**Note: If you don’t have a genuine intention to help, if you intend to deceive and give false hope and demand/steal money from me, PLEASE don’t even bother to get in touch with me!
If you are claiming to want to help but are really just trying to scam me to pay for a “refundable fee”, again PLEASE don’t even bother – I once fell into this trap because I naively believed in the “well-being” of a person who assured me he/she wanted to help, and in the end I paid dearly for it.
My name is Yerkebulan , I’m from Europe.
I want to emphasize that I feel uncomfortable doing this, but I am in a really difficult situation where I urgently need your help, because my family and I are going through a difficult time.
I lost my job in March because of the current situation (pandemic).
I worked/had a part-time job, and as a result I was struggling to pay my bills, rent and to buy food.
I tried to save some money, and have, but because I lost my job I had no choice but to spend it to survive the last couple of months.
I was forced to move back with my parents.
I am unemployed, my father is retired, my mother receives a disability allowance, and that hardly covers all the expenses (bills, food, health insurance).
My parents and I are in a tough situation because we are being sued for territory and plots by my uncle.
My father started building the house in the late 1970s, my uncle (his brother) joined him in the early 1980s. The house was completed in the late 1980s. But the relationship between the two changed for the worse when uncle’s partner moved in in 1991.
My father lived with his family on the first floor and my uncle and his partner lived on the ground floor. But uncle’s partner decided at the beginning of moving into the house that she was the owner of the house, even though she had not invested anything in the construction and furnishing of the house. Despite having a common entrance to the house and a common yard, we lived in conflict until 1997; you can only imagine what it was like every day.
When both realized that it was no longer possible to live like that, they decided to divide the common property. Upon the division of the co-ownership, they both arranged all the documents in agreement, each becoming the owner of half the house and the land around the house.
We lived in “peace” for almost 14 years. But everything changed about 9 years ago when my uncle started to listen to his partner’s demands to take as much property as possible, the one that my father is the rightful owner. Uncle and his partner have been suing us since 2011, because they claim that my father has a larger share of the house, even though my uncle has 65% and my father 35%, which is confirmed from the land register. The court rejected their lawsuit each time. But last year, in 2019, because my uncle’s lawyer bribed a judge, the court “gifted” him parts of the plots my father is the legal owner of.
We need to hire a very good lawyer as soon as possible, but that does not come cheap.
Due to all the lawsuits that have been going on for 9 years, we have accumulated a considerable debt that is difficult to repay.
Also, I have a student loan which is not fully repaid.
I know this is too much to ask, especially with everything that is happening, and a lot of people have lost their jobs, but we are in need of a total of 20.000 EUR.
To get back on our feet we would need at least 5.000 EUR; but any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance to all of you who took the time to read my request for help (I know I wrote the whole essay, but I wanted to describe in detail the situation my parents and I are in), but to those of you who chose to donate, words cannot describe my gratitude.
All the best,
