You've heard this before: Don't believe everything you read. It is especially true now. Every entity - whether the news media or commercial ventures - wants you to read their stuff so that they can sell ads. Me too. In the process of doing so, they sensationalize everything as much as possible. They also want to be the first out there with whatever news there is to report; therefore, they cut corners and their stories are not always factual. In fact, the "facts" can be outright fabrications. The New York Times likes doing that a lot. Take every little morsel with a grain of salt. Don't believe everything you hear either.

About three years ago, a craze in Mexican historical bonds took off. Owners of these old (junk) bonds became super anxious to unload their bonds because they were led to believe that (non-existent) bond "buyers" would pay millions for them. The truth was that crooked Swiss bankers (swindlers) simply wanted to collect the items to use as collateral for short term loans. The real beneficiaries (besides the crooked Swiss bankers) were the loan applicants and the people in charge of collecting all relevant data from the bond owners. The bond owners would innocently sign over ownership of their bonds to the middlemen in exchange for IOUs. Of course, escape clauses in these contracts enabled the swindlers to legally perpetrate their swindles. Bond owners almost never got paid and, when they did, they collected pennies on the dollar. Many investors actually purchased bonds for thousands of dollars thinking they could flip them for millions. I posted a small article about a Petchili bond seller I knew (in this very blog) and it got 4273 views in one day. Such was the anxiety.

It is easier - and much better - to rake the leaves every day than every thirty days. It's like showering or exercising or practicing piano. Of course, if you are one of millions of people with rock landscaping, all you can do is re-arrange the rocks - or stare at them. Grass and trees are better. At least they provide oxygen - rocks don't.

Greetings. I have a friend who knows someone in the U.S. (Texas) who has control of these and other bonds: send me an email and I will give you his name and number. He assures me the bonds are not priced in the millions. Even I could afford them :-) Please refer to the photo on the left (which he sent me) for further information. Super Petchilis, Farmer 250,000, Farmer 500,000 box, F20 Sterling, Liberty Escalera, and others - all Passco certified. It has been a while since I last posted anything about bonds here. My email is pronetoviolins at g mail dot com
Best of luck.

A friend of mine is currently sourcing a Farmer 500000 bond for a client. If anyone happens to run across one, please contact him by contacting me at prone to violins at g mail dot com. My understanding is that the bond is currently very hard to find. I would not know if that's true or not.

I have been advised by a close friend that a Black Eagle 27500 Mexican bond is available for 50 million. (Yes, that's correct - 50 million) If you have a capable, honest, unpretentious, mature, responsible, serious, trustworthy, and loyal buyer, perhaps you can make a little money. My friend DOES NOT accept ANY kind of POF documents from anybody. If you have a buyer with financial capacity, he must prove it by showing the seller the money in person. All I can do is put you in touch. Just send me an email - I am very busy with my own things but I WILL eventually respond. No need to rush. Have a good day.
