Hi, my name is Andy.
Earlier this year, I started an online relationship with a Single Mum (let’s call her Sarah). We really hit it off. But Sarah has had a series of not very pleasant boyfriends. She has been abused and cheated on by a number of her ex-partners. Naturally, she wanted to take things slowly, so we have been texting each other for months now.
Sarah was living in temporary accommodation with her son (let’s call him John) when we first met. She was on the waiting list for a council flat. She was desperate to move on with her life, and to provide a better life for her son.
Eventually, she had some good news! A council flat was available for her! The only problem was, she didn’t have any money to furnish it.
Thankfully, I had enough financial flexibility to come to her rescue. I used my bank overdraft, and I took out a loan, in order to help her get started… Things seemed to be looking-up for her.
Unfortunately, this is where things took a turn for the worse… Now that she had a permanent address, her previous debts caught-up with her. Suddenly, she was £16,000 in debt, with no job and no means of paying it herself.
To solve this, I took out a second loan, and paid her initial installments so that she could start payment plans to deal with the rest of her debt. I could afford to do this, because I am selling my house this year and planning to use some of the equity to pay-off my personal debts.
However, just when we thought that everything was in order, another £6000 debt has arrived on her doorstep. The credit agency are unwilling to negotiate an affordable payment plan, and they have started to send Bailiffs to collect debt.
I should mention that Sarah has BPD. For her, the thought of Bailiffs knocking on the door is more traumatic than it would be for most people, to the extent of wanting to run away.
Sarah is a lovely young woman, with a strong desire to put things right in her life and provide a better life for her son. If I could pay this last debt for her, I would! But I have run-out of available funds, and so I now appeal to you. Please consider donating something to help her out. Every donation is gratefully received.
Thank you for you kind attention in reading this message. Your help is very much appreciated. If you cannot help yourself, please share this story with your friends. Thanks!
