    Feliz Cinco De Mayo Y Dia De Independencia!

    When adding the PS to my previous post, I acidentally omitted this: I chatted (in whatsapp) with the (still sweet as ever) "clipboard lady" yesterday. Her response to the fact that it had been fifteen years was "OMG!!!" That was the reason I then wrote: "If I wasn't an Athiest, I would thank...

    Feliz Cinco De Mayo Y Dia De Independencia!

    I am "celebrating" my arrival in Argentina fifteen years ago today and I'm happier than ever I made the move (especially to my present location in "el campo" almost eleven years ago where I am still "Going Galt in Argentina" as my signature used to read). If I wasn't an Athiest, I would thank...

    Is Western Union asking non-residents for a CDI now?

    Without exception, every time I have sent funds to myself via Western Union in the past 14 months, there is only one option for the origin of funds and that is "family assistance" and I know that was also the origin of the funds my sister-in-law gave when she made several transfers in late 2019...

    Bank Fraud Lawyer Advice

    I doubt that would be legally possible, so I don't think any Argentine bank would have anything to worry about, including negative publicity. Even if they use the same name (HSBC for example), I'm quite certain that all banks in Argentina are independent from banks in any other country...

    Bank Fraud Lawyer Advice

    Why pay a lawyer to make a claim (denuncia) on your behalf when you can do it yourself without charge? In a previous thread about a problem with a bank, Nikad provided this link: https://www.buenosaires.gob.ar/defensaconsumidor/como-denunciar

    Looking to invest $1 million USD in Argentina - what should I buy?

    My suggestion to MM (and anyone who is capable of at least planting and maintaining a garden) is still to buy land where they can grow food, but not in or close to a massive urban center and not land on which you don't or can't live, preferably a location where your neighbors are doing the same...

    Looking to invest $1 million USD in Argentina - what should I buy?

    Having read most of his posts and given the title of this thread, I don't think MM is interested in operating a business. He has previously claimed to be a professional futbol agent and has (here in the forum) promoted Scientology events and retreats to take ayahuasca , both of which came with...

    Uruguayan President seizes Pfizer vaccines Argentine neglected

    ALL of the percentages claimed in the list below apply to individuals who have been infected after receiving the vaccine. There is no claim that being vaccinated makes anyone immune to getting the virus. The 80% figure in the list applies specifically to the reduction in death rates of...

    Uruguayan President seizes Pfizer vaccines Argentine neglected

    Let's say, at my age (and considering no other factors), I have a five percent chance of dying if I get covid without being vaccinated. 'Using your terminology, that's five chances out of one hundred I will die from covid without being vaccintated. If the vacine has an 80% effectiveness rate...

    Is Western Union asking non-residents for a CDI now?

    There are "cuevas" in the city where expats can sell their dollars if they already have dollars in Argentina and get the "blu" rate. I never have physical dollars in Argentina and I have been using online transfer services for the past eight years. That's when I stopped using ATM's. Since...

    Is Western Union asking non-residents for a CDI now?

    Yeah, now expats can get back to more important concerns...like how to avoid paying taxes in Argentina (perhaps by not creating a "paper trail" for AFIP to follow). I imagine the one request for igggysnaks to provide a CDI was triggered by the high number of transfers and the total amount of...
