Pesach program hotels the scam
« on: April 29, 2019, 11:49:05 AM »
With all the programs closing down 2 weeks before Pesach
Or with the owners fleeing in middle of Pesach ...
Or programs serving chumetz (example is the Splenda situation)
I think people should write which programs scammed people so it doesnít happen again

Splenda is Kitniyot at worst, and from what I heard, the oversight was by the Vaad, not the program.

Letís start a lashon hara hotline. Call in with your juiciest stuff. Seriously you are asking for something that will quickly evolve into לשון הרע שלא לתועלת. Figure out some other format (unless you are just trying to satisfy your curiosity).

.... even if the people running a program were truly unscrupulous, the same people will run a program the next year under a different name.
