Boy, take a few days off the board and miss all the excitement!

I hope the original poster comes back. We all have different experiences and opinions, which is what makes this board work.

Only because this seems much more likely to be just a group of nieghborhood friends tossing around new ideas to help each other rather than some well thought out scam.

Keeping dimes in a jar in your own home under your own control is WAY different from handing fistfulls of $5 bills to someone else to "keep" for you.

Wow, I'm surprised people are being so negative.

I think it's great that you have friends that you are so open an honest with. I admit, I have concerns about giving someone what could potentially be A LOT of money to hold (especially if you are using cash, you could be getting a lot of $5).
Could you consider rotating the holder? I'm not sure if this is any better but it seems like a lot of pressure to be putting on one person? I'm not sure . . .

I don't know when is the last time faith in goodness got anyone out of debt, or any financial guru advocates giving your money to a neighbor.

So NOT where she --- or any of these people are coming from.
