A few months ago I was scammed whilst looking for accommodation in Austria, since then it has been a downward and depressing spiral. I lost over a thousand pounds, and genuinely cried for days. I'd worked all summer to ensue that I could support myself and then suddenly I had nothing. I can assure you it wasn't just me being silly, it was an intricate and extremely clever scam. Including a fake Facebook, Skype and don't ask me how but a fake google maps address. The police don't seem to care much because little old me is not significant enough.
Right now I'm studying painting in Austria. It's quite a lonely experience and being black is extremely isolating. Since the summer my boyfriend and I have been apart, attempting long distance. He's currently in America and I would really love to be able to go over and spend some time with him for thanks giving. I miss him a lot and I'm really struggling in Austria at the moment.In hindsight deciding to come after everything that had happened was probably a bit silly and has left me completely broke. I can appreciate that this may seem extremely trivial, but I would be extremely grateful for any amount. Nothing is too small!
