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 digitalcharity.com - '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 digitalcharity.com. 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!




Most of the people here are in a similar situation, some better, some worse, but, I do hope you receive relief somehow, unfortunately I am not able to help you, I can't even help myself right now. :?

i am in a horrible situation myself :(
i have no idea if cyber begging works, my guess would be no as I think people have so little money these days that they would not spare to someone who might be making everything up..
but this board does give great advice and can help you with chase and bank of america. seriously, this board has changed lives!

Cyber begging has been succesful for a few who have started website with names like Itsuckstobeme.com and know the secrets and hard work of driving traffic. www.Modestneeds.org is good but not in this economy as there is so much competion for money. You can find work at home jobs that are independent contractor, commision only jobs. They will earn you a couple of hundred a week at best but they are not visable to unemployment if you are still collecting! Try Craigslist but be very skeptical! The site is loaded with scams and cons.

I don't give to those type of sites. They could easily be lying, not saying you are but you never know who or what is behind it. I just don't trust it.

I wouldnt give to those types of sites....you never know if it is a scam or not. If I want to give money, I will give it to a local church or food shelf.

Why cant you get a job with your financial situation??

i do not agree with those sites neither :(
but what really makes me sad is that the problems the original poster mentioned are all debt related and we could really help him here.

I really appreciate everyone's feedback. I didn't think it would work - but thought I'd ask if anyone tried it. As for the question about debt problems and getting a job - most companies do credit checks now and if you are 90 days or more past due, it's highly unlikely that you will be considered for any job that involves money or personal information - which covers just about anything. 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

dobieg - if you keep looking you will be okay. many, many people have bad credit and found jobs. do not give up! :)
as for going on other's blogs and clicking ads, i do not know. i do not do that, i mainly come here to get advice and try to help and encourage and support people who need advice. you can make money from posting here with debtcc points, but i do not think anyone here really depends on them.
this board has been a lifeline to me.. i really meant it when i said you should post and ask about your debt problems.. the wonderful people here can really help you sort all of that out. seriously, that is what we do here..

I've never tried Cyber Begging, even though I'm desperate enough, lol. I just never thought it would work. I've seen people's ads online before like "help! I need money!" and stuff like that, but I've never helped anyone else like that online, so I don't think anyone would help me.

I saw someone mention Craigslist, but the competition for jobs is ridiculous. I've replied to hundreds of job ads on Craigslist for part-time work, and work on the weekends, even stuff I'm more than qualified for, and I never get a response! Not even a "we've already hired someone" response. It's ridiculous.

I guess I just don't feel like putting my business out there and then asking people to give me money. I know I've made mistakes and I'm trying to learn from them all, but I just need money, not to put my whole story online, lol. I could tell my story and probably make people feel sorry for me, but that's just not me, so I would probably never try Cyber Begging.
