This is kind of embarrassing for me as I’ve also been the person people have come to for support and help I have never turned away from anyone but it seems like I have no one to help me when I am in need, a few years back I took a family member in because they had no where to go, I fed them clothed them put a roof over their head all I asked for was they seek professional help to get them back on their feet but what I got back was credit cards taken out under my name, catalogues and loans this initially resulted to around £20000. believe it or not the family member in question was my brother he had fled and moved to a different city leaving me in debt I could not afford I was living with my partner at the time and my daughter who was only 2 my priorities went from just the rent and food and bills to also trying to clear all the debt, I have struggled and struggled with no help offered, I barely drink I don’t smoke I don’t do drugs I work 50 hours a week have my daughter 4 days a week because me and my then partner have split due to the stress of all of this I have had to move back to my parents house. I still have to pay my way but I just can’t not see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I love my brother considering the hardship he has put me in I will never forgive him for what he has done it’s not just financial hardship i have I am now suffering depression, anxiety and sleep deprivation due to all the worry I’m scare someone will knock on my door and demand my personal belongings or my daughters that I just can not give.
Even with everything my brother has done I have not gone the police because he is still my brother I have cleared about £10,000 of the debt leaving me with about £10,000 left I know this is a long shot but the way I’m feeling I am willing to try anything right now.
If there is anyone out there that can help I promise I will return the favour. I just want my life back I want to be able to open my mail and not worry about a debt collector or a ccj coming through the door I want to be able to start saving again for a mortgage so my daughter can say that my house. I want give a real smile instead of pretending everything is okay.
I have attached an email that I have received on a email address my brother has created that is just one there are another 17 just like it from quick quid to littlewoods, capital one, loans2go and others.
Please help even if it’s advice I am open to anything.
