Re: Mezuzah Fraud
That indeed seems to be the case here. Everything in life has 2 ways of looking at it. Especially safrus.
I understand that many have a hard time with the concept.
When I buy a mezuzah, I'm no expert, I'm relying on the sofer. If he's relying on opinions which are not widely accepted, he should explain that.
The sofrim have not been explaining that at all. Not even close. It's not necessarily "mezuzah Fraud" but it's dishonesty.

That really depends on whether it's שחיטת ליובאוויטש or not.
The main thing is to ensure that there's Bartenura for kiddush as I only drink ליובאוויטשער סחיטה.

Re: Mezuzah Fraud
Let me guess, you actually pay 75c per gartel. You buy a 1.50 gartel and cut into 2.
1. I rarely buy a gartel, as I don't lose them often.

2. I don't buy extra slim fit suits, so half a gartel won't do the job.

Re: Mezuzah Fraud
Thank you!
The amaratzus here is astounding.

Is that song as old as the letter from the CH Beis Din regarding STaM standards?

Re: Mezuzah Fraud
You can feel better, you got the order wrong. It's actually "Tatty, Mommy, and Hashem"
(Or "Abba, Ima, and Hashem" in the next repetition)

What if they have a Abba and a tatty?

I've been here for years and they will throw me under the bus ;)
I feel much better now.

Re: Nespresso - Master Thread
So the company came back to me and told me that the hashgacha is from the chief rabbi of bolonga, italy - i asked for more details, but if anyone out there knows about this hashgacha it'd be appreciated

They claim to be Italian roasted and Swiss made. If that implies that the packaging and sealing of the pods occurs in Switzerland, that is where the Hashgocho is needed. Unflavored coffee in and of itself does not require Hashgocho. The thing to find out is whether there are any potential issues in the process of making the capsules.

Re: Kosher, Kashrus and Hechsherim Master thread
ExGingi - the didn't come back to me with a name. google search turns up little and nothing useful. I am just being lazy - hoping that someone has more actionable info.

FWIW - these are all unflavored coffee, and I don't believe that Pressogno sells flavored capsules

So what you need to find out is if the facility that packages the capsules does only unflavored coffee. If that is the case, I think you should be safe, but as usual AYLOR.

Re: gmail hacked
Most of the advice above is pretty solid, thought I'd summarize and re-cap.

- As a few people mentioned above, turn on 2-factor authentication for your accounts that allow it - google, amazon, etc. - it just makes it one step harder to hack. Note, the 2FA Apps are safer than the ones that send a code to a text message.

- Obviously check your credit report, look for unauthorized accounts

- One thing that people may or may not realize - your e-mail account is your gateway to almost all of your online accounts. If someone gets access to your e-mail, they can essentially reset a lot of your account passwords without you even knowing about it.

- Try to change your passwords every couple of months, and don't use the same ones for different sites - once someone has your e-mail/password, they're likely to try multiple sites - i.e. amazon, ebay, paypal, chase, citi, etc. You may not have accounts or use the same passwords, but if you do, they've gotten easy access to more accounts.

- You could consider using a password manager as well.

- One more word to the wise - before you click any link in any e-mail, think about who sent it and why - if you get an e-mail from Bank of America that says your payment is late, but you don't have a BofA account - it might be a scam.
thanx for the advice
