I am going to be bankrupt

Postby dieliao » Fri, 09 Sep 2005 11:45 pm

Hi all,

I owed financial institutions around S$55,000 debt and have been paying at least the minimum.

My contract with army expired 6 months ago and only managed to find a senior tech job of S$1,700 as compared to my previous pay of S$3,300.

Have been paying less than minimum and now banks starting to issue legal letters and initiate legal sue.

ANY HELP?

Went to CCS but they say can't help.

Pls advise cos really feel like run to thailand and forget all about this.

try this funny one

From: Mrs Rairra Coulibally
Abidjan Cote D´Ivoire,
West Africa.
Email Address: mrsraissa05@yahoo.fr
Dear .
I am Mrs Raissa Coulibally from Ivory Coast. I am married to Mr.Pete U
Coulibally who worked with our Embassy in France for nine years before
he died in the year 2001.
We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief
illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born
again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child
outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late
husband was alive he deposited the sum of $850,000 Eight hundred and fifty
thousand united states dollars only with a Bank here in Cote D lvoire.
Presently this money is still in the custody of the Bank.
Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next eight
months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to
donate this fund to a church,organization or good person that will utilize
this money the way I am going to instruct herein.
I want a church,organization or good person that will use this fund for
orphanages, widows and for other peoples that needs help and also
propagating the word of God and to endeavour that the house of God is
maintained.
The Bible made us to understand that"Blessed is the hand that giveth". l
took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this
money and my husband relatives are not Christians not even good at all
because they are the one that responsible for the death of my husband in
other to have all my late husband properties and I don't want my husband's
efforts to be used by those that conspired for his death.
This is why I am taking this decision, I am not afraid of death hence I
know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the
Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that "the lord will fight my case and I shall
hold my
peace". I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because
of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives around me
always.
I don't want them to know about This development and I know that With God
all things are possible.As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you
the contact of the lawyer that will assist us in this project. I will also
issue a letter of authorisation to the bank that will prove you the
present beneficiary of this money also want you,church or the organisation
to always pray for me because the lord is my only shephard.My happiness is
that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.
Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth.
Please always be prayerful all through your life.Contact me on the this
email address and any delay in your reply will give me room in souring
another good person, church,organization for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein.
Hoping to receive your response immediately.
Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
l remain yours sister in Christ.
Mrs Raissa Coulibally

I must seriously warn anyone not to touch the email enclosed in the last link.

This is just one of a series of scams originating in West Africa, and Nigeria. It's world known and they somehow get people to part with money or worse, their bank details and all hell breaks loose when they do whatever it is they do.

I'm not saying this particular one is going to do this, but there have been many instances of this sort of thing in the press, so keep clear, even though most peeps wouldn't touch it with a bargepole, some may be moved to do so.

Don't.

By the way, the first link I gave in the last posting is a good site for finding new scams, worldwide.

Bubbles is quite right in in her advice, I get a lot of that type of letter at my private e-mail addresses. More often than not and for whatever reason they are from Africa and are nothing more than a scam!! I suggest the moderators delete such postings pronto!

To Bubbles and SMS, here is something you may or may not know about;

http://www.dnsstuff.com where you can look up the ISP details pertaining to mrsraissa05@yahoo.fr and inform them of her activities. Interesting to note last time the server was reloaded there were 11892 banned IP addresses.

Hope this is of use to you.

What a self-rightous attitude! :mad:

How do you know this isn't a loan to pay for his/her education? I for one have debt up to my back teeth as my parents were too poor to pay for university, and unfortunately I did not fancy living the life of my parents and grandparents (and now my cousins and siblings).

Not all of us are in debt because of living the high life, you know - quite the opposite. Sanctimonious git.

His previous pay was >$3k ++. For a Singie bachelor, he had consumed and lived above his means. With credit cards and all that... it adds up to wanton and extravagant spending. My hunch that he overspent bith his credit card is correct.

karma or not. try flower power. flower power is a forgotten force of nature not fully explored. when released, it is going to be like a hurricane that will sweep away all the bad karma in your life. it will attract true wealth and prosper your soul. you will gain insights and wisdom to make decisions that will anchor you to the soil so solid...nothing can shake you not even black gold going bonkers . i say... stop and smell the flowers and live. you think better and live better. it will bring you everlasting peace. let your nose do all the work man!!
