Re: Buying Boat in Mexico

Daddle, I would not recommend using an attorney in Mexico. In Spanish the word for attorney is Abogado....here commonly referred to as Abogansters. A well deserved title.

Re: Buying Boat in Mexico

there are 5 sites run by one brokerage, owned by a man named ray--mazatlan yacht sales or something--is where the rafiki was found in first place i was protecting my friend from-- each and every potential deal must be investigated thoroughly before committing to it. ask the marina the local workers and everyone you can find about the boat and then proceed if yu approve of the way in which the boat has been treated.

A yacht broker gets his money after the sale. No sale no doe.

An abogangster wont work until he has had his money up front and then try and get him to do something. They have a stock phrase.."I need another 5000 to bribe the judge, this after about the first 5 lots of 5000 you have given them. then everything will come to a grinding halt and nothing will ever happen.

On the dishonesty scale it would be hard to say who wins.

Dunno about gangster - sounds more like a classic Rainmaker con to me (you pay bribes for stuff that will likely happen anyway - if it don't happen (for genuine reasons) wot ya gonna do? Go to the Police or sue because your attempt to bribe to an official / Judge! failed ).
