people would stop trying to scam the needy online!

I was just scammed! Someone who I have been working with for the past 2 months finally sent me a check for a loan, $4,500.00 and I took it to my bank to cash it - IT WAS A FORGED CHECK! NO GOOD!!! It really upsets me that people can be so low and what really gets me mad is that they do it in the name of Jesus! So now I am back to where I started, homeless!!! - Why can't a genuine, trustworthy person help my family? I pray for those individuals who prey on the desperate familes and individuals who are in need of financial assistance. I pray that GOD will have mercy on them for what they have done to us and for using his name in vain!

What do they get out of this?? I don't understand! I just had someone offer to help us fix our family has been in non-working condition for several months and when I go back to work in a week, with three kids, it is going to be a struggle. Not to mention that the truck that is working has breaks that are going and is also in need of a timing belt...I just don't understand...

It breaks my heart to hear someone not only gave you a bad check but worse gave you false hope in a terrible situation. I wish I had more than sympathy to give you but i to am struggling. Remember for every jerk out there is a hero and a person with a heart of gold! god bless you and your family .. all my prayers xoxo

I will keep you in my prayers. I'm in my own dire straights tonight, but I do hope you find your heros.

On one other note, I see you are from Yucca Valley - we used to live in 29 and I really miss that place! That really brings back memories.

I hope you can find a hero. It is sad that people try to take advantage of people in need.

This is a good wish and I am so sorry this happened to you. It is something that is very rampit around the globe, not a day goes by that I do not receive either a letter, e-mail or phone call informing me Iv won millions! I normally respond to the e-mails telling them to get of their backsides and find a real job instead of trying to live of people and scam them ,lol.

thats aweful! im so sorrythis happened to you. you should report it.

I wish that people would be more respectful of others and stop wasting their time! I can only imagine how embarassing it must have been to take the check to the bank knowing it was your only chance for debt relief. I hope you find a real believer to help you with your struggles. I am where you are and can totally understand your anger. Hopefully the phrase "what goes around comes around" will apply to this.

I hope you did not give that person your personal info ,like ss numbers, or bank acct info, is very sad people are doing that to the ones in need they know people are desperate and they prey on the ones in need.
