Pollen counts and temps:
I hate my life.
In other suckitude.....
y'all know my in laws live in Mexico..... and y'all know that the border cops are not exactly the most trusted people in the world.....
Some guy calls my in laws and my MIL answers and the guy says "Heyyyyy...it's your favorite nephew from the states! How are you?!"
She's like "Uhhhhhh Memo?"
"Ya! But.....Tia....I got stopped at the border 'cause I was coming to visit everybody over there. They said they want money because I don't have the right paperwork or something...."
Then later, he calls again, saying the border police want to talk to them and the 'border patrol' guy says they found a gun in 'Memos' bag........so they're going to need more to let this offense go. Like 20,000 pesos.
What the..... so my FIL is worried because he knows how many killings/disappearances that have been going on down there.
Soooooooooooo.............he goes and puts $500 in the account that the 'police' told him to.
An hour later they call him again asking for more money.
Thennnnn my FIL starts thinking 'wth?' so he goes over to the bank where he just deposited $500 and says 'Hey, what is up with this.....etc' and tells them everything, so they look it up and as soon as he had deposited the money, it was taken out from an online source.
So, the bank people said there was really no way to get the money back.
After that, my FIL went to the police (the real police) and was telling them what happened and as he was telling them, the scammers actually called him again! So, the detective pretended to be my FIL..........so they are there going back and forth, and at the end of it, the detective gets all pissed off and starts going off on these scammers.
So, the end result is that now these scammers keep calling my FIL, so he had to shut off his phone and pray that they don't KNOW him......or where he lives.
We have been badgering them to hurry up and move back to the States before anything really bad happens.
(Note: This is not to say all border cops are not following the rules. It's just there's always a bad apple or two in the bunch.)
