Ah, every little kid wants to be Donald Trump. Don't have to work for a living, get rich buying real estate, date expensive models and have expensive divorces. Ah, the American Dream. Just go to those Trump Learning Annex seminars, buy the books, get access to gobs of debt via "liars loans", and you're on your way to riches! Oh, it's just sooooooooooo easy!
Well, like The Donald before him, this 24-year-old FB kid is on the verge of bankruptcy, owing $2.2 Million. My first question is: HOW THE FLYING F*CK DID A 24-YEAR-OLD GET TWO POINT TWO F*CKING MILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT APPROVED. What the hell is going on out there?
But I'll give it to him. Instead of going silently in the night, he created a website and laid all the ugly truth out there for everyone to see. I'm actually rooting for the little guy now. Maybe we all give him $1?
HP'ers - this one post pretty much sums up the insanity of the late, great housing bubble, wouldn't you say? Thanks HP'er for the lead...
I’m really putting myself out there and taking a risk by being honest about my situation. Hopefully people will sense the urgency and help find me a buyer.
I was a little embarrassed putting up this sign. Good thing I was there mid-day and nobody saw me. Although, after I put it up and started leaving I saw a neighbor from across the street go over to pick up a flyer.
Buyers may try to exploit my weakness. They tell you to negotiate from your strength, right? Is being honest = weak? I don’t know. I don’t really want to negotiate anyway. My terms are pretty straight forward. I just want some cash and walk away.
I will need to put on a thick skin. This may cause me to become the talk of the neighborhood. People might laugh, criticize or ridicule. The concerned parents of teenage or 20-something kids will tell their kids “See! This is what happens when you take dumb risks!“. Some may think “Facing Foreclosure .com” is just a ploy to make a sale.
I don’t care… I’m desperate.
