Hi, On behalf of other DDFers and myself, It would be great if we can help spread awareness on this credit card swiping epidemic! The heimishe daily/weekly papers in Boro Park, Williamsburg, Lakewood, Monsey are continuously running ads from these credit card companies offering up to $10k thru opening new credit cards (thankfully, there are less ads as of recently due to limited sign-up bonuses...), There are also ads for learning courses which is free if you give your social so that they can open credit cards, swipe, and take your points!!
In order to get this campaign running, we will need the following:
1. Ad wording and design
2. Donations/contributions
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!
Chaya L.

Maybe you can add a wiki which will show how much money was raised, hopefully we can create a snowball effect where many people will join in.
Donations should be handled by a trusted member (Dan, JJ, or any other member who has credibility with the members here), while the rest of the work can be crowd sourced.
Thank you for taking the initiative to get this started.

you got a free ad
Why did they write it as Dan, but don't mention that it's copied and pasted from Dan? Am I missing something?
ETA: I see the same is being discussed in the other thread.

I hope the question was rhetorical

Same reason they stole the LY ATC video and uploaded it as their own without credit and then got mad when I filed a DMCA.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

This just looks foolish because it's clearly you writing in the first person. Stealing a video is not as blatantly obvious to the unassuming reader

The last thing they have to worry about is looking unprofessional

I dont know if this was there the whole time but I see it now:

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
