Topic Wiki

Bogo walks in a room and announces that we're almost at the end, so double your money now* before it's too late! He claims there are people vouching for him, but they have never heard of him.
ExGingi talked to Bogo for a minute and let's everyone know that he knows what he's doing. Except maybe that was for another Bogo thing he's doing that may or may not MLM related. Or something like that.
Baruch won't stop calling Bogo a liar and ExGingi a fool and a liar. He's gone over to everyone and tells them this at least dozen times.
Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. It's parve, exactly how ExGingi likes it. JJ didn't tell Freddie he was in the room as he doesn't like parve cholent or MLMs. This makes him a shvantz.
Dan is waiting for a juicy voicemail or at least an email to put in this thread. Dan loves Lakewood and was very impressed with it. Dan hates Lakewood and bashes at every opportunity {{Citation needed}}

JJ finally did teshuva. It remains to be seen if others mentioned on this thread will follow his lead.

*as long as you're from Lakewood.

I stand corrected then, targeting.

Why don't we see these in CLE for example?

It's actually not such a hot seller. Only 135k. We're not the suckers ZB thought we were.

Very confidence inspiring. I introduced a bad product to Lakewood and profited off of them losing thousands of dollars, but now I learnde my lesson so trust me now with millions. Why? Be cause I say I learned my lesson. How do we know that the poor business accumen has improved? He says so!
This is exactly why I said he is shooting himself in his own leg.

I think the actual BOGO loyalty program might have potential. There is definitely nothing to be lost by joining it. Just think of earning points for spending you already do, if it doesn't work out and the points end up worthless, did you lose anything?

However as I have said before, I know nothing about this "tuition match" that he's offering, and suggested not to give any money unless the school would accept it towards tuition obligation.

I am דן לכף זכות and don't think there is malicious intent involved, nor do I think there was such with his promotion of Ambit (though I have no idea how cbc gets the idea that I've ever endorsed Ambit, nothing can be further from the truth).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

However, even the best most legitimate business concept could fail. I hope he does succeed (he is a Yid and definitely has good intentions) though as said above, if he gets introduced to the community through what looks like a half baked good idea, he might simply be shooting himself in the leg.
You ever hear about the kosher switch? Where is CM when we need him?  >:(

Which is why I said check with the schools.

I am drawing a line between his BOGO loyalty business venture and the "tuition match". The business venture has potential (though I still have some unanswered questions), the tuition match is something on which I would rather not speculate.

Whoever is contributing; I hope they're using a good credit card for when dispute time comes...
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It's a donation, wonder how successful a dispute will be.
