PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others Over the past few months many stories have come to my attention of people swiping for companies or people, and getting scammed to the tune of $100k+ each.

I'm not saying you can't offer to put something on your credit card for someone, but be smart. Even the most honest trustworthy people can hit a rough patch and be unable to pay back.

The specific stories I've been told were of out right scammers. Some had a great reputation, and were part of a community.

Bottom line - At the very least, consider swiping for someone an investment with risk. Don't put down more money than you can afford to lose. Even million dollar companies go under. Ask yourself, are you really willing to risk $20-50k and up for a few points?

If you believe you can trust someone, you should still have a hard limit in the range you can afford to lose, and don't go over it. The guy has truckloads of cash? Then let him prepay you, or put the money in escrow.

This is a very serious matter. Lives have been ruined. You've been warned.

Please don't PM for details. They won't be answered

Please (Make and) Post your Kiddush Hashem-Honesty Story In light of all the recent negative coverage of the frum community I thought its important to make an extra effort to make a kiddush Hashem- especially in all honesty related matters.

Sharing your Kiddush Hashem or honesty story is in itself a Kiddush Hashem- and you are encouraging others to do the same.

I will start with my little story which occurred this week:

I dropped my Keurig water container and some of the parts fell off. I couldn't figure out how to reassemble the parts so I called Keurig customer service and the rep said as a courtesy they will send me a new water reservoir for free. (Cost about $30 on amazon) She asked for my shipping address and I actually cringed a little when I specified Lakewood as my town.

She said it would take 7-10 business days to arrive but I wanted a coffee now :)  so when I hung up the phone I tried again and was able to figure out how to snap back the parts and my Keurig was back in service!

My initial thoughts were- great! I fixed it and I will also be getting a free backup in case it breaks again! Surely a huge company such as Keurig won't care, and at the time it was really broken- so totally legit!

But then I thought again about all that's going on and remembered cringing when I mentioned 08701. I said to myself even if legally and Al Pi Halacha I'm perfectly entitled to take the free water container, I will still make an extra effort to be 1000% honest and in addition though there's only the slimmest chance I will get the same rep, maybe somehow it will get noticed and I can make a Kiddush Hashem.

I called back to cancel the free part and lo and behold I got the same rep! She said I remember you and thanked me for reporting that I had fixed it myself- and yes, she did cancel the free part shipment- but I'm still very happy I took a small step toward impeccable honesty and making a kiddush Hashem.

I hope this will be one of many stories to come.

A glass vendor
That would be the best bet.

Re: Car Lease Master Thread
Is it possible to transfer a Honda lease these days?
yes, i just researched this. takes time though. have the person whos giving you the car contact honda financial and provide them your information. honda will then send you the forms to fill out your personal info.
takes time as there is alot of back and forth with the mail. you could expedite it if you ship via fedex they told me

Re: Newark EWR Airport Parking Master Thread
Anyone know the current cheapest parking for Newark? Need to park for 10 days, old place I used to use on Groupon was around $60 after coupons, now it's $95. I've tried a couple online but all end up being over $100 with fees. I saw the post earlier about Extended Stay but I'd be arriving around 4am so would need a shuttle as well (though in theory if Uber from there was cheap, maybe that would be worthwhile).
Park in Elizabeth at an alternate side spot, I doubt the ticket is more than $35, Uber from the edge of Elizabeth to EWR is around $6 each way. We parked from Wed night to Tues morning in a Wed spot, but 10 days you’ll have to pay one ticket

Re: Rome Master Thread
The Pope of Rome was now in Abu Dhabi.  Greeted warmly by Dr Ahmad Al Tayyeb, who seeks the destruction of Israel. Why should a Jew be in the vatican of all places ?!?!?

Make sure not to go to Washington DC as I saw President Trump greeted warmly by Kim Jong Un who seeks the destruction of Israel.

Re: Ad Campaign for spreading awareness anti credit card swiping businesses!
Anyone who has leverage with any publication that publishes these ads should push them to refuse posting them. Removing them will be more helpful than publishing a counter ad once or twice.
Hard to tell them not to take $$$ for ads. I'd say if enough $ is raised, you can pay them to not accept the ads.

Re: Kavey El Hashem-Ein Keloykeinu.How come in every shul i'm always falling behind?
Like most sefardic minyanim.
I have long contended that the רבש"ע enjoys those better than the Ashkenazic ones.

And those who are in a rush leave early.
