Another Mule Needed

Postby freeeye » Tue Oct 17, 2017 2:51 pm

... for an envelope containing a replacement credit card.

I was 'victim' of a scam last week and lost my credit card. A replacement is on it's way but is in the US. I can have it mailed to anywhere there, to arrive within about 2 weeks.

It's a old scam but I got suckered. I was standing in the checkout line at Soriana in Pitillal and the woman behind me said that some kids had run by and there was catsup squirted all over the back of my shirt and pants.

I went to the bano to get some hand towels to clean it off and a guy there in a Soriana uniform offered to help. While he was helping me I was concentrating on my wallet pocket but he was good and got my credit card without me noticing. I didn't even check for it when I got home because the wallet was still there in the same pocket with a couple thousand pesos. He took only one card.

To say that I feel stupid is a gross understatement.

Anyhow, I need to get the replacement down here securely.

I am arriving exactly 2 weeks from today, does that allow enough time to get the cc to me ?

Rick I have had them sent to Mailboxes Etc. common mailbox. They give you instructions where to send it in Miami.
