This is the message he supposedly sent to all his people (victims?)

G**** N****** 646*******
Iím confused.... this is this guy?? 👇
Another disaster waiting to happen. People never learn.

Letís rephrase this: ďWe use the card monthly. We pay the bills- until we donít and you get stuck with 100k in credit card debt accross you and your spouses cards. Then you call up the askanim and cry why didnít anyone spread the word about the danger of doing this?Ē

[snip]

What an epic, unmitigated disaster.  I feel terrible for those affected.

Though its not worth much, I do appreciate that at least he is attempting to maintain communication, and while his email does seem to address most FAQs, it would have been beneficial had it been given a once-over by someone whose first language was English.

Odds that these folks see 100% on their money (or something even close to that) is not high... especially considering the e-mail makes it clear that they took the initial monies to recover from previous bad investments and let the situation compound.  I don't want to say it, but seems like something that rhymes with fonzee.

I really do not understand how people fall for this. I guess it is a combination of greed and ignorance, where is the risk/reward in this? These are all planned scams .

People are desperate, and believe all frum Jews donít steal. Considering that many do, itís a big problem.

This story is so sad. Just plain uneducated "businessmen".

They don't have a bad bone in their bodies, they just couldn't run numbers.

He doesn't even hide that part.
 

At the beginning the money was to help us get through a couple of bad investment deals.

Wrong. They bought a failing business and sunk lots of cash into it. And they were being advised by very competent "accountants" in our community.

I had a guy call me a couple days ago if i want to swipe his card and give him cash, he doesn't know me, no clue where he got my number from, but this just shows how easy people allow others to use their cards and potentially scam them with tens of thousands of $$$$.

Not sure if this post is meant to be sarcastic or not.... but if I understood the story correctly they never asked to borrow money from their victims.

Not sarcastic at all. They had investors, and basically they came knocking, so in order to keep the place running, they borrowed on peoples cards.

Business School should be mandatory for every single guy who wants to go into "געשעפטן", as much as Yeshivah is.
