Money Matters - Informing seller they are wrong about product description
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: I don't think there is any problem here. Anyone who would be interested in buying an old pair of tefillin would realise, as you did, that the tefillin were not made of wood, so I don't think he lost any bidders as a result of this misinformation.

As far as the seller not knowing the true nature of the object he was selling, in this case it would only be relevant if as a result of his ignorance of the product, he was being underpaid. It's almost impossible to put a price on an old pair of tefillin - it would very much depend on who wrote them, the condition that they were in etc. If he offered them for auction and no-one offered more than you, it's probably a fair indication of the price it's worth.

Money Matters - Shadchan payment
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer:
Assuming that Mrs Frankel actually contacted the girl (or her parents) to put the suggestion to her, and Mrs Perl contacted the boy (or his parents) to suggest this shidduch, Mrs Frankel, who suggested and gave information about the girl, and Mrs Perl, who suggested and gave information about the boy, share the Shadchanus, half each.
All those in between did not serve as shadchanim but merely passed on a name.
As with all the answers given on this site, this answer should not be construed as a Psak Din, since both sides have not been given an opportunity to give their side of the story, and so the answer given is for general guidance only. If the others feel that they deserve some shadchanus, they should approach a Dayan or Beis Din together with the parents, for a definitive ruling.
