These guys are so annoying, the illegal posters are everywhere. Lately I've been seeing them plastered on private property and inside rail yards. They are getting more and more brazen. The fines are something like a maximum of $300, but rarely issued. I bet each one of these are worth like $1000+ of free advertising so there's basically no disincentive

I contacted Queens Crap and they did a post on their blog about our ongoing problem in South Queens Village with these damn stickers and signs. I contacted my local Community Affairs officer at the 105th and she said they made one arrest for putting up stickers, but it hasn't done much. Whenever I walk my dogs I pull these stickers and signs down myself. I also have a rake which I use to knock down bandit signs off telephone poles around South Queens Village. I ride my bike around the area once a week and do this. Usually, people thank me, because they hate these signs and stickers as much as I do. The ones I can't reach, I notify 311 and the city will remove them.Queens Crap: Attack of the "Cash 4 Junk Cars" stickers in Queens Village

These folks actually are independent tow shops,in the hope of getting a cheap used car.

The tax break ,if any,is not much for the typical nyer.
And the classic cars for cash with the kids in the commercial, probably donate 10 0/0 to a cause.

Good racket. $$$$$.

K for k is a Jewish organization,allegedly.

So these guys in tow trucks, getting up aka graffiti,with a pole and super glue. It's as if there is a competition on who can go higher.

This is vandalism, just like some wheat paste Obey poster.

Used clothing is a similar racket. Free clothe, aka vintage, sold at used clothes.no one knows how much is ever shared with the needy

Yeah but that's just people being ignorant, the clothes drop off boxes don't say anywhere it's for charity and they don't pretend it is. They are for profit businesses that wash and resell the clothes

All of these car donation places are a bunch of scams where naive people foolishly donate to them. There are a lot of suckers in the world.
