Urgent notice from the Tomchei Tzedaka of Lakewood

An individual came collecting today here in Lakewood with his gabai. He claimed to be the Av Beis Din from Netanya and that he has a bunch of Kollelim that he runs. When someone gave the gabai an $18 check this Rebbe starting screaming at him for taking it, said he is too choshuv for $18 and gave it back.

We are quite sure that this is Shlomo Yechezkel from Netanya, an individual to whom we issued an ishur in 2007 based on a reference from someone here in Lakewood. Subsequently, our Israeli contacts cast very serious doubt on his story. In addition, his claims to be a Mikubal and Poel Yeshoes is a cause of laughter to our Israeli counterparts.

Please do not give this person any money based on his old Tomchei Tzedakos ishur. Furthermore, if you have any further information about him, please let us know as soon as possible. He is very choshuv-looking, wears a down hat and has a long white beard.

Thank you,
Tomche Tzedaka of Lakewood
