Grand Bakery sign at 8th & Willow

9/1/2010:

Seems fishy to me

This sign posted at the old Grand Bakery location at 8th and Willow Avenues seems a bit bogus.

First of all, no business can possibly get an occupancy permit – especially since no construction permits have been posted and no work has been done. Additionally, to my knowledge – there is no such thing as a “City Of Hoboken Business Development Association.” And the kicker is – that if you dial this “200” area code – your call will end up in India – and all of a sudden your phone will be ringing off the hook with spam calls.

Anyone know what this “Ponzi” sign really is other than a scam?

I’ve never understood why people run Ponzi schemes and other garden variety scams. Don’t they ever just get tired of it? What does a typical work day consist of? Please just pick-pocket me the good old fashioned way- I don’t want to talk to you on the phone!

Maybe it will be a Social Security Administration branch office.

No doubt a total scam…..I know the owners of that building and they are honest people that are retired and elderly and would not let any scumbag open a place like that there. They don’t need the headache or the money…..

As for the City Of Hoboken Business Development Association…a total scam! Jersey City has an identical group that calls you first to see what your story is and then tries to solicit $100 from you. If you say no, they keep calling and coming by the business to solicit. I’ve seen this first hand at a friends business. Eventually they shake you down unless you play your cards right and stand firm and threaten with police action…….

In my friends case, they called several times and eventually showed up and made comments about making complaints about his business unless he paid…..he caved being he is from the suburbs and not street smart…..he got a Certificate of Appreciation and bogus receipt.

Either a scam or a test to see how many gullible people there are in Hoboken.
