Haredi Woman Allegedly Stole Hundreds Of Millions Of Dollars

Dina_wein_reis She gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to yeshivas. She donated money to terror victims in Israel. She was close to Marvin Schick. And Dina Wein Reis allegedly bilked major corporations out of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Dina Wein Reis enlisted her rabbi in her bid to convince a judge that she should not be required to wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet. Orthodox practice, the rabbi said, forbids women from wearing slacks or pantsuits. Summer was coming, Wein Reis's lawyer noted, and any skirt or dress shorter than ankle length would reveal the bracelet, which would complicate her efforts to get a new job. The judge agreed.

The alleged grifter who duped corporate giants
Some executives thought it was their lucky day when Dina Wein Reis called with a lucrative proposition. It wasn't.
By James Bandler with Doris Burke

(Fortune Magazine) -- Just before dawn last October, around 50 federal law enforcement officials mustered in front of a six-story Beaux Arts townhouse on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

The agents, wearing blue raid jackets, stood in the rain outside the home of 45-year-old Dina Wein Reis, a self-described businesswoman, film producer, and philanthropist. For at least 15 years Wein Reis had made a fortune by allegedly gulling dozens of consumer product giants, including Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and Hershey, in exquisitely orchestrated scams.

"We're here to execute a search warrant," an FBI agent said.…

Yes, let's hide the fact that she is a thief and embezzler, from potential employers.

Is this an open season on the frim or what?
Let the be "evenhanded" and sting someone else too. Like the Muslims who have 5 wives and 4 of those are on foodstamps and welfare as single moms. Or the illegal workers who are on welfare, pay no taxes, ship billions of $$ abroad, undergo no health check thus spreading TB and parasitic illnesses, and soon to be covered under Social Security payments while kicking increasingly poor Americans out of jobs.

Man, oh man. The skinheads and othe neo-Nazis must be having a field day with this: Another "Jew" defrauding millions of dollars. Haredi? I didn't know that Judaism permitted for fraud, theivery, lying, etc. If this was China, she would have one bullet put in the head, and her family would have to pay for the expense of that bullet.

She is an abomination as is her "rabbi" and any Jew who defends her in anyway.

Fascinating story. Nu, who is her Rabbi?

Charedim do not have homes in Westhampton Beach or collect antiques. I am not sure if your knowledge of charedim is limited, or you simply decide people are charedi once they get arrested just to advance your agenda.

She went to a haredi school and affiliated haredi.

Very wealthy usually non-hasidic haredim do sometimes move in those circles.

Where did you say Rabbi Schnier's shul was in the Hamptons? Oh yeah, I forgot. He's orthodox but not a frimmer yid.

Shmarya,

You mean because someone went to a charedi high school, they are automatically charedi as adults? I know people who went to charedi high schools who eat pork. And incidentally, Prospect was not as right wing back then as it is now.


state of the Jews,

Your response indicates that you do not know what the word charedi means. It does not mean orthodox, but rather is a term used to identify a very right wing version of orthodoxy. I suspect that even Shmarya would agree that Marc Schneier is not charedi. Of course if Schneier gets arrested, Shmarya will quickly change his mind.

In 1981, Wein graduated from Bnos Leah Prospect Park Yeshiva, an all-girls school

Prospect Park Yeshiva hashkafa is between Modern Orthodox and haredi, what used to be called 'gray hats', something similar to chofetz chaim. they do dress more sexy than Beis Yaakov but not as sexy as Beis Rivka...

weeping assistant recounted to the company's top finance official that Wein Reis had once handed her a pair of dirty panties and ordered her to put them in the hamper.

She can give it to me...

charedi or hse was orthodox

I bet you the charedi who eats pork is not a gonev

wow a very frum lady, don't they realize how sick this sounds

"Is this an open season on the frim or what?

Well thats not the purpose here is it. You can go on Newsvine and find plenty of debates on the other topics you mentioned, Muslim, illegals, Obamas credentials etc etc.
I for one am glad to have a to the point blog that lets me in on whats what in the Jew world.
Judaism needs to clean house mercilessly and the more that Jews of all walks know what the issue is the more voices can be raised to stop this total degradation into a tribe of ponzi schemers.

The problem is that these people are convicted by the media before being proven guilty in court because they are Jews, and accused of being a flight risk merely because there is a country of Israel on the map.
I wouldn't gloat too much.

tzadik of Monsey - that was a hilarious comment. She does appear to be rather nice looking, although the neshoma seems to be her fatal flaw.

What does it matter what hashkafa "they" have. It seems like all different groups of self proclaimed orthodox jews engage in deceptive business tactics and outright fraud. It's pervasive in the community. When people put more emphasis on whether you can carry an umbrella around on shabbat than whether its okay to steal and cheat others - you get this type of moral degeneracy. Or maybe they should switch allegiances to the god of mammonism.

Too bad she looks like the Crypt Keeper over here.

Whatever flavor of jew she is, she's still a lying jew. And to one of the poster's above, I'm white and yes I am having a field day with this. Just another example of the long line of jewish criminals who lie, cheat and steal.

To be fair these Jewish criminals look like pretty kittens compare to the vicious non-Jewish gangs out there. There are no Jewish MS13s...

This site has its purpose to help Jewish community to cleanse itself from the wrong.

As for the creeps like Mike above, you have to put things in perspective, which I doubt you can with your limited brain.

As for lying you and your kind Mike are the greatest liers and cheaters of all and you know it.

Ben well you might have forgotten you history.

Side note Oh I forget to mention maybe they all were innocent since they were arrested because of a Moser, so according to some all there killings do not matter

Murder inc
Methods

Most of the killers were Jewish and Italian gangsters from the gangs of the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Brownsville, East New York and Ocean Hill. In addition to crime in New York City and acting as enforcers for New York mobster Louis "Lepke" Buchalter, they accepted murder contracts from mob bosses all around the United States.

