Your guess is as good as mine...
what benefit do they get by not posting the origin, and what loss would they have if they did?
My guess is they just plain old arenít professional and donít think of these things 🤷‍♂️
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Back to business here... So we get things looking real on this project, can anyone volunteer on the writing and design? (i am not the best writer as you can tell...) We just need something sharp, minimal wording which gets the message across clearly. I feel like Dan's PSA post is too long for 1 page ad, and wouldn't register with most of the naive crowd who's ready to sign up for anything offering quick and easy cash!
I was thinking something along these lines:
 
WARNING! DON'T LET OTHERS SWIPE CREDIT CARDS WITH YOUR NAME ON IT!!
WE WOULD LIKE TO SPREAD AWARENESS TO OUR COMMUNITY REGARDING A SERIOUS AND ONGOING EPIDEMIC INVOLVING OTHERS SWIPING YOUR CREDIT CARDS...
{GIVE 2 OR 3 SHORT PERSONAL STORIES}
{LIST THE COMMON PLACES WHERE PPL GOT CAUGHT IN THIS MESS, AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED}
1. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE ADS OFFERING YOU "QUICK CASH, UP TO $10K BY SIGNING UP FOR NEW CREDIT CARDS!
2. DO NOT ALLOW A LEARNING COURSE TO TAKE YOUR LEGAL NAME & SOCIAL SECURITY # SO THAT THEY CAN OPEN CREDIT CARDS ON YOUR NAME, SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR THE COURSE!
3. DO NOT GIVE YOUR CHILDREN'S SCHOOL/YESHIVA YOUR LEGAL INFO. FOR A CUT IN TUITION
4. DO NOT GIVE YOUR MOSED/CONGREGATION YOUR NEW 0% INTEREST FREE CREDIT CARDS IN ORDER TO "HELP" THEM OUT OF  A  "PASSING MONEY SHORTAGE"- (CUZ YOU KNOW THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A MONEY SHORTAGE.. AND YOU WILL BE LEFT IN SERIOUS DEBT!)

IF YOU GOT ANYTHING MORE TO ADD, PLEASE DO SO! OR IF YOU CAN HELP OUT WITH THE WRITING, PLEASE CONTRIBUTE!

As for raising money, there is a wiki added, in which you can add your pledge, pls let us know how much you're willing to sponsor if all goes well. Once we have a concrete drafted ad, hopefully it give you all a greater incentive to donate for the cause!

1. "Swipe" indicates physical swiping. They don't only do physical swiping, they also punch in the CC numbers. This might seem obvious to a DD'er, but it's not so obvious to the general public. "Swipe or use" should cover it, or just "use".

2. "Fooled" is not necessarily the correct term. Some of these companies are buying group type places that buy merchandise with the card. The problem with using the "fooled" word is that the CC swiping guys will "debunk" the ad by showing the soon-to-be-victim that they actually buy merchandise and that it's not a scam. I would word it "Do not respond to ads offering you "quick cash..."

3. I would add: "If you have already given your credit cards to such places, EVEN IF THEY HAVE ALREADY "MADE YOU MONEY", call those places immediately and tell them to no longer place charges on your card and that you want those cards paid off. Once those cards are paid off, cancel and shred them."

4. You must state in as few words as possible what the danger is. "Yidden have been left with hundreds of thousands of dollars in credit card debt with NO CHOICE BUT TO FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY. No matter how "safe" they tell you it is, no matter how many times they tell you that "nothing can go wrong", they are lying and the outcome can be catastrophic.

Anyone who has leverage with any publication that publishes these ads should push them to refuse posting them. Removing them will be more helpful than publishing a counter ad once or twice.

Hard to tell them not to take $$$ for ads. I'd say if enough $ is raised, you can pay them to not accept the ads.

Hence the first words in my post. I'm sure there are plenty of advertisers on here

I put it into a picture. Added some things (which might not be 100% accurate). Might be too much of a wall of text though.

Nobody is going to take that seriously.
