Hello, I was offered a teaching job in Hanoi for $1500 a month. Since I got here I have never made that amount. A long story.. but I was promised $1500 a month teaching here. However, from day one I have never made more than $200 USD a month. I have no apartment in Seattle anymore and no car. I have an IRS debt and I need to pay them. In addition, I have a child I need to support. I never thought I would ask the public for help but I am very worried about everything here. I was brought to this country on a lie and the company here uses foreigners like me. I know several people who are homeless in this country because of this company. All I need is come cash to go back to America or at the very least make IRS payments and take care of my daughter. I am more than happy to show anything you need to prove this. please HELP!!!

My whole story


My story begins with accepting a teaching offer from Vietnam. I was given a job offer from a company in Vietnam. This offer was to be paid $1500 USD a month for 20 hours a week in classes. I was supposed to get free room and board and all transportation costs provided.

Before I left America, I had a friend drive my car and make my small car payments just in case I needed to come back. What wound up happening was my friend took my bedroom set, not make any car payments, make several tickets, and then left my car abondended. It is now impounded by the police. All my personal possessions that I had left have been stolen. if this was not enough i had my friend rent my apartment in seattle. some friend he turned out to be. he did not pay the rent and was evicted. this of course was under my name with the lease.

So when I go to Vietnam this is what happened. I was told "the law changed" and I needed to go through this long process to get any real work. The amoun t of money I recieved was no more than $200 a month. I had a contract but this means little in vietnam as the rule of law does not appy here, the law of bribes is how things work. during this time i spent all my savings to feed my daughter. in addition, i had a payment arragment with the IRS which I have not been able to pay. So where I am at now is waiting for my FBI clearence and then more paperwork here to get the $1500 a month that the contract states. in the meantime, i can not feed my daughter and barely able to feed myself. I am looking for money so i can get back to america, get a car, and get back on my feet. of course i have told no one this whole story as it is embrassing. you can look me up on facebook. my ID is i will change my settings so anyone can look. Please someone help me before I resort to violence as I really have nothing to loose.
