Hope that answers your question.
i understand that. i came in after the 11th (i have a charge on my card) and i'm here on a fmm for the long haul till i get a residente temporal (i hope).

i was just wondering how the money came back.
sounds like they reversed the charge...as you got the 1% visa transaction fees backs vrs issuing a credit for say $200/$300/$400.

if i leave say in 179 days, i wonder if that is past the period when a reversal can happen and it's just a credit.

does that make sense? maybe that's not how CC work.
anyone with a merchant acct know?
i was expecting to take the 1% visa transaction fee hit.

Yes, it was a charge reversal. Not sure what happens after several months. I expect Visa would reverse the transaction fee as well. I'll call Visa and ask.

if you father drives back in with same vehicle then he doesn't stop for a visa or car paperwork (as it's all done, he's legal)...and also he does not need to check out the car when he leaves (as he's returning).
now if he's coming in with a new car then he need to check in, show his visa and he'll be paying that deposit. if he's never leaving, mexico owns his $ forever, but that is much cheaper than getting his citizenship and nationalizing the vehicle as mexican.

they are no longer fm-3 (nor fm-2) but just residente temporale.
he need to fill out his info online and bring in the pdf printout (turn off web browser pop-up blocker)
There is somebody that takes care of all his paperwork at the plant. He just shows up to sign and take the pictures. Haven't heard if he has had a change from the FM3 yet, he might've mentioned it but I cant remember for sure. He has never had a visa, just FM-3s. His truck actually stays in the city he lives in, he only travels by two wheels these days, and the bike is licensed in Mex.

border cities

Study shows border cities are safer than public perception and politicians were using border safety for political purposes. Hmmm, maybe Mexico is also safer than we are led to believe.

Link to article

The picture painted of America's southwestern border with Mexico is a bloody one, in which the drug violence decimating northern Mexico has spilled onto U.S. soil and turned the region into a war zone.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has warned of human skulls rolling through her state's deserts. Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, says violence on the U.S. side of the border is "out of control." Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., has suggested sending a military brigade to protect Americans.
"Of course there is spillover violence along the border," Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said during a recent congressional hearing. "It is not secure and it has never been more violent or dangerous than it is today. Anyone who lives down there will tell you that."
That's not actually the case, according to a USA TODAY analysis that draws upon more than a decade of detailed crime data reported by more than 1,600 local law enforcement agencies in four states, federal crime statistics and interviews along the border from California to Texas.

Is the big Pemex due south of Reynosa and maybe 15 miles northeast of San Fernandino still open?

Which Pemexes are closed?

Glad that you didn't have to walk Amigo. That would have sucked!

Were all the Pemex between Matamoros and La Marina closed? Or did you ride by a few and not refuel?

Topped of mile from border. Last open PEMEX was about 20 -25 miles south of Matamoros. I was looking hard after passing 2 closed fuel stops. 3ed closed one really had me worried. No problem south of Marina--Tampico--Veracruz-Oaxaca

Makes it harder for the bad guys to get fuel. Harder for the good guys, I know, but the goal is to shut down the bad guys.
