Was this S dude involved in MHA or any other shady stuff?
Does he think everything is legit?
I have a rising suspicion that although these people have done shady things before this time they are the suckers to a higher power . And it's possible they are the ones getting scammed now

Worth making a post on this crap or does it just legitimize it?
Either way it'll turn into a p$%^ing contest I'm afraid.
it's to late I'm afraid. I doubt any good will now for this specific case

What about a post on pyramid schemes in general?
I think this is the way to go . Maybe write up a post about these schemes and how they can be tempting to make easy money but they will come back and bite u

It would be a big chessed, if only one person is saved....

From a business POV, IMHO you can only lose from getting involved.

Lol a post on dansdeals that if there's a way to get free money, it is a scam.

precisely but without the sarcasm font.  Although the line between what we do and this is quite discernable, for some they just get caught up in the search for the free buck

you can close comments on the post. I don't think that you should discuss a specific case, but a general post explaining the difference between a deal and a scam might be helpful as suggested earlier.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

If the business plan is " even though it sounds too good you can't lose because you have protection from your cc" then it is a scam. I don't believe there is any cc protection when you know it is shady going in.

If you speak to anyone involved they'll tell you that they only got involved because they thought that they are covered by their credit card, and would be able to dispute.

And if they did as much due diligence on the company as they did on the cc policy...

I think it would be a humungous mitzvah to help wake ppl up and possibly save some of them.
I agree with closing the comments.

Don't post specific cases. People hear and see what they want to and you'll just be drawing attention to them

I can't even get past what the title should be.  Why do orthodox jews fall prey to stupid scams? Why do people fall prey to stupid scams?
Either way the post will feel pretty non-sequitur.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

you don't have to explain the why's and be critical.
Simply explain that "not everything is a good deal" it would fit better on ddms..
