I had to steal money from my father to pay someone who convinced me that “cheap bitcoins” are a thing, as I truly only wanted to provide a secure life for me and my younger siblings after my mom passed away. I was in a disparate position, and I thought Bitcoins were our ticket off to immediate wealth, specially after my father got married, and he didn’t pay us much attention as he used to.
I took 5,000$ from my dad to invest them in Bitcoin, but the scammer never called back, and provided me with what was apparently a fake ID, as the police department told me when I went to file a complaint. I managed to work and save 1,500$, but now I still need 3,500$ to pay him back and breathe for a second.
I’m 23 years old, and I’m currently studying to get a masters degree in English Language and Literature from the Middle East University in Beirut, I also take care of 4 younger siblings and a pet, in addition to a job at a local barber shop.
My health is declining because of the stress this scamming process got me. My hair is falling, and I broke three molars as I’m constantly grinding my teeth due to constant shame, guilt, and stress. Put my life into ease, I want nothing but to pay him back. Please. I only need 3,500$.
