My name is Alex and I am asking for help from anyone willimg to give it. In the last month I lost my main job that I worked 45 hrs a week for the past 3 years. Long story short there was a new manager and he wanted to do an entire staff change so I was suddenly fired for an incident I was not involved in. One of my friends got mistreated at a hospital, fell into a coma, and passed away 3 weeks later. My boyfriend who I financially supported for 3 years broke up with me, moved to the other side of the country because he got a job and then a new girlfriend, while I still am trying to pay off a trip we took 8 months ago. My family is taking care of my grandma who has dementia, and can’t help me with any bills or rent. My TV stopped working, my car needs new tires before it really starts to snow, & I’ve been eating ramen, rice, and oatmeal for a month. I was so alone and desperate and terrified that I wouldn’t be able to make rent that I got involved with what I thought was a job but I ended up getting scammed. They gave me fake checks that I used to pay some of my bills with and after the bank discovered it was fraud they froze that account. So now I owe all of the monthly bills and the $2,500 that the scammers stole from that account before the checks were found out to be fraud. The worst part was that after the scammers got their money and disappeared I actually missed having someone who wanted to talk to me everyday. This is the most stressed, lonely, and heartbroken I’ve ever felt, so many bad things has happened in such a short amount of time it’s hard to find a way to get out of bed everyday. I was able to get a job but it doesn’t pay nearly enough for me to get ahead of all this debt. I’ve sold as much of my clothes and jewelry as I could and am trying to find another job, but I’m running out of time. If anyone out there could please help me see that all is not lost, that I’ll be ok because I’m really scared and don’t know what else I can do to prevent myself from getting into an even worse situation than I am now.
I need $10,000 for rent, bills, tires, debt, and to cover the fraudulent check. Anything helps, and thank you.
