [ -at- ] hotmail.com

Maz. to La Paz Ferry - Anyone coming down and taking the ferry over to the La Paz side over the next 6-8weeks, I need a few boxes brought over. I'm making the first crossing next week and back to pick up other belongings the first week of February but just can't fit it all in my car. We live in Ajijic now. Anyone that can help out? If so, please write larrycrowson2010 [ -at- ] gmail.com - Larry Crowson, larrycrowson2010 [ -at- ] gmail.com, 333-171-7800, United States

Mexican Prison????? - I have just done 5 months two weeks in prison in mexico. Released recently free of charges. I want to tell my story to decompress and try and make $ to pay for legal bills. I have amazing eye opening stories to share. Book, documentary movie, series, special, reality, whatever. I need an inspired writer/creator and publisher/producer to collaborate. I have an 135 page journal that helped me survive emotionally on a journey I never could have imagined. This is my first outing of this story. Open to any ideas. - , Baja California Sur

More Caller ID Spoofing - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Via the VentanaView: AT & T Wireless (the actual number for AT&T Wireless Customer Service that I call, besides 611) called me on Christmas Eve. This shady guy on the phone started out offering me a free "upgrade" and said that he needed my password/PIN number. I hung up on him, sort of shocked, and called back AT & T to scold them for their lame employee but when I called back their message advised that their call center was closed. SO REMEMBER: thieves can use your cell phone to get cash via money texting. It's an alarming scam. Be careful! TM

Toxic Sea Slugs - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Toxic Slugs to Dogs are out on the beaches, again. Please help to dispose or bury them. And really keep an eye on your dog while walking them. ~L [ -at- ] Yo Yo's (I don't know if we get these slugs here on EastCape but best to be aware.
