What are Lakewood levels credit card debt?

The perpetrator here had a $15K write-off on his own credit report from BOA CC, for one. Why do you think they needed other peoples cards!?

???

The product was a hit until 30 others joined the listing, including 2 of the investors. Plus this product was limited in sales scope.

"Messed up accounting methods"

You're giving too much credit. I can't imagine they had any "accounting"

They did. But they refused to agree with their accountants accounting methods, they had their own spreadsheets which looked like ....

I live in Lakewood and have zero revolving credit card debt. To be paid off each month is a different story. I once opened a thread about that. Same goes for most people that I would know if they had CC debt. A couple have some higher debt levels. I know that some large gemachs in town ask before they lend if the person has any CC debt and will not lend to someone who does.

Sorry I just googled it. I live in Lakewood and have $0 CC debt too. Obviously i'm not referring to everyone, just to the median.
You realize the debt they’re referring to can be what credit card companies show reflected on their statements, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not paid off every month. In that case, Lakewood and Monsey probably have a very high rate of churners relative to the population, which would skew those numbers.

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

I think the income is skewed

For sure. You think random Joe Smith living in Utah on a 2 income household with maybe 0-3 kids and no Yiddish bills is on par?!

But then again what's the Lakewood income... Tomchei Shabbat is not reported.
