Listening now to the Brenner interview for the first time.

A few takeaways so far.

1. I say um too much.
2. It does sound like AT is personally involved in $50MM+ of these cases, though which side for each is unclear.
3. AT says disputing can get you in criminal trouble as you affirming under oath that you don't recognize the charge, but an initial chargeback isn't an affirmation under oath. Of course it may come to that, but it should not be hard to at least initiate a chargeback without those repercussions.
I have no clue if Sterling on Central Ave in Lawrence is affiliated, but listen to how AT answers the question, it definitely sounds like he's hiding something.

Looks like this thread may need to get split off again.

Relevant question:
Was Sterling paying victim's CC directly, or were they giving checks for what they swiped?

Lol, but that's not the place in general. And some really delicious 33 cent pastries aren't going to save a Shwarma joint in a high rent space.

The space is amazing and I do still think it has potential. But it's not a good sign if 3 months in you haven't fixed your signature item.
Maybe Thursday night Cholent?

Lol, I just don't understand why invest so much in a business, but not fly an expert out for a week to show them the ropes.
Iíve heard they trained in a certain establishment on the east coast.

Iím not sure if Dan wants to discuss it on headlines or not, but people tend to bunch everything together and consider everything shady/shtick/scam/illegal. Sterling, farmers, buying groups, coin deals, MS,  a guy who opens a credit card for his Bro in law, a bochur who opens a cc and goes on a spending spree, and the regular family that has one 2% cashback Card thatís paid in full every month are all lumped together and before you know it, the entire Dansdeals is a scam.

Thereís nothing illegitimate about chasing signup bonuses and paying off your balances in full on time.

I know people may not want to post, even with a new screen name but I am curious if the "old timers" (or ones doing this for years) suffered a net loss. Many may have still come out way ahead if this went on long enough (this thread was started 4 years ago). People have mentioned being out 200k from a couple months of non-payment so they were having huge amounts swiped.  Like in a Ponzi scheme, the most recent "new" people definitely got screwed but unlike a ponzi scheme the original investors got their principal back every month AND profited from the points.  My brain is too tired...lol...but you could make a simple equation and just figure out how long the swipers would have needed to do this to not have had any net loss.
You're assuming 100% of the points earned were sold. I'm sure many of the victims burned a lot of the points on flights and hotels.

-1 People made lots of money off the points, and they're only risking their Credit. If they have no plan on buying a house... then it might have been worth the risk. People made $15k every 6 weeks.  I would probably risk my credit for that, if I assumed it would go on for months or years.
Like others have mentioned itís nearly impossible to earn $15,000 every 6 weeks while risking only one persons credit. Thatís $750,000 on a 2% card. Nevertheless, your point stands.

I'm going to be interviewed by him tomorrow.
What topics should I bring up?
IMHO:
Besides the topics others have mentioned:
1) Huge misconception: You can just dispute anything.
2) if you wouldnít hand over a suitcase of cash, donít give out your CC
3) stay away from farmers
4) the difference between a secured loan and unsecured

How bout google?
google actually did better than usual:

1. If you were told "do not tell anyone" or "it's a secret" - immediately run away from the deal.

2. All promises such as "safe profits", "zero risks", are at best imaginations.

3. Promises for "big profits" are fantasies or cheating (such things can only happen in drug deals or weapons and for that they do not need you).

4. Remember that a person who wishes to lie will distance his proposal (bless the Jews that his assets are close to the city).

5. The investments offered in the newspapers in the face of advertisements or small ads, ranked from very suspicious and certainly cheating.

6. If you find a contradiction. Hole or rendering in the words of the bargain offeror or a phrase like "You will not understand", is a cheater.

7. Never invest in a young student in the twenties.

8. Even a well-known trader who suddenly offers investments seems to find himself in trouble and exploits his record and his name.

9. Never run away from a sudden meteor that starts giving big sums to charity or driving in a luxury car.

10. If he is involved in the deal, even one dubious person, no matter what form, fled immediately. Do not think you're going to get some cheating, embezzlement, or theft with him. He'll steal you.

11. Those who need to reach small investors like you, is in difficulties.

12. Even if others have already profited from it, it is still "his investment" or in the process of entanglement.

13. If there are errors in contract writing or writing rules (also negligible) in English, there is no need to explore more.

14. There is no investment without documents, there is no Oral Law in business.

15. Do not sign a deal without a reliable lawyer on your behalf, and not an attorney that he offers.

16. Never sign before a few days pass, even if "the deal will probably run away." At least the money will stay with you.

17. Do not make a deal that your wife denies.

18. Never make a deal without consulting a person who has no interest: a rabbi, a rabbi, a good friend (he will surely invalidate 90 percent of the proposals)

19. If your rabbi is spoiled with a reason, the reason should not be correct, the very negation is correct (he can not always tell you the real reason)

20. Merchants (games, gamblers) in shares on the stock exchange - Stay away from them on any level.

21. People with "internal information" about "certain shares" are held captive by false beliefs. If it is true, do not need him and you.

22. Consider if you can be: at your investment of $ 20,000. Until the money reaches the destination, through the agent and the sub-agent, etc., ten thousand dollars remain for the investment. If the expectation is 100 percent, that is, 40 thousand dollars, is to earn 400 percent (since the business has only reached ten thousand dollars). All this is after taxes (40 to 35 percent), levies, currency swaps, office management expenses, CPAs, lawyers and profits that the 'big trader' has to earn - that is, no less than 800 percent.

Absolutely true. But with the right buzz (on WhatsApp groups). A podcast to go around (or excerpts) and a transcript, they will find out about him. He's definitely respected and does a good job.

IMHO: A large percentage of the kind of ppl that are vulnerable CC swipers and farmers would be very easily reached with a short video that would get sent around to everyones family chat, neighborhood chat, yeshiva chat......
