Re: Neighbor I Barely Know Asked For $5k Loan! What?????

I'm completely speechless. **bleep** is an understatement.  Well at least you've got a few bullet points should he be stupid enough to open the conversation again!

You should have listened carefully to your neighbor, then asked him for $10k.

Re: Neighbor I Barely Know Asked For $5k Loan! What?????

Lol. Wow, that would've really confused. But only for a second. This man was truly in a mission to part me from my money!

UPDATE: The court records show a "final hearing for foreclosure" date of 11/29/2016. (Secondary liens must be judicial in Texas.) It was scheduled on October 20th.

So tell me what this so-called emergency deadline of October 31st was about that he was trying (unsuccessfully) pressure me with when he's got a month more to come up with the money.

Re: Neighbor I Barely Know Asked For $5k Loan! What?????

UPDATE: Asked the neighbors across the street and next door, (both of whom I know quite well enought to have socialized with and been inside each other's house -- unlike "crazy neighbor",  if he'd approached them. Nope, and they were just as astonished as I was. So just me, then. Hmmmph.

 

Installed Ring Pro Video Security Doorbell, Chime, and rear and side yards video cameras, all with night vision. Works well, had the first real test when an Amazon "same day" package was delivered last night. Also am installing landscaping lights and leadwalk lights.

 

Next will come putting the interior lighting either on timers or accessible remotely via wifi to make it seems the house is always occupied. (Have holiday travel coming up.) Haven't decided on a system yet. Accepting all suggestions, please.

 

Can't do much about the mailbox, except be aware of all sensitive deliveries like credit cards. But we do have instant text and email alerts of trackable deliveries in progress: when they've shipped, when they're out for delivery, and when they're completed by UPS and FedEx.

 

Also, being more aware of closing blinds and draperies when no one's home and finally found the incentive to hang those heavy theatre draperies on the front living room windows.

 

Freaky neighbors making me spend a crap load of money. I even called the DMV to nag about my permanent license plates! SMH!

I read through this thread. I'm glad that you were savvy enough to not lend  give money to your neighbor. I wonder if the guy is a gambler.

...and maybe the next time you see him let him know how happy you were that his foreclosure was delayed by a month.  (Then he will know that you fact checked.)

Sweet! But I truly hope I never run into him again. Wouldn't recognize him or his wife outside of the neighborhood anyway. That's how "close" we are.

That conversation would have been about 10 seconds witih me.

 

No, I don't give away money, period, I wouldn't have listened to a second of it.  And get your concealed carry liscense.

 

That's a con artist, you should turn them in.




My credit .... It's over 9,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
