I sold my house this year to help my ex wife and my disabled daughter get more help from social services , they live on a second floor flat but my daughter has difficulty walking through her syndrome ,called COHEN SYNDROME ,generally the symptoms are high motorbility in her limbs , short sighted and eventually blindness around mid twenties ,her knee caps have been popping out and causing her pain from the time she could walk which wasn’t until she was 3 , prior to that she wouldn’t try to stand and we never knew that she was getting pain . she has been an amazing child and everyone that meets her love her to bits .. she has had an operation on her knees and all she has wanted is new knees and new trainers with flashing lights so she can go running ,bless her x
I banked 17 k from the sale of my house and had plans to help my mum get a new car saw a few for a couple of grand and because she was always taking lilimai hospital and her car was getting a bit worn I really wanted to help my caring loving mother who did so much for me and our family and struggles to get by but would give me her last fiver to know ive eaten or got petrol to visit ..
I wanted to take the time off work and spend time helping lilimai get around in her casts and eventually take her on holiday once she had the casts off , she loves swimming and a week by the pool would make her sooo happy !!! and she loves spending time with her daddy .. it would of been good for us all as the operation was successful .. fingers crossed ... but very stressful for all concerned, seeing your little girl upset and in pain is an horrible situation and you have to be strong for her and keep her smiling . Lilimai is one super resilient happy child and so brave .. I’m fine my daddy .. she will say , never crying or moaning just smiling and innocently stroking your arm to reassure you lol she is amazing ..
Moved into a rented place set up my bills etc and started getting calls from an investing company , was looking into trading and been learning a bout it , a guy called ZAC GOLDBERG .. COPERSTONE trades , they encourage you to invest some money and they make you a bit of profit and your smiling , then comes the excellent news you need to put as much as you can in there is a big event coming up and we gonna make about 10 k In about a week ! its gonna be fantastic we are gonna make some great profits my friend and then you can take a nice big withdrawel have some time off celebrate , treat yourself and your family , then we can make you some more ...
This is what actually happens .. they put a nice big trade on with no stop loss and it reverses on you and eats up all your equity once this happens and there trade is too big for your account to cover it closes on you wiping out your funds , I had 15k in an account and there trade went to -18k ... done on purpose fraudulently to take your money , they stop calling and answering your calls , ignore all your emails and plea’s of help and there ends up being nothing you can do cos of a loophole ‘trading is a risk ‘ its not fair and its not right these people are ruining peoples lives ....
Eventually when I realised what they had done and my money was tied up and they were not entertaining me having withdrawals to pay my bills and get shopping. my bank account ran to nothing my stomach dropped my world fell apart the realisation of being scammed , ripped off , losing my whole future and risking being kicked out of my rented property and literally having nothing through trusting the wrong people , feeling gullible and stupid , ashamed and disgusted with your self , crying all night cos you have let everyone down and just thinking how these people had put me in a situation where I just wanted to kill myself ,different w
ays ,hanging ,slit wrists ,jumping from the carillion . I didn’t know how to talk about it , what to say , who to speak to , I tried to get some money from my pension and unless your dying or 55 you cant have any , but if your suicidal all they will do is ring Scotland yard who got in touch with me to make sure I was ok and not really suicidal , eventually I spoke to the doctor and broke down on my mum a few times before other people started to push me to a more positive place ...
My situation right now is dire ,im a month behind on rent 625 and nothing else has been paid , signed on and may get some help in a week or so they sorted my council tax out and I have a few possible work opportunity’s
Its been a real bad experience and if your ever in that bad place , DO TALK TO SOMEONE !! believe me I gave up on people and life and I hope you never feel so low and alone and worthless ...
I just need to believe people are out there that will help a bad situation and maybe make things easier to help you through and add a spring into your step ...
Things will get better xx
