IMHO it is a very good balance of warning people while remaining sensitive to those who are victims.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I hope this is not too detailed to get the attention of the media/law enforcement (if they otherwise wouldn't have known).

very well written- it seems that you do not want to emphasize on the story that just happened but unfortunately I believe this wonít sway people without more details of the actual story that makes it sound more realistic.

No idea what you're talking about. Nor do I know exact details, not that I think it matters too much.

I feel lots of people know these warnings but think that in their specific arrangement it wonít happen (too big to fail, Guy is heimish cousin, he gives lots of tzedaka etc...) with more details people will realize that these guys were not necessarily trying to scam and maybe good people at heart but...

Do you think there is any reason to ask a shaila about posting this?

I don't really think any post is going to stop someone like that. The point of the post is to stop someone who wouldn't realize what's going on otherwise and make them think twice about letting people swipe their cards. I think the post accomplishes that the way it is.
