    Well, then "accidentally" forgetting the attachment to postpone the deadline isn't that clever.

    I feel bad for the guy. After all of these years, he still isn't willing to admit that he got scammed by a crooked border patrol agent.

    They don't stamp when you cross the border on foot (or car I believe) as they say it is not considered a "sortie" for passport purposes. Neither Canada nor Mexico has ever stamped my passport when crossing by foot but if you arrive by air then certainly they will. ymmv.

    Sorry if I upset you guys :D

    No, not Romanian, and not Canadian either (never said I was).

    This was in my backpacking youth, a few months before the cavity search inducing events of 9/11.

    Could be that I got scammed by border control, but more likely the fee was there to finance the border crossing through stupid tourists (like myself) walking across the border rather than through tax payer money. Don't believe the fee applied to Canadians/US-citizens.

    LOL, most creative save on getting bullshit called I've ever read. Backpacking tour? And 13 years = "years and years ago?"

    I guess in the pre-9/11 world backpackers were actually ruck marchers. Today all of these lazy kids take trains, buses, and tuktuks everywhere! Millenials...

    I'm just trying to picture a backpacking tour in the St. Lawrence region and wondering, 'Why?"
