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

Wow LadyAng I'm surprised to see you here on MyFico, much less sharing to the world the favor I asked of you. I asked to keep that between you and I. I'm your neighbor from 3 houses down...

 

JK. That's incredible. I can't believe that. Telling you how YOU can give him $5K. Although it's easy for me to say that I would have gone crazy, I'm sure I would have handled it the same way you did. Good on you for not falling in that trap. If you had loaned it, and they were truly maxed out on everything, you can rest assured you'd be the LAST to be paid back.

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

You know, I just thought of something. Virtually all cards that offer cash advance, it's like just a fraction of the total credit limit. Seriously, one of my cards offers only $500 and the most I've seen is 50%. So in the nutjob neighbor's mind, he's assuming I have very high limit cards to be able to do cash for $4.6k for him.

 

Besides that, if I needed to do cash advance just to cover his butt, it would be because I had no cash in checking, savings, money market, etc. What was ***I*** supposed to live on while he was "saving his house"???

 

Dang! Now I'm PO'ed all over again!!!

Some people will never be able to have self control, its like a drunk will always crave a drink, best thing you can do is tell him to get on a budget, and work hard to get out of debt and get your life back together.

None of this surprises me. I've come in contact with more than one over the top scumbag over the years.

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

I just realized (been busy with the holidays, family business, travelling, etc.) that the neighbor had a court date of November 29th. So I checked the court records again and it says "Cancelled. Agreement Reached. CLOSED) on 11/29/2016. But then 3 days later it says "Order Of Foreclosure, Court fees of $566 paid in full by Plaintiff". Also, an individual additional unnamed plaintiff appeared Pro Se.

 

Now, I can't be sure, but it almost sounds like the neighbor agreed to do a "Deed In Lieu Of Foreclosure". Meaning, he'll voluntarily vacate the property and hand over the Deed to Compass Bank in exchanged for not having the word "foreclosure" on his credit reports (small consulation) and likely for more time to pack up and go.

 

I don't see his house on the foreclosure lists through February 2017, either. I hope I'm right because I feel truly uncomfortable with him living next to me and truly P.O'd that he mistook me for a Basic B. So, yeah, I want him gone by the New Year. I'll keep you posted.
