Write a letter to the editor...
That's a good idea. Free publicity. Which publications are willing to publish letters that aren't following up on an article?

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.
Thanks Definitions! It's a good start! Gotta work on the wording though... On my draft, I wrote a bit much, it needs to be written way better... Sharp and using the fewest words possible.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Ami or Mishpacha write a full blown article regarding this, soon enough....

Maybe:
"Have you seen such an ad?"
include a sample ad with identifying info redacted
"Here's how it works"
with red arrows pointing to the various parts explaining it,
"Here's what you need to know"
explaining how this could go, and has gone, downhill.

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."
It would probably be best to also email/text them this. In case the time ever came that you need the proof in writing that you didn't authorize any charges after that date.

Here's the draft ad!! Any comments/critique welcome!! If anyone is good at proofreading, I can send you just the wording. Let me know. I know there's so much more to say, but we gotta just deliver the underlying message, and I feel this does the job!

i would change the font of the words in the block boxes; to me it doesnít have a serious enough feel to it. Get what Iím saying?

Always leave a paper trail to protect yourself.

Please spell check, there are a couple of capitalization mistakes. Also "have been lost BY not TO" in the opening sentence. Also maybe run it by an experienced marketing person to fine tune the effectiveness...

Ye, It's just that I'm using a very limited online graphics program (postermywall), I can't italicize, bold or underline 1 single word... So every small change takes a looooong time.
