My beautiful friend Clare is a beautiful person inside and out. if ever you have a problem you can always turn to Clare and she will put you first even though she has her own problems. She was so embarrassed about letting her friends know that she was struggerling but now shes desperate. I want to share in her own words what has happened
“In the true spirit of Christmas I would like to share what my 'best friend' of 7 years has done for me nye on three weeks before Christmas, where I am sure she will be ladening her tree with many many presents for her 4 children.
In April 2017, I got a phone call (from her) saying her husband would phone, which he did to ask about guaranteeing a loan. He said he needed £10K, and that I knew he was good for it (because he had a good job) but needed it for a new van or he would lose the job, ergo his (not his) children would suffer (and knew this would get to me as I have looked after their (HER) children on many occasions, for many weeks). I explained I would have to lie about my salary and my guaranteeing another loan, and he seemed quite happy with this. I agreed reluctantly against every nerve in my body saying DON'T, after every alternative suggestion being poo pooed and hearing that my guaranteeing the loan was the only way their family could survive. He phoned to confirm he had actually asked for £12K. My stomach churned, but with all good trauma bonding techniques (which they both knew about) you know better than to say 'no'.
I digress...... 8 months later, they have paid only 3 months in total. They have moved house, and changed phones and forwarded none of this information to the loan company.
I however, did.
When the loan company got hold of them, HE promised to pay (PTP) the arrears and the monthly payments back on an agreed date.
That agreed date has now passed, and nothing additional has been paid towards the now £17K (yes they add interest at the beginning of the loan!!!) loan.
So I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart, xxxxxxxxx, and her obediant minion xxxxxxxxxx for stitching me up for a shit load of debt, the potential for losing my house, my car and my job, and for ignoring all pleas to honour their promise of my 'never having to put my hand in my pocket' as they were 'good for it'.
You took advantage of my good nature the whole friendship, and totally abused my CPTSD, and I now believe you had no fucking intention of paying the loan back after you moved.
My CPTSD is through the roof, we are 3 weeks before Christmas and I don't know if I am going to have to appear in court, and I could lose everything.
YOU are THE most foul people I have every had the misfortune to trust!!!! “
So please from the bottom of my heart help Clare have a lovely christmas
