New opportunity - No money to pusue it.

I was laid off in November in the 2008 Financial Crisis. I did not take unemployment for the first year a half, but things were so bad I decided to take it for the next year and half to when it ended. During that time I was a caregiver for my Dad in his nineties. When he passed away I received a small inheritance and tried to re-educate myself in my trade and continued to learn about investments. Time went on and I was unsuccessful finding work in my trade mainly because I am near retirement age and because every company uses different CAD/CAM software for my work in New Product Development that I have little actual experience with. The 401 plan became a 401 Crises Plan as I began to draw it down to survive and to develop a trade strategy in futures that I hoped to use for personal trade income to stay out of trouble. That is a very hard job but eventually I had success with the idea. I spent quite a lot time and money to program this App but had some bad luck when my programmer had a heart attack and could not finish my project and left me in debt. My money was used up after seven years of being out of work, but I ended up with a lot of experience in futures trade. Recently, I came across a company that needs experienced traders - and I am a perfect fit. They do not hire you, per say, but will provide you a funded trade account if you can pass their test. You become kind of a independent contractor for them if you are good enough and split profits. I wish I would have found this opportunity five years ago. Trouble is, it takes some time and seed capital on my part for testing, trade software, ongoing exchange expense and so on. I ended up in poverty, on food stamps, and am close to eviction and being homeless. With your help, I can get out of this poverty situation pretty quick, get my bills caught up, pay off high interest debt, get some way overdue dental work, pay a medical bill and finally have a job. I lost my phone service this month and will probably lose internet service and my apartment next month so I need to ask for some help now. FYI, check out the site at : Maybe this could be an opportunity for you too or someone you know. It is not easy, but it is a great opportunity for some people willing to learn it. It has been a hard road for me. Thank you for your generosity to help me out of poverty and into a new opportunity.
