went to college for 3 years but never finished my degree, at the time I was naive enough to think I could just study whatever I enjoyed in college, I was pursuing a philosophy degree until family matters forced me to withdraw, I want to eventually finish my degree but at the moment I'm just trying to get enough money to live, not to mention pay off the banks

Just move to another state, get a DARK suntan, apply for a drivers licence in a new name; then a NEW SS number, all the time remembering to slur your words and say " Yo no comprendo " when asked ANY question you don't care to answer.

Be nice to start a NEW life and leave the past behind, including the preditory banksters and their USURY schemes !

I'm able to stay for free at my mom's so I won't be relocating unless I have something lined up that will pay enough that I can afford to live on my own wherever the job would be. $1000 isn't an insurmountable number to pay down in debt and I believe I should pay what I owe despite the predatory practices banks engage in, render to caesar that which is caesar's

Focus on the "enough money for living" part. Screw the banks, they are screwing you. Whats the worst thats going to happen? You won't have good credit and nobody will LOAN you money? In case you haven't figured out yet why you are stressing I'll tell you. DEBT IS SLAVERY. All credit drops off your bureau's every 7 years. The sooner you default or settle the quicker it goes away. Is that morally responsible? No less so than the post pinned showing BOA's collection practices or the revolving door between the banks and the Treasury/FED.

default over $1000? what happens if I want to rent a room at some point or purchase a home when I have a job that pays enough to make payments? I know the economy situation isn't looking that great now and looks like it will only get worse, but the last thing I want is to end up in some debtors camp. that being said I don't have time to sit around waiting for complete collapse of society because the result for me would be the same as if I had tried to make things work and make things square with the banks. the only difference is by trying to do the 'right' thing at least I give myself a chance should things improve.

go dumpster diving. any place that has copper wire or copper tubing (heater coils) can get you alot of money these days at the recycling center.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 803389


Anything made of metal is of value to a scrap yard. Even galvanized stuff. If you can find copper wire, burn the insulation off of it first, you get more money. Bare copper piping and fittings is the most lucrative outside of silver and gold. Solid aluminum is a good thing too. Painted aluminum fetches less as it requires additional processing. Cans are worth $ 0.49 a pound in my area.

Put 9 pennies in a red envelope under your mat.

lol, my ambition is to make music but the only guitar tunes I can play lately seem to be down and out.. even considering going into S.F. to sit in the market square there and play with an open case to see if I can get any donations, it's tough when I go there though and see people off way worse than even me. at least I've got a roof over my head at night, and all these guys hounding me for money just because my clothes are clean when they don't realize I'm as broke as they are

Re: I need realistic ways to make $1000 as fast as possible
I have an easier idea...
accept the fact you dont have $1000. And forget about the thing you want to buy.

If its for rent or any other real necessity, call yer landlord or whoever and say you just cant do it and need a payment plan or ask if there is any way they can help. People will work with ya.
If its fer food, call around and get on a charity list and invest in rice and beans.


I'm trying to pay off my credit card company the account is closed but i still owe a balance of $960 on the card, but the due date of the last payment was yesterday and I didn't have the funds to even cover the minimum payment. APR is 26.6 % I'm tired of throwing money to the card companies so I'm trying to get the money to pay off my debt but I can't find anywhere that will hire me around my town

Might be time to reconceptualize your life as you've hitherto been living it.

You play by the rules, you lose the game.

You pay off that credit card debt, likely as not you'll be investigated to see where you came up with the dough from. And, won't be a simple matter of "paying it off", there'll be fees/interest that have miraculously accrued when you attempt to pay it.

It's like a bad divorce, it never stops unless you change your name and move without forwarding address.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 827465


Debtors camp? LOL They'll have to build a bunch of those fuckers! The US is at 20% unemployment and losing 1/2 a million jobs a month. If I were a landlord I don't think I would be so choosy as to not rent to someone because they had 1 bad debt. People are giving you good advise here.

Here's some more for you. I have a friend who was quite successful in real estate investing for the last few years but unfortunately didn't get out soon enough and got stuck holding a LOT of inventory. He had a line of credit with Wells Fargo and owed about 50k on a 200k line of credit. Even though his payments were on time they looked at his credit, saw all of his financed property and cut his line back to his balance. He used that line to make up for cash flow shortages and then would pay it off when he would liquidate a property, take his profits, and start the process over again. He no longer had his seed money to buy new stuff and the old inventory crushed him with home prices dropping. Anyways after not making any payments on the line or his credit card that he owed them around 12k for about 5 months they called him up and offered him a settlement of 9k for all of it! wtf

Apparently these banks can't get collection companies to buy unsecured debt for anything over 3-4% on the total. SO I say don't make your payments for a few months then offer them $100 or $200 Dollars and be done with it. MY buddy is telling them he'll do it only if they remove the trade lines totally from his credit......they are checking to see if they can. 5a :5:

Friend, I am in SF too in the same position. I had to let fly my 4000 credit card bill that is now 4600 cuz I couldn't pay my rent or feed my son. I had to get emergency food stamps which you could get. I would drop the cc bill, i think everything is shitting the fan. I had to sell my old jewelry, not much but something. Sell everything you've got, its week to week at this point for most of us. Hard to find any decent work in this town. $10 hr is the most you can get and it ain't fast....

sorry man, bad times ahead, find out who your real friends are....hugs

you will never get ahead by paying off debt.... however u can eleiminate your debt by consistent investing over time

on a side note I was able to get 12/01/2009 ONLINE PYMT FROM CHECKING +$30.00(pending) banana2

so that gives me 30 days until they want the next payment to get something together to make money to pay it off! afro when I finally pay the remaining 900 off it's going to be great I'll be debt free at last and with the account closed I won't owe anybody anything!

Don't pawn it. It won't help much. Call your credit card company and ask them to lower the interet rate. They will work with you.
