What's the story with the yard signs all over town about a free gemach to pay off cc debt? Scam?

From what I've heard they are a credit consolidation company.

They are saying that the gemach ran out of money but since you have CC bills we can help you another way.

Just an underhanded marketing ploy.

Not that it makes it any better, but a friend of mine met him and the guy showed him that there was a substantial amount of money in the gemach that was given out interest free...

1) what does that mean he "showed him"
2) if there is no gemach money left why are they putting up more signs offering an interest free loan

1) Showed him a homemade list, not a notarized document.
2) I'm not validating him, FWIU it was and still is an underhanded marketing ploy to get customers.

You got used to the summer's light traffic.

That and September is always the worst (even with normal bussing years). Many schools don't have bussing for at LEAST the next 2 weeks so expect loads of traffic.
