2. While adding a website can be useful, I don't know if it's the best idea:

a. I think that getting a URL like frumcreditproject.com or something will look very professional on the ad, but then when someone visits it and it redirects to a DDMS post I think we'll lose trust at that point because presumably people would go online thinking that we're some organization with a website and info of our own, and just get redirected to someone else's article.
This is a good point but we can be transparent about it? "This ad was paid for by members of the dansdeals community. For more information on this topic, you can access the discussion directly at whatever.com". Again just a thought, not married to it.
I like this idea and will add my name to pledge B'N but thinking we would first like to know what the target $$$ needed is

In the first paragraph, instead of "you'll be left", perhaps write "you can be left".
"you'll be left" is a curse.
"you can be left" is the possibility. Even though it's less threatening.

It will be much more effective to make some sort of meme to go viral and link to Dan's article than an ad which won't reach nearly enough people and even of those who see it most won't even read it.
Anyone is welcome to create a video if they would like! An ad in the papers will definitely be seen and read by many! I also feel like we'll be seeing soon enough an article in the Ami or Mishpacha and that will further enlighten everyone.

3. and anyone who has connections to the papers to bargain a better price as these ads are very costly... Especially if we want to run a full page ad and be in the most papers possible. Being that this is an awareness ad, papers will hopefully be inclined to offer a better rate, a free ad would really be nice...
If anybody would like to contribute please reply, send me a PM, and let's make this happen!! Thank You dan for spreading awareness!

ďFeelĒ? Has anyone reached out to them to suggest they go with it?

I would guess that a disproportionate number of potential victims get their info from print media so I think you are on target with the print ad....

Like I said, I'm aiming for free or discounted ads, so hopefully the $$ won't be so relevant. If after reaching out to papers, depending on what they offer, we'll see how much it's costing and take it from there.

So maybe we can get dansdeals.com/CreditCardPSA? That solves that issue.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

How much are you hoping to collect for an ad to be published once or twice in a handful of publications?

Put that money into making a 1 minute video that can be shared on whatsapp and will be picked up for free by every website, that would have a far greater reach and impact.

It should be both.

Williamsburg/Satmar generally donít use smartphones/internet, especially the Yeshiva and Kollel Yungerleit. As others have stated, the warning should also be in Yiddish.

Also, Iíve suggested that the publications running ads for these credit card swipers need to be made aware that they are complicit in causing tremendous damage to Jews by allowing such ads. If people see such posters hanging in their shul or on lampposts and trees (which is common in Brooklyn) they should take them down. (Or ask someone with authority in the shul to take it down) This is the only way to eradicate this toxic practice.

most of these ads for signing up are in local papers or magazines and are obviously doing a great job attracting people that said i think a video would get a lot of views but its important to target the same places the scammers are

From the designer:

"Also, upon thinking about it more I think that we lose a certain level of professionalism and community-wide relevance if the sign associates with dansdeals. People might dissociate with it If they don't think DD is a thing"

Personally, I agree with guy who put together the ad to omit a link to dansdeals post. The ad itself puts forth the main message very clearly! And for somebody who mentioned to write 'paid for by...' nobody over here is looking for any credit/recognition in organizing this ad. Who's with me on omitting the link? And Leaving ad as is? (I think the guy is still making some minor final touch ups...)

Not saying who you are means that people wonder who is behind this and what their agenda might be.

It does say on the top in small letterings: 'Urgent message from concerned members of our community' Isn't that enough??