The killers were paid a regular salary as retainer, plus an average fee of $1,000 to $5,000 per killing. Their families also received monetary benefits. If the killers were caught, the mob would hire the best lawyers for their defense.[citation needed]

[edit] Founding

Murder, Inc., was established after the formation of the commission of the National Crime Syndicate, to which it ultimately answered. Largely headed by former mob enforcers Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel and Meyer Lansky, it also had members from Buchalter's labor-slugging gang (in partnership with Tommy "Three-Fingered Brown" Lucchese) as well as from another group of enforcers from Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York, of the late 1920s led by Martin "Bugsy" Goldstein and Abe "Kid Twist" Reles. Buchalter, in particular, and Joe Adonis occasionally, gave the outfit its orders from the board of directors of the syndicate. Albert "The Mad Hatter" Anastasia was the troupe's operating head, or "Lord High Executioner", assisted by Lepke's longtime associate Jacob "Gurrah" Shapiro.

It is alleged that Charles Burns, a police bodyguard of Reles was involved in the disappearance of Judge Crater in 1930.

In 1932, Abe Wagner informed on the syndicate to the police. He fled to Saint Paul, Minnesota and adopted a disguise to evade possible pursuit. Two killers, George Young and Joseph Schafer, found and shot him but were later apprehended. Bugsy Siegel failed to get them released.

In the 1930s, Buchalter used Murder, Inc. to murder witnesses and suspected informants when he was investigated by crusading prosecutor Thomas E. Dewey. In one case, on May 11, 1937, four killers hacked loan shark George Rudnick to pieces, on the mere suspicion that he was an informant (see below). On October 1, 1937, they shot and seriously wounded Buchalter's ex-associate Max Rubin. Rubin had disobeyed Buchalter's orders to leave town and "disappear" in order to avoid being summoned as a witness against Buchalte

Gotta love those mob nicknames!

Millions of illegal tax dollars funneled to the Agudah and Ohel.

Well, Seymour, that was a blessed time when we had Jewish gangsters. When during WWII German American Bund tried to have a pro-Nazi rally in the Twin Cities (Minnesota), they (the Jewish gangsters) came in with iron pipes, broke a few heads, and the Bund never had another rally.
BTW, the police were called but they failed to show up. This is my history and I am proud of it.

We could use some of those mobsters today.

The Westboro Baptist Church - an antisemitic hate group has obtained a permit to stage a protest against Temple Emanuel in Chicago at 11:15 today.

This is the same group that goes to the funerals of soldiers and screams obscenities at the mourners.

This time they are turning their attention on Jews.

A group of veterans (including a fair number of Jewish war veterans)that rides motorcycles and has sworn to protect military funerals from these protesters may be in attendance too.

Hopefully that will be enough to deter these psychopaths and keep them from showing up.

Temple Emanuel is at 5959 N. Sheridan in Chicago.

Too bad we no longer have Jewish gangsters around to greet them!!

Seymour, don't go 70 years back in history. I'm talking about today.

When did Albert Anastasia, Vincent Mangano, Louie Capone, Frank Abbandando, Harry Maione, Vito Gurino, John Parisi, and Anthony Maffetore convert to Judaism?

You also forgot Arthur Fliegenheimer, aka "Dutch Schultz" who was born Jewish and converted.

I saw her picture regarding an article in Fortune or the Fortune website, and in that picture she looks rather worn and haggard.

Hey folks, let's not wax too nostalgic for the Jewish gangsters of yesterday.
For every act of occasional largesse, there were many other acts where innocent people were terrorized, extorted, robbed or killed.

i met the Reises Dina & her husband David r absolutely frum, shomer shabbas, kashrus, daven 3 times a day with a minyan, send their kids to yeshivos etc... major baalei tzedaka incognito.

how did i miss the dirty panty story before? i think i know who one of her assistants was.

I could be a big ba'alei tzedaka too, if I was a scammer, a cheater, and a liar...

Umm.. WTF does Marvin Schick have to do with this? He is someone who is involved with many charities. She gave money to charities. Do you think it is responsible to malign him for knowing someone who turned out to be a scam artist?

Let's not get into racial slurs here. Jews are not above the law. Have you ever seen the movie "Above the Law?" Well, the difference between Steven Segal and real Jewish criminals is that he's not a criminal and he puts bad people away, dead or alive, in his movies. He is Jewish and he happens to be one of my favorite actors, not to mention the hilarious Jim Carey who is also Jewish.

The reason I say that Jews are not above the law is because some happen to be very good lawyers. And, many Jews are rich and can buy the best lawyers money can buy, whether the lawyers are Jewish or not.

But whoever agrees with the totally unacceptable rationality above where people are attacking Mike, you have crossed the line. Mike, I too am a white person and I find that this recent crackdown on different Jews is a good thing. I myself have been charged with the misdemeanor of theft and I really deserved going to jail. I payed for my crime and I'll never ever forget it. I don't have as much guilt on my conscience as I did before that incident. You see, going to jail is really a humbling experience. And prison is different ball game.

Point is that these Jews had it coming and it's quite rare to find a case of this magnitude pertaining to Jews. So, Mike, it is a field day because this is a democracy and no amount of money can get these Jews out of the trouble their in. And to those who attacked Mike, you are the dumb ones who actually thought that your brethren could get away with their illegal activities without anyone noticing. You are the dumb ones. How dare you insult Mike. Mike, as a one Christian brother to another, I'm with you all the way on this one. And for the Jewish response to my opinions, it's too late, the shit has hit the fan and finally some of yours are going to eat some shit.
