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 don't get it.
Was the cpa part of the scam planning?
When did he "chap" that it's a good idea to "protect the principal"?
When did he get scared off and decide to shut it down?

We will probably never know, but he may have saved people from this.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

It may have been shut down because ppl reported it not necessarily because they shut it on their own

An administrator at a Lakewood school told Matzav.com dryly, Its called the Bogo Fund, but it might has well be called the Bogus Fund.

When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

I would urge anyone who invested to contact youfunded asap and ask for them to freeze the funds.

Thanks to the awareness that this ended so quickly (actually kind of impressed with my town) hopefully the naive ones will get their money back

Hopefully it was a learning experiment also.

In regards to "why lakewood?"...I don't have a complete answer, but I'd imagine it's less likely in a smaller community, where things are more centralized, and it's easier to verify. Lakewood is one of the bigger frum communities, so it's easier to think, "oh, maybe it's the OTHER school that's cooperating with this, etc.
