By writing that, that means you're not sure if you let anyone down. So much for an apology...

I actually mean it by if there was anyone who actually cared about my actions anymore. Knowing I've made many mistakes in the past, I'm not sure if anyone still cared.

I just didn't want to make it sound like as if I'm so important and everyone would care about me.

It was a private sale through craigslist.
If Salesman was the vendor you're speaking of. I have already pm'ed him details.

I have already paid my friend long before this thread went into double digits. I know our friendship will never be the same again but I want to thank her for being such a great friend and would still see things in my perspective even after I have destroyed the trust she had for me.

And in the near future, I do also plan on dealing with the rest of the problems I have put myself into, as in other debts.

private sale off craigslist.
Partly my fault for not checking the parts more carefully but I saw that he was friends with people I know so didn't think much of it....until I got clemented.

This was sure a fun thread to read.

But I never knew there were so many generous people who would lend out big money like that.
It sucks that so many people are willing to help out a friend, only to get burned for trying to help.

Maybe I'm just a huge dick, but I wouldn't even lend my best friend money. (I would instead lend them help, like if they needed help getting a job)
Most I would do is maybe spot someone for a meal if they forgot to bring cash to a Richmond "cash-only" restaurant.

I just have this principle of: I would personally never borrow money from a friend, and likewise,
I would expect to never be asked, let alone, lend money out.

I just don't see why a person would ever need to borrow money from a friend in the first place.
If they're strapped for cash, living paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford to buy their iPhone5,
they should save up, get their priorities straight, and not be asking friends for money to buy their luxury items.

Then again, maybe easy for me to say. Because all of my friends don't have money issues.
If they did, they probably wouldn't be my friend for long. Because I can't deal with people that can't manage their spending.

It doesn't make you a dick but, but it also means you possess no friends with enough quality that you would go to bat for; friends who are worth more than 1 meal; or even friends that you share a certain level of trust with.


Anyways, when I lend money to good friends, I consider that money gone. If I get it back, that's just a bonus. How close you are, and how much disposable money I have determines how much I can "lend", if at all; since I'm not made of money.


However, that's neither here nor there. Sounds like neither of our arguments apply to the OP and her friend.

This.^^

I will lend a hand to any friend who asks, I will never ask for that money in return, I lend it out on the basis that it is that individuals responsibility to pay it back. If they never even make an attempt, then I will never lend another helping hand to that friend financially. Its not that hard of a concept, if I lend you money, or w/e, its not my responsibility to chase you down for it. Its your responsibility to make an effort and pay me back.

Now with that said, I am not an ATM, i'm not lending hundreds of dollars just out of the blue, I'm talking snapping up the bill for a meal here or there, or spotting someone at the casino or club. Shit like that.

Spoiler!

I think it's more about the principal of needing financial help that I dislike. Or the fact I associate it with irresponsibility.

I mean if I'm planning a trip with a group of friends, and it's easier to have one person pay for all the stuff like gas, hotel, etc and then everyone pay the person back. It's fine.

But when it's specifically asking for money because the friend mismanaged his spending is what pisses me off. Especially when you know he went broke cause of the new gadget he bought last week, or the gadget he wants now, but can't afford.

(my bad, I changed the topic and ruined this thread )

I agree with your pov, it's not a matter of trust or how much my friends worth. But when it comes to money management, different people have different ways and sources. If my friend chose to pre-spend their future incomes and went broke, it's ok. But if he/she asked to borrow money to cover it, this friend is basically jeopardizing someone else's well-being.

EMT only requires an email. The receiver will receive an Interac link to multiple bank institutes and upon logging in to their online bank account, the process will initiate.

Get Scamthony aka Anthony Espinoza to scam Clement.

One scammer turns the tables on another scammer.
