RV Gringo's Comments

Posted by Jon on May 1, 2010, 12:06 pm, in reply to "Re: Travel warning"

Here's what RVGringo, one of the most prolific posters on and the main moderator on had to say on
The posting, which describes a carjacking north of Mazatlan, is making the rounds of several forums. The person posting is doing so from BC, Canada and, when asked for substantiation of the incident by a moderator, has become suddenly silent; perhaps at discovering that moderators can identify the source of their ISP.
Similar 'incidents' have been described, similarly, for other locations but, strangely, they don't make the Mexican news and are always second hand accounts, at best.
One must realize that there are those outside of Mexico who may have 'another agenda', and that the Consular Warnings are often worded to create more concern than is necessary and are left up way past the current incident which caused them to be posted. End of quote.

Might deserve a response on Jon
