GUANACASTE: ***For those of you who feel you have been scammed and lost money you need to make the effort to contact your local FBI office and report your losses. Once the total losses exceed $100,000 from all combined across the US the FBI will proceed. As individuals unless your loss is $100,000 nothing will be done, but as an organized group you can pool your losses and reach the investigation criteria.
Take whatever evidence you may have, make your case and make sure you explain that others across the country are doing this to reach the $100,000 mark. Ask them to make sure your report gets forwarded to the Richmond, Virginia office to the attention of Special Agent Michael R. Schuler.***
Playas del Coco is such a small place that everyone pretty much knows everyone, or at least who everyone is. Even so, it must be that you’ve reached some sort of celebrity status when local folks start taking pictures of you while you’re out shopping, just as though you’re a movie star or something.
Here’s a smartphone photo of
Gregory Karnes George Triggs at the Automercado for instance, minding his own business, just schlepping around as though he thought he could be incognito as opposed to being infamous in the area.
George has actually only lived in the area for about a year or so, but he’s a big wheel in the group that’s been operating for 4 or 5 years under various names such as Coco Sunset Vacation Club, Bahia Turquesa Residences, Coco Bay Estates, The Residence Club at Coco Bay Estates, Vista Ocotal Residence Club, Terramar, Las Palmas Travel Network, Las Palmas CR Residence Club, Luxury Leisure Alliance, Las Palmas Private Residence Club, Manrey Private Residence Club (Panama), Playa de las Palmas, RD Residences Club Limitada, Omnicorp Development, Miramar Residence Club, Las Playas de Palmas TM, Meridian, Four Palms Marketing/4Palms Marketing, Central American Investments, Costa Rican Investments, Executive Properties, Costa Rica Development Group, Amerashare Annuity, C S Sharing S.A., C S Sharing Sociedad Anonima…
Whew. Anyhow, that’s why he and his buddies are so well-recognized in the area that locals take pictures of them as though they were celebrities.
Of course there are downsides to being “famous”, too. But there you are, smack dab in the public eye and people all around with smartphones just aching to take a picture of — mmmm, possibly YOU.
So what’s a body supposed to do about it?
Smile, everyone, you’re on Candid Camera!
