Probably too late to jump on the bandwagon. There's some chatter from sources outside the points/ MS community about Amex looking at taking some course of action, but its just completely unconfirmed chatter right now. They are slow so even if true this will take a while to play out, especially if it involves legal dept. but best guess is that this avenue is winding down in the short term.

very valid point.  But don't you think that it's a bit over the top to write  let's take this guy to a dark alley?! Maybe the guy is honest. You gotta be careful before writing stuff like that IMO.
it was not intended in actuality

I guess you mean proxies etc. Amex is not stupid. It's easy enough for them to feed these guys a few "customers" and simply follow the trail. sounds like they are playing with fire if yzj is correct. BTW, the ad is on the cover page of the weekend Hamodia that came out today. $5000 for individuals, $50,000 to $100,000 per shul.

Forget amex, it might be the mail and wire fraud guys that will be doing tracking...

Amex will have to crack down with all this publicity.
Greedy idiots.
Only thing missing is a front-page ad in the NYT

site ad can disappear in seconds... (still risky) a paper's cover page is in print forever...

Do you have a single posek who corroborates what you said in that thread?
There is a fascinating sefer called "Ha'check Be'halacha", two volumes. He thoroughly analyzes modern banking transactions as they apply to Choshen mishpat, Y"D, O"C and E'H. With many sources from contemporary poskim. Very interesting read !
