Warning to Expat = Venezuelans

Postby windsportinperu » Wed Aug 22, 2018 8:23 am

I thought I would never have to make a thread like this, because I have a lot of Venezuelans who are my friends, here in Peru and abroad.

I am one of those Peruvians who love Venezuela and their people, their beaches and Culture. Their happiness and enthusiasm for life is amazing.

Unfortunately, things have changed dramatically the last months all over South America. Crimes, robberies and unnecessary violence made by a notorious and big minority of them are affecting their impression we had in Perú and the rest of the Continent.

Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil are among the most affected countries, but also Panama and Chile.

I am still trying to resist to the blatant evidence that these events is happening in Peru and the rest of the mentioned Countries.

Hello JumpingJack , This thread is a clear warning

For example if you are the owner of a business in Peru (as an expat), you should take the necessary preventive measure to this not happens to you

Kind of a 'clear and present danger', eh?

You might understand that a warning cannot be mentioned inside another thread , because of the purpose of the warning itself could be easily lost

Jumpinjack,

This another video demonstrate clearly that the vast majority of Venezuelans (the good people) want order and respect.
I extracted , translated and quoted some phrases made by them , just for you

“Document in order (for venezuelans)”
“We (venezuelans) must respect Peru”

Sorry that happened to you, Windy.
The clear warning should be that you the store owner should be careful who you hire.
Hard to take the necessary preventive measure to stop an inside job like that.

Jimmy, I agree

The owner of that business lost a lot of money, the cashier could have already easily run away from Peru with all the money

A good way to control it, is making a daily balance between the money in the cash-drawer and the number of receipt (boleta or factura) . It should match in quantities every single day.

That cashier should perhaps try for a career in magic... now you see it, now you don't...

My Spanish isn't so great so forgive me if I'm mistaken but in the video an expat store owner hired a crooked Venezuelan cashier who was on the take?
My questions, why did he hire a Venezuelan instead of a Peruvian?
Is it because he could pay her less than a Peruvian?
Was she even legally able to work in Peru?
If all this is true then he only has himself to blame.

Formidable1, It is a good set of question, but none of them are answered straightforward by the video.

Bad news: 2 Venezuelans killed a Peruvian carpenter in Trujillo

The carpenter offered them a place to work. They killed him without mercy hitting his head with an sledge hammer. Previously to be murdered his hands and feet were tied with a rope, Then they stole all the money and are fugitive now. Be careful

Explanation of part of the complex problem in Venezuela:

The Communist Revolution in Venezuela was supported by a group of followers named by Chavez as "colectivos" . At the beginning they were para-military with guns prepared to threaten or kill anyone who was against the Revolution. They were thousands and thousands of men and women

After the death of Chavez and the economic collapse of Venezuela (Maduro), those armed forces have become as a new form of group into the country. They are actually just criminals . They do whatever they want, no official police or judge in Venezuela dare to put them in jail They kill, kidnap, they steal from grocery stores, and do the "dirty work"

Colectivos (now criminals with impunity) are extreme dangerous and have exemption of punishment. They think they have the right to do whatever they want inside of Venezuela, but also outside of it (Colombia, Brazil, Peru and Ecuador)
