This isn't easy for me to talk about. · 10:42pm
Hey everyone. It's been a very long time since I've made a post as serious as this. I suppose I'll start when the shit starting happening in my life.
2017 has not been a great year for my family in the beginning. My dad just got back from California after New Year's Day and was ready to go to work. When he got there, he was surprised with a lay off. We weren't completely left out in the cold, however, since thankfully there are unemployment benefits he could gain, however it can only last for so long. It's not easy to find a job in Washington for my dad despite his engineering degree. Luckily an opportunity came along for my mom, which was my auntie who reconnected with us in February and offered my mom a part time job at her salon.
Knowing that she had to step up, my mom took the job and contributes money to dad to help pay for the house. From that point on, it seems like everything would turn out alright for us. We wouldn't have to sell the house and move across states to California (which thank fucking god we didn't because it's terrible there last I checked). However by the time March rolled in, that's when things took a turn for the worse.
The full story can be found at a link down below, but to sum things up, my family got scammed super hard and we lost a lot of money in the process. It's safe to say at this point, I'm going to be a lot more careful when handling craigslist deals. My dad's account hasn't gone negative but it's pretty close there. Knowing that the bills are being hard to pay for, I understand that I can't just let this not be known. I know it's a month late, but better late than never I suppose. You can see why this was hard to talk about.
Please check out my Go Fund Me for more details about what happened to my family: about how we got scammed and thrown into a terrible financial situation. If you can afford to spare money to help us out, I will be forever grateful to you. It would really help us out in the long run. If you don't, then I do implore you to share my Go Fund Me to people you trust. With a heavy heart, I thank you for your time reading this.
