There are an INCREDIBLE number of scammers here.  I'd estimate half of the loans funded here on the forum are not repaid, and that's despite people avoiding most of them because they probably won't be repaid.  Also, lots of people scam in the for sale section.  They'll post a laptop for sale, etc, you pay them, and they never send the goods.  Can't do a chargeback with Bitcoin, so they can just take the money and run.

So people are very wary of newcomers asking for money, to the point of making fun of anyone who does so.

I tend to believe people until they give me a reason not to believe them, but that gets me in trouble sometimes...

Anyway, all of that said, I doubt you'll get a loan, but you can probably find some odd jobs here and there.  If you knew how to program, I'd pay you to program me a trading bot.  Wink

Hey, no problems on that. I didn't know it has been bad here. Do that many people really default? I would be willing to give my credit report for a loan. That's how banks work. I tried a real bank but they are not into micro loans. I only need 300 USD. They wanna do 1000 min. No way would I do that. Never borrow more than I need. That's just bad news waiting to happen.

Thank you for letting me know its not personal. Feel a little better.

Give this a try if your not looking for much money    www.lendingclub.com

P.S. If you go that route post back with your loan number and I'll see about making sure you get funded.

Doesn't matter, that is the way to be. Don't judge anyone until you get a good feel for them. It may bite you in the ass every now and then but you may lose out on an even bigger opportunity that has been offered by a legit member. This doesn't mean lend to anyone who asks who hasn't proofed NOT to be a thief. This just means while having reservations, never condemn anyone without evidence. This forum has some issues with that and it probably deters legit people away, while is meant to deter scams it probably counteracts some legit people. It also affects those who are determining if this site is resourceful.

OP im really sorry for your loss.  the world can be extremely cruel.  last month something similar happened to me and i lost $3k and have been dealing with an extremely upset landlord on late rent. 

i hope your luck turns around

I share my sympathies with the OPs situation and loss.The world can sometimes be harsh.
