    Consumer Protection Agency for consumer purchases

    It's been a while since I've used ML but it used to be that you could select an option to arrange payment directly with the seller, but you would lose buyer protection.

    Consumer Protection Agency for consumer purchases

    I'm still not clear whether you made the purchase through ML and then arranged a bank payment, or if the whole process took place outside of ML. If the first, I would definitely either threaten to, or actually start the claim process in ML. These guys live and die by their metrics, and not...

    Consumer Protection Agency for consumer purchases

    Bear in mind that you're gonna need some sort of identifying information if you want to file a claim through Defensa del Consumidor. ie: the seller's name or CUIT. They might also require a Factura to actually process the claim, I know that the equivalent entity at the National level does, but...

    Western Union money transfer

    Hah, it's a good point but I was just answering sneakrnet's followups. I'll do that and stop spamming the thread, sorry.

    Western Union money transfer

    Yeah, the transfer it exists, has a number and shows as In-Progress but nothing else other than a mention to maybe the receiver (me) getting a verification call. Not worried about it, just curious since it's never happened before.

    Western Union money transfer

    I don't know then. Might have been hit with a random check. I'll see what happens in the next couple of days.

    Western Union money transfer

    Ah, ok, I see what's going on. This is the third transfer in 90 days, and I think that triggers further review.

    Saliva Rapid PCR test in BA

    Bear in mind that unless you specifically ask for it, CABA will use an antigen test and the legal requirement is a PCR test between 3 and 5 days after arrival. Nobody will actually check this; you do it only because if it turns out you are in fact COVID positive and infected a bunch after...

    Bitcoin / Crypto to USD to buy property

    If you're buying a property in your name, I'd be careful that the realtor isn't just having you use a "cueva" (un unlicensed money exchange) because you're going to want to be able to have records of the transaction. I don't mean the confirmation of the transaction on the blockchain but some...

    Western Union money transfer

    Anyone triggered a bank-to-bank transfer in the past couple of days? I've been getting 24-hour transfer confirmations for at least a year but this last one has been pending for almost 3 days now. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else.

    Purchasing A House

    You can just execute a wire transfer from the US to Arg., yes. You will have to arrange with the bank with at least 24 hours' notice to withdraw large sums (depending on the branch, that might be anything upwards of 5-10k USD). Some banks will ask for supporting documentation regarding the...

    Bien de familia

    There's really no downsides, although technically Normally the "Bien de Familia" procedure is done by an Escribano. I didn't know you could do it through an administrative office. There's no legal impediment as far as I know for foreigners to request the status change for the property...

    Do I need a special permit to work remotely for my US-based company?

    Not sure what you mean by " if you aren't supposed to be making money in that country". If you are asking if the US cares about your legal status in Argentina when it comes to filing your US taxes, then the answer is probably no. The IRS expects you to file income on any tax, even if it is the...

    Western Union money transfer

    On what section? Not saying you aren't right, I'm just curious if it's something you might have authorized specifically. I've never seen individual transactions in AFIP except for stuff that is specifically informed by banks or credit cards like transactions in foreign currencies, where that...

    Western Union money transfer

    AFIP only knows the totals in your account, they don't actually have access to your transactions. By the same token, banks cannot legally require your tax documents (although they often heavily imply they can). That said, banks must (and do) report any transactions they deem suspicious, with...

    Western Union money transfer

    Everyone that's saying "just change your password after" is mistaken about how the authorization process works. Not only does WU never get your password, it wouldn't matter if you did change it. WU receives a cryptographic token that essentially lets them access your account without the password...

    Visa Runs

    It won't. The City of BA could, maybe, exempt digital nomads from paying Ingresos Brutos, which is a local tax, but that in itself would presume that technically they are now permanent residents and should pay the tax in the first place, so by taking the exemption you'd essentially be admitting...
