Re: credit repair As a business ??
How will someone know that when the industry as a whole is a bunch of scammers?
How does someone know which used car store is the honest one?

There are plenty of other websites, blogs, and forums where you can spew your hate. Don't do it here. Ty.

Re: Buying Echo Dot 3rd Generation
You've made it pretty clear you're flipping to buying groups. You don't think that's a little shady? You're basically preying on the ignorance of those who will sell to you not knowing about the buying groups.
I hope you're joking.


IMO, he's providing an opportunity to those that don't know about buying groups/don't want to deal with buying groups.

What do you think the buying groups do with it?

They sell to a wholesaler who sells to a retailer (usually with one or 2 more people in the middle).

Are they taking advantage of you/"preying on you", since you don't know how to reach wholesalers and retailers?  ??? ???

Re: Bingo Wholesale Club Lakewood
the whole point of this is to get u to buy 2
Exactly!

Why would the sign say "2 for $4" instead of just saying "price is $1" just like all other items in the store have the price listed as a quantity of 1??

The answer is that the sale sign is specifying a special price if you buy 2!

It's very simple. Not sure why everyone thinks otherwise.

2. The facts are that many of the women in Lakewood are unable or unwilling to dedicate the time needed to advance to a managerial position and would prefer more freedom to spend time with their family.
Great point. It is almost impossible to find women in Lakewood that are willing to work 9-5.

One of these scams now is run by the owner of a lakewood school. He probably did this as well...

I'm absolutely serious. I have absolutely no affiliation with them besides for knowing writers who work for them.
. . . and what do they have to say about making hype, and not following through?

They are new site. They should be careful with such things. It will make them lose their credibility.

I have Verizon prepaid and service is just terrible...in many places around town I simply can't get a data connection. In other places, it's very slow. I urge whoever is having a similar experience to file a complaint with the FCC.
Supposedly upgrades are coming next month.

In Jackson, right outside Lakewood, Ocean Dermatology. Frum Yid, liked the doctor very much.

There's a few doctors there.  P. A. Lind is the frum guy.  (There's another frum doctor, but he's never there)

Don't get thrown off by the PA title. He's not a doctor, but he's been in practice for 17 years.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
For that they can get a warehouse in the industrial park without needing to spend the money on making it look nice.
Your logic is backwards.

Instead leasing a warehouse, they are leasing a store front which gives them presence on the south side of town + it gives them the opportunity to make money from foot traffic.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
And costs them many multiples what a warehouse would.
. . . and gains them many multiples of profit over a warehouse. Exposure and foot traffic are 2 amazing ways to grow the business.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
When a landlord fills up both bins and the tenant puts 1 bag a week, the landlord takes it out.
Yeh the tenant can take it out if the landlord is on vacation, but the expectation is that landlord will take it out any other time. If the landlord forgets, the tenant wouldnít know to take it out until itís too late.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
Yeah I understand that is the norm, but my issue was with the attitude "if he wants me to take out the garbage, let him get me a can". That is disgusting. The landlord can ask the tenant a favor to take out the garbage.
Lemme guess, you must be a landlord  ::)

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
Any way to request a garbage pickup? My landlord didn't take it out this week and it was already overflowing
If you noticed that he forgot, you should've done it before it was too late. Happens with my landlord every so often, and I gladly take it out.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
I'm confused, what do rabbanim have to do with the decision making process of whether to go to someone?
In most cases of life & death situations, there are Rabbis involved. They work alongside the doctors to determine how to address the situation from a halacha standpoint.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
So the doctor should have time for other things besides every chochom's phone calls? The letter very specifically said to ask a doctor about specific situations. So he did. what do you want from the guy?
The suspicion here is that there was no competent Rov/doctor involved in the decision.

You can always find an off shoot no name person to give you heter, even when every mainstream doctor and Rov are very strong about the widely issued guidelines.

A "private psak" doesn't mean the doctors'/Rovs' name is private. It means the psak was intended for that person only.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
is this the only why to reach the mayor? AskTheMayor@thelakewoodscoop.com  is there another email with gov domain?
Don't waste your time. Almost every question/suggestion in that column is easy to fix/address (they only print the easy ones, duh) , yet almost none of them actually get done.

Almost every response goes like this "I will reach out to the police chief/DPW/traffic & safety to look into the matter"

They should do a follow up a column of all the "ask the mayor" questions from the past year, and post the outcomes of all the suggestions and questions that the mayor was going to "ask the chief to look in to" etc.

Correct. TLS isn't hefkervelt. It's marketed as a professional news site catering to all sects.

Re: New Coin Deal
Did you hear that some buying groups are offering around $500 commission!!! Insane. Gneiva
Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but we just went through this discussion in the Nike sneaker thread.

BG's offer an opportunity for you to make money. If you feel you can do better on your own, no one is stopping you.
More rish = more reward. Many people (like myself) prefer the less risk model.

if you choose to take advantage the opportunity being offered by the BG, then it's obviously worth it for you. Not sure where genaiva comes in.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread
I know a guy who gives great haircuts in his house for $15. PM me.
Standard barber shop price in Lakewood is $16-18. So I wouldn't call $15 cheap.

Your best bet is to walk in to any local yeshiva and ask who the barber is, what he charges, and which night he gives haircuts.

They plug tires but if they are busy it wont be a priority. Was $25

Chaveirim can plug a tire as well. Give the money you would pay as a donation
Chaveriem is meant if your stuck. If you cant wait, or cant make it to the tire repair shop then call them. They don't prefer that you call them and donate $25 when you can instead have it done on your own by a local tire repair guy.

You implied that it's possible to have a "typical candidate for FIRE that happens to be frum".

My response was that's it's very difficult to be frum and be a candidate in the way that you described it (income of $100-250k between spouses)

Explain tuition.... schools just landed billions in PPP, plus more billions from food packages/bread lines, plus billions in grants for plexiglass and hand sanitizers. They'll never admit they don't need my money anymore, but why would tuition increase?
No dinners, parlor meetings, and various other fundraising functions.
