cyber begging - does it work?

Has anyone ever tried any of the cyber begging websites? I am so desperate for money and I'm probably 2 or 3 weeks away from Chase and B of A filing a lawsuit or judgement against me. So I posted for help on - 'cause it's free. The title is "I Need Help So I Can Get A Job". What I wrote there doesn't tell the whole story ... I am in really dire straits ... I feel like I woke up in the middle of a Twilight Zone episode. I know if I straigten out my financial situation, I'll get a job. For me it's the catch-22. Can't get a decent job until I get my financial situation squared away and can't get squared away without a decent job! I sold what little possessions I had last summer.

I plan on blogging about how I got myself into this mess. Never thought I'd be here! I'd appreciate any donations - even if it's a dime (or penny) at Every little bit will help - and I will definitely return the favors when I get back on my feet. I never intend to use a credit again - ever - for anything!

But sometimes the unexpected pops up and the need is urgent!  What do you do then? How do you prove you are legit?

I saw many responses asking why the person couldn't get a job. He explained. Debt is having an impact. It does matter if you want a good job. It is one more strike in a bad economy. House cleaning is a good way though--try it. I understand. My story is bad. I have been out of commission for the lives of my twins. That is over 12 years. After years of being told by the medical community to "deal with it," that I should give up due to multiple diagnoses. Nice! Encouraging. Fundraising, reaching up, and asking for needs works. I didn't do this, but a friend of a friend was having fertility issues. She couldn't afford them but wanted kids. I understand that. I went though it. She went to Youtube and asked. IVF was funded; ultimately an adoption was funded. It can work. Try to give information about your case, be specific and truthful. People like that and can see a lot of bs. It is insulting when it happens. That is my two cents worth.

It worked for me a few years ago when I was really down and out. Some of them charge. Can you believe that. You have NO MONEY and they want you to pay. Too Funny. There is a new one here: Can't hurt to try. Good Luck

It works only when you're being able to prove your identity alongside a major social cause for which you're begging on-line. Other wise, I don't think it will work.

Yes. I lost 2 jobs in one week exactly. One job hired me and after 3 days let me go because I did not have a 10 yr history of work with no gap and that is because for two years I've been laid off. Then I got another job offer to start Monday June 21st and lost it today because they ran a credit ck and I have outstanding payday loan and medical debt however, I tried to explain I did not get foreclosed on my house I sold it and moved in an apt when I realized I could not keep paying the mortage and I've kept same vehicle for 20 years and I have not had a bank loan or major bad credit and I asked and than started crying how am I supposed to pay my creditors if I cannot get a job? The HR lady said, "I don't know and sorry, good luck." I am suicidal. I have no family to move in with and by July 1st since congress won't pass Tier 5 I will be evicted and I've lived in same apt for 7 years I stopped by managers office and asked if I could speak to Owner who lives in different state and told no. I was told if I break lease and do not stay until lease is up In March of 2011 I will be sued and for attorney fees which would end up around 15 or 20 k. I asked if I could have my rent decreased for a while until I get a job since I've kept it paid and never late for 7 years and never been a problem and the mgr said, I am sorry we don't do that or we would have to for everyone. She said, she had to go to appt., left me sitting there in tears and just so sick I could not stand up and walk. I've applied for every kind of job including janitorial and avon and cleaning houses and pizza restrauants, I've begged at gas stations and offered to work any and all shifts and days. I've not got one job offer that has came through but I've passed all drug tests but now I lost a job because I did not have a 10 year job history without a gap and because of credit. I have no way or resource to pay my registration next month or rent or eat I am physically very sick and throwing up and having different physical symptoms from crying so much everyday and cannot sleep and not eating. Is there anyone to help me. I've tried the cyberbegging and cannot even login as new member. I've lost money on sites to make money from home. Nothing has worked and thats the truth. I am desperate and scared. I did not use my heat all last winter and it has still stayed cold and I get no sun in my apt. I have froze and just almost felt like I was dying from the cold and fear and depression. I have no insurance and need a doctor and denist. What do I do. Any help out there. I've told the truth. My only family is my Dad who went in nursing home last November. He is on feeding tube. He is 88.

i do not think that just because someone does not help makes them selfish.. a lot of people are struggling and it is not always obvious.

I know how you all feel!! Believe me, I am there and I myself have just tried a cyberbegging site too. My husband and I just started a new ministry to help people like you and myself. The problem is, I can't get it off the ground. I have put what little money I have into it and come to find out my electicity will be shut off today if I don't pay it. Now my child is going to suffer too. I am not sad, just frustrated with people who can help, but are selfish and have never been in dire straights themselves so they have no clue. They think we are all out trying to get their money. If anyone could help with even a dollar that would be greatly appreciated. and EMail me if you do, because I am doing a show this weekend and hope to get some funds ahead. My promise to you is, I will help everyone I can because that is what this ministry is about. People helping people. Personally if we all help each other with $1 we could all be ahead. You can donate over at my website and definately EMail with what you need and after this weekend, I will help you all out. God bless you all and thanks for helping with my electricity bill. And remember this, God loves a cheerful giver and he always gives it back double!! Amen to that.

You'll get turned down for being either over-qualified or under-qualified.

I'm just looking for ways to get some money.

Do people in this community support one another by going to a member's blogs on other sites and clicking on AdSense Ads? Just a thought ....

Thanks again

It's not as unlikely as you think. My credit is horrifying at around 500. However, I work at a bank and got the job with that credit score. I was concerned when I found that they were going to be doing a credit check and asked about it. The HR recruiter explained to me that when they look at the credit report, it's to look for anything to do with fraud. They don't care about the score.

Keep trying and don't limit yourself by not applying for jobs because you think you can't get them due to your credit score!

i agree with alot that's being said. i do try to help out.. not so much money as i am lacking there ;) but in time, or canned goods that i have, etc. but only when i can spare these things myself.
there are a lot of scammers out there and it's sad because they take away from help that some people really need.
