  1. Actually the dollar is stronger today than 30 days ago against the Euro and most other world currencies. The Mexican peso getting stronger against most world currencies in the same time period including the US dollar.
  2. Same as Larry A Be sure your cell is 4g LTE and a GSM network phone https://www.ebay.com/itm/293902916901?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D777008%26algo%3DPERSONAL.TOPIC%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20220705100511%26meid%3D7f8a0c2da17249b99ebb67d23d8d3390%26pid%3D101524%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26itm%3D293902916901%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26algv%3DRecentlyViewedItemsV2%26brand%3DT-Mobile&_trksid=p2380057.c101524.m146925&_trkparms=pageci%3A9e02cd63-06f2-11ee-b0e2-82c602018f2b|parentrq%3Aa16570481880ad333cf50617fffefd0c|iid%3A1
  3. Magic Jack is VOIP Many services, banks, brokerage, etc. will not text or call a VOIP number. More are joining the no VOIP every Month.
  4. More & more banks and services are requiring 2 step verification. Some will email, but some will only text. Some that only text need a US number. Many banks can tell if your number is a VIOP number and will not call or text to that number. Capitol One is an example. We have a TMobile account for $3.00 a month that will receive texts in Mexico. Paid $40 for the sim. Texts to Mx cost 25 cents.
  5. Ok you are right on that point. The OP said they were trying to make a purchase, so I assumed they had logged in as normal. If they were replying to a message, Whatsapp, or email then your scenario could be the case. Way to find out is clear cookies, then try to log to the ML website in using incognito mode on the web browser and see what happens.....
  6. If you are using the app on a cell phone when you are connected to your home's wifi it is just as secure as your computer is. Try Mercado Libre Customer Service at 11 3003 4333, option 2, from Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 21:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 19:00 p.m. Other ML numbers 55 4973 7300 option 2. 55 1889 2277
  7. https://www.mercadolibre.com.mx/ayuda/chat?flow=AA_ML You might try doing the procedure from the ML app on your cell phone. Cell cameras are better suited for the face picture procedures
  8. Mercadolibre is far from a scam. They have a market cap of 63 billion dollars on the NASDAQ . They are verifying various accounts to make sure they are secure.... Those procedures are for your own protection....Similar procedures are required to initiate a bank app in Mexico. Needed to take a photo of my passport for a US account recently as well.

  10. Federal law requires that you report money of over $10,000US when entering the USA, by land, marine, or air. It is a reporting requirement. Failure to do so can cause forfeiture of the money if you are caught. "Money" means monetary instruments and includes U.S. or foreign coins currently in circulation, currency, travelers' checks in any form, money orders, and negotiable instruments or investment securities in bearer form. The same $10,000US applies when entering Mexico. The report does not trigger any tax. https://www.cbp.gov/travel/international-visitors/kbyg/money
  11. A BBVA debit card is a Visa card. It will work at almost any ATM in the world.
  12. Who works closely with Tlaloc and Chaak to ensure we get the rain.....
  13. I always use the CFE bill which is in my wife's name. Works fine for my Drivers License and with IMSS.
  14. No crap shoot. Just check before you go at either of the 2 options and you will know your rate https://www.mastercard.com/global/en/personal/get-support/convert-currency.html https://usa.visa.com/support/consumer/travel-support/exchange-rate-calculator.html
