I’m Felixsha a 33 year old Air Force Veteran and a single mother of two; a son 11, and a daughter that’s 6. I have a Master’s degree in Accounting and have worked in the field for about 5 years now. I’m embarrassed to beg for money as I’ve always been independent but I have to put my pride aside as I will be getting evicted in the next day or two. Which would leave me and my children and my sick mother homeless for the holidays. This all started a few months ago when I lost my job and spent my savings on legal fees when someone I considered like family and tried to help took advantage of my kind nature. I was given a check to cash via my account and withdraw the funds for them because they claimed they had no local bank and it would take days for them to send the check to be deposited to their account and they needed the funds quickly to avoid been evicted. So I did what I felt in my heart was right, because I would want someone to help me if I was ever in a situation like that. Well the check turned out to be a fraudulent check and me and my children and mother paid and are still paying a hefty price. The situation has made it difficult to secure another job and as a result I’ve not paid my rent in over 2 months. To survive I got rid of my vehicle to cut down on my financial responsibilities and I’ve used my VA disability check and support from family and close friends to get by. Things are slowly beginning to change though as I’ve decided to start my own Bookkeeping and Tax services in my area from home. I just need help to get my past 2 months rent paid ($2900) late fees and court fees ($720) and $200 to register my new business with the state.
Thanks in advance from the bottom of my heart for your consideration, prayers and/or your donations.
