New Mexico LLC
I noted on Senorita Rosie\\\\\\\'s website that she is retiring. Will someone else be taking over her business? Is there someone else you would recommend?

I checked a website that does LLC filings in all 50 states and provides a registered agent. I had an online chat with a sales rep. They want to set up the EIN, articles, etc. for a hefty fee. Not sure why an EIN would be necessary to hold property in an LLC when it\\\\\\\'s not being used to conduct business.

Just trying to get a sense on where to go from here.

You do not need an EIN. I have bought and sold over a million dollars worth of properties. No EIN.

Rosie is quitting because she sees the writing on the wall, in New Mexico. However, she will still sell the anonymous LLCs until the end of this month so contact her NOW!

This is a comment on Mr.Luna\\\'s advice on a mom and pop operation to rent a mailbox at a CMRA. I was looking around and found a plumbing supply store that had about twenty mailboxes that they rent.. I filled out the forms and using old I.D. That was about to expire and it worked perfectly.

Purpose in life
I was going way back through the years, in all your questions and comments, and found one where you offered to send someone your belief about finding a true purpose in life. Since my wife of 45 years died last month, I am at sort of a crossroads about what to beleive in, or do with my life from now on. We were once baptized, each in a different religion, but we pretty much fell away over the years, after seeing too much hypocrisy in both religions.
If you still have that information, would you mind sending me a copy, Mr. Luna? I may not agree with what you tell me but I do promise to read it and do some serious meditating.

This forum is about privacy, not religion, but if you care to send me your email address, I will answer . Do put Purpose in the subject line because otherwise I may miss your email. (FYI, I am a dropout from the Congregational Church in Williams, Minnesota. That was long, long ago!)

Ghost Address
Jack, Is the rural ghost address story in your book still feasible and if not can you say why. ThankYou, Lee

It depends on each rural mailperson, Lee. It works with some but not with others, any more.

Private licensing bureaus for titling cars

In HTBI, you provide an anecdote of titling a car in an LLC by going to a private licensing bureau rather than a DMV office.

Any suggestions on how to locate these private licensing bureaus? I\\\\\\\'m having trouble finding one near me.

Are there advantages to using a private licensing bureau other than shorter lines? If I can\\\\\\\'t find one, can I still execute the LLC strategy by going to an official DMV office to title my car?

Did you look in the Yellow Pages under licensing? I find some are friendly. Some are not. I suggest you try the DMV first. Perhaps all will be well.

re: real estate agency address q
I do

I do not answer questions from readers who do not give me the courtesy of letting me know their true first name, their age, and the state they\'re from. This information cannot affect your privacy, right?

Question #11521
What is the deadline on NM LLCs? On what date will the laws change?

Plase contact Rosie.

Tracked through my job?
I\\\'ve been preparing to disappear for a while now and everything is taken care of, except I\\\'m worried about one thing: my job. I\\\'m moving to another state and I plan on getting a new job there, but I\\\'m concerned I will be found through my job. I won\\\'t give out my social security number until I get confirmation that they want to hire me, but obviously I have to give it out eventually, and when I do, will I be located like that? What are the odds that they will find me through my job? My job will be the only place where my real name and SSN will have to be revealed.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to avoid being found in the \"new hires\" list.
If you do manage to keep your name off the list, please do let us all know how you did it!

Alaska Ghost Address
I am in the process of purchasing my first NM LLCs and I would like to use the Alaska ghost address for them. I assume this is where we request information on the ghost addresses since I didn\\\'t see anyplace on the website specific to requesting info on the ghost addresses. Thank you for all you do.

New Edition Book
Mr. Luna, Thank you for your great books. You sir have helped me become more private in everything I do. Do you plan on a new How to be invisible book anytime in the near future?

All new editions must be approved by the publisher, Saint Martin\\\'s press, in New York.
They only consider another edition, when the current edition\'s sales are dropping. As for my third edition, sales have not dropped at all.

Re: 11520 cell phones
There is a difference between keeping an old cell phone and maintaining legacy service. Should you decide to get a new phone, typically (depends on the company) you can transfer your current plan to the new phone. Of course, very old phones have the advantage that they do not have GPS.

What other service might you like to see offered?
Ghost addresses in Canada, Mexico, or Panama would be very useful !!

mail forwarding
What is the benefit of a temporary forward from a real home address to a po box vs a permanent change to a dummy box that you cancel and don\\\\\\\'t have forwarded at a later date (after anything important has been updated to a true, 2nd address)?

In your case, there may not be any benefit. Each reader must make his own decision.

Carrying cash
Hi JJ. My wife and I will be vacationing in South Florida this summer. What is the safest to way to carry cash? (We\\\'re worried about robbers, pickpockets, etc.) We\\\'ll probably just be wearing shorts and T-shirts, so that may limit our options. Is a money belt recommended, or is that too obvious -- like leaving a key under the door mat?

We\\\'ve saved up for two years for this and I\\\'m not as able to defend myself as I was in my younger days. Thanks for your help!

You consider yourself old when you are only 61?

If you are just carrying, say, an extra $1500 or so, you might use a can safe. I use a hollow WD-40 can, with $2000 inside. It goes in a battered old tool box with pliers, a wrench, a few screwdrivers, and a greasy old towel.

Privacy as a Real Estate Agent
I have been considering getting my Real Estate License to go into business for myself. If I go down this path are there ways to structure my Real Estate business privately? Or does the licensing process and State / Federal regulations make this impossible?

If you wish to stay legal, then use your correct address.

If any other agents dispute this, I\'d be interested in hearing from them.

What State for LLC Now?
I read you e-mail about NM\\\'s proposed law change regarding LLCs. Will you be recommending other states for LLC formation?

Too soon to tell, Steve. For now, get a NM LLC before the laws change.

cell phones
I keep an old dumb phone to use as a backup. I first got it back in the day when you could get prepaid service without revealing any information and was on T-mobiles plan where I just had to put $10 on it once a year to keep it active. I got it out today to check on my top up date and realized that T-mobile has done away with the old plans. I spoke with a customer service rep who stated that my phone will stay with the legacy plan as long as it is active.

So, should I keep my old phone (about 20 years old but still works despite surviving a flood) or switch to a different provider. The main pro of keeping it is that they don\\\'t have personal info on me with it but the cons is that the future of my service is uncertain. I checked the tracfone website and it looks like their own plans may have changed as well. Pageplus still has the old plans and is the best pricing but I am concerned that signing up for service may require giving out information as it has to be done online or at a store.

Do you recommend any particular cell phone service for dumb phones at this time?

I prefer to pay cash.

Pistol Permit
Due to the invasive and time consuming process of ascertaining a pistol permit on NYS, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m curious to know your stance and if you be so kind to provide advice. Thank you

Three choices, you choose.

1. Go through the process.
2. Take a chance and carry sans permit.
3. Do not carry a handgun. This one is my choice. takes DNA ownership rights from customers and their relatives
