My name is Aileen, and I was scammed.
In May 2018, I was approached by an individual who needed help acquiring high-end mobile phones for a local government unit. He promised to pay me back at the start of June, and also promised to add some interest in compensation for my help.
Only he hasn't paid me back, and the only way I can pressure him into paying is to file charges already. I've reached out to a lawyer who is willing to take on my case. But that will cost money, and given the circumstances, I am not liquid enough to take things beyond sending demand letters.
I messed up. And I would like to make things right. But I need your help to bring this guy to justice. At this point, I'll be happy to make sure he pays at least the principal amount. Hopefully they'll throw him in jail too to make sure he doesn't do this to anyone else.
If you could find it in your heart to help me raise enough funds so that I can take the necessary legal steps to compel him to pay what he owes.
Thank you in advance for your kind sympathy and magnanimous support in this difficult endeavor!
