We need way more pledges as well. $40 ain't buying anything
I say this only half jokingly, but if you turn it into a raffle of sorts, I'm sure you'd raise more.

Wouldn't it be helpful just passing the ad around on social media?

I think if we spend a little on these ads then we might save alot more by not needing charity, GoFundMe, etc campaigns for friends and neighbors that lost everything due to this

I already have 1 Lakewood paper offering a free ad (via a DDFer) , so that's a start! I haven't reached out to any papers yet...

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.

I hear...  I'm not someone that's good at that. But I am ready to chip in to whatever is needed to bring awareness. I know a few people first hand that got screwed over the years. And I actually tried warning them. But hopefully this PSA will help even one person.

Okay, here's the updated ad, which incorporates all of your suggestions except two of them. Some sentences have been changed a bit. If any of these changes are outvoted, he'll gladly switch it back...

Questions/opinions from the designer:
1. Does ehrliche need to be capitalized? 

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.

b. Dan's article begins with talking about how amazing points and miles are, which is a great way to start with DD people but kinda off-topic for someone who might've just seen an ad offering $10k or a tuition break for signing up for credit cards. 

c. Like another DDFer said, Dan calls this "The latest scheme that people are falling for" and refers to it as a scam, which might make someone just shut it out if it's their ehrliche brother-in-law or the guy that sits in front of them at night seder.

Print ads are important because many people who are attracted to these offers do not use social media/Whatsapp.

But ads are expensive, I highly doubt we'll get more than 1 or 2 if any.  That's why I think everyone should hang up this sign on their shul bulletin board.

In the first paragraph, instead of "you'll be left", perhaps write "you can be left".
