Mi K’amcha Yisroel: In under 24 hours, Lakewood community raises full amount of money lost by scam victim

In response to residents looking to help a young Lakewood woman who was scammed out of nearly all her money, we set up a page, and the outpouring of support was tremendous.

Within 24 hours of losing nearly all her money, the money was back in her account – graciously donated by dozens of donors.

Some gave $5, some gave $10, and some hundreds of dollars – but it’s the Ahavas Yisroel that counts.

A goal of $8,100 was set – the amount she lost to the scammer.

In addition, after reading that she had no job, a local business-owner reaches out to TLS to offer her a job!
