Nice Story During the Holocaust, a large group of Jewish women were rounded up to be sent to the gas chambers. As the group gathered their possessions to take with them into the camp the evil Nazi officers called out to all the villagers who were standing by watching, "Anything that these Jews leave behind you may take for yourselves, because for sure they will not be coming back to collect them!"
 
Two Polish women who were standing nearby saw a woman towards the back of the group, wearing a large, heavy, expensive coat. Not wanting to wait to see if others got the coat before them, they ran to the woman and knocked her to the ground, grabbing her coat and walked away. As the Jewish women were being led away, these two Polish women lay down the coat to divide the spoils of what was hiding inside. As they rummaged through the pockets, they discovered gold jewellery, silver candlesticks and other heirlooms, but still, as they lifted the coat it seemed heavier than it should be. After further inspection they found a secret pocket, and hidden inside the coat was a little baby girl. Shocked at their discovery, one of the women insisted to the other, saying: "I don't have any children, and I'm too old to have now. You take all the gold and silver and let me take the baby".  The deal was agreed and the Polish woman took her new 'daughter' home to her delighted husband. They raised the Jewish girl as their own, treating her very well, but never told her anything of her history. The girl excelled in her studies and became a successful paediatrician, working in the top hospital in Poland.
 
After some years the girl's 'mother' passed away. A week after, she received a knock at the door. An old woman invited herself in and said "I want you to know that the woman that passed away last week was not your real mother..." and she proceeded to tell her the whole story. The girl did not believe her at first but the old woman said to her "When we found you, you were wearing a beautiful gold pendant with strange writing on it which must be Hebrew, I am sure that your mother kept the necklace, go and look" and with that parting advice she left.

The girl went into her 'mother's jewellery box and found the necklace just as the woman described. She had it extended and wore it every day, but thought nothing more of her Jewish roots.
 
Sometime later, she went on holiday abroad and saw two Lubavitch boys. Seizing the opportunity she told them entire story and showed them the necklace. The boys confirmed that a Jewish name was inscribed on the necklace but did not know what to say about her status. They recommended that she send a letter to the Lubavitch Rebbe explaining everything. She sent off the letter and received a speedy reply saying that it is clear from the facts that she is a Jewish girl and since she had a special talent, she should use her invaluable skills in Israel, a place in desperate need of talented paediatrician's.
She took the Rebbe's advice and moved to Israel where she approached a Beis Din who declared her Jewish. She was accepted into a hospital to work, and she met her husband and raised a family.
Some years later...
When there was a terrorist attack at the Sbarro cafe in the centre of Jerusalem in August 2001, this woman was walking nearby with her husband. She told her husband to return home to the kids and she proceeded to rush to the scene where she treated the wounded and helped the injured to hospital.
When she arrived at the hospital she met an elderly man who was in a state of shock. He was searching everywhere for his granddaughter who had become separated from him. She calmed him down and went with him to search amongst all the patients in order to find his granddaughter. Asking how she could recognize her, the frantic grandfather gave a rough description of a gold pendant necklace that she was wearing. After searching amongst the injured, they finally found the granddaughter who was wearing the necklace. At the sight of this necklace, the paediatrician froze. She turned to the old man and said: "where did you buy this necklace from?" "You can't buy such a necklace" he responded, "I am a goldsmith and I made this necklace.  Actually I made two identical ones for each of my daughters. This is my granddaughter from one of them, and my other daughter did not survive the war"
 
...And this is how the Jewish Polish girl was reunited with her father.

Misc Credit Card Questions How about a place to bounce random "credit card" questions off of the crew. I will start:

When does the AMEX Blue Cash Preferred $6k on groceries reset? is that based on the calender year? Is there a way to know if you have already hit the max on it?

Re: Hard Inquiry - Bankof
hi

i called to the number back of my card to have a increase of my limit, i specifically ask a few time to the rep if i will have a Inquiry (didn't mention hard or soft) for that, she told me NO.

and now i login to 'credit sesame' and it show me a hard pull form Bankof !!

so i called and speak now to a specialist credit (this what she told me) and she told me that they will lessen to the tape of my call in, and if i am right they will turn the inquiry from Hard to Soft.

she will call me back after the week-end with the result

my question is : do i can force them to take it off completely ? and if yes how ?

or what other option i have here ?

Thanks !

* it is a BankAmericard CASH REWARDS VISA

The option is to have it turned from hard to soft, and for your purposes, doing that is what you want. If they do that, you're good.

Re: Getting A Green Card\US citizenship
it's not clear from the letter, but i think it doesn't matter, hopefully we will receive the 10y before the end of the 1y

Why wouldn't you apply for citizenship before then?

Re: Misc Credit Card Questions
I have a Bankof Cash Rewards open in 2014 (was 1 of my first card) I rarely used it, the anuall fee on it is $39, I just realize that they offer the card with no fee, I called and was told by 2 agents that they can't remove the fee ..

what are my best option ?
For $39 it may be worth keeping it for now.
Is this one of your older cards? If yes, does it lengthen your 'age of accounts' significantly? then keep it open.
Does this have a large credit line? If yes, do you have another Bankof card that you can move the credit line to if you close this one?  If not, keep it open.


If it doesn't age your history or if losing the credit line is not a big hit, just close it and don't look back.

Re: Rubashkin freed from prison.
IE
This explains everything. You should put it in your profile, so anytime someone is about to argue with you, they'll see, "oh, he uses IE. Never mind."

Re: Questions and Help for BEGINNERS!

hi, what is the best way to do a "direct deposit" to avoid the BankOfAmerica monthly fee of $12..

- my work doesn't offer that.
- i can't switch a bank for now.

i found this : https://www.doctorofcredit.com/knowledge-base/list-methods-banks-count-direct-deposits/#Bank_of_America

but i don't have Serve, i have the redbird (target) so if i understand i need to deposit cash inside in a Target store and then send an ACH to myself ?

or i could put with my Bankof debit card as usual ?

or you have/know a better way.

thanks in advance!

There is the option of $1500 daily minimum balance, or you can open a business account and do your own direct deposit (then you'd have to deal with waiving that monthly fee), and interestingly enough it seems like Robinhood works as well, that should be easy.
