Argentina: The Fake Gynecologist

Ian Mount on the Bueno Aires expat scandal involving a soon-to-be extradited sex offender who claimed he was a gynecologist in the US and then pretended he was with Doctors Without Borders in Argentina. Tango in her eyes, another expat blogger, is thankful she listened to her gut feelings: “This person emailed me extending his offer help me with my medical needs, because my “cold” just may turn into a bronchical infection. He was just a bit “too” interested in helping me. And then when he mentioned the method of ingestion of the antibiotics he was going to perscribe, the ALARMS really went CODE RED!”
