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.

Vs Boro Park, Crown Heights, LA, Miami, etc, etc?
Why do you think there are fewer in BP? WHich scam was in Lkwd but not in BP?

CH, LA, MIA are definitely more centralized in the sense that such things would be more verifiable.

Why does it seem like there is a disproportionate number of scams originating in Lakewood versus other Jewish communities?

Am I incorrect?
The bias you have against Lakewood and the way you try to bash it in any given opportunity is really reprehensible. I'm not saying that Lakewood doesn't have its faults but you take it to a new level.

As I wrote earlier it is simply not the case. Which scam originated from Lakewood? The only possible one I can think of is the CC farms which seems to be unverified as a scam as of yet. You say that they seem to originate in Lakewood. check your premises.

They are not necessarily originating, but many in Lakewood are falling victim. The only one of these which may have originated in Lakewood is the CC farms. Ambit, Sungames, Viridian, My Harvest America, and this are not lakewood based.

I just called the number.
It seems that they are still taking money over the phone.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

LOL. Defensive much?
When did I say anything against Lakewood? And at "any given opportunity" no less?
FWIW, I was very impressed when I was there.

i think two reasons
1) at least i can speak for Los Angeles you can call a couple of rabbonim who are all in tune with these types of things and find out right away where as Lakewood has many more people who people would consult who have their own opinions

2) i dont mean this offensive so i please noone get upset from this i think yeshivish/kollel type people which lakewood has a much larger number of are more naive the baalabatim type people you find in other cities

your facts are wrong. MHA was bigger in Monsey. Ambit was bigger in NY.

Fair enough, my perception is only based on DDF/DDFB, not boots on the ground.

The demographics of gullible "in towners" vs "out of towners" on DDF is disproportionate to real life, IMO.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
