Veteran Needs Help

Organized by: Robert Stehlin

I am a 72 year old - US Air Force Vietnam Veteran who was scammed out of his small savings account and had his checking account depleted when the bank took their money back. This scam involved an individual named "Professor" Russell Dane of Rand Investments. He indicated that he was representing US Congress. This scam has been reported to the Police Department, who have advised me that the likelihood of this being solved, or of me getting any of my money back, is slim to none. I have struggled financially ever since and am desperately trying to recover. I have tired asking friends and relatives for help with little or no success. I have attempted to take out a loan and my credit rating is good, but due to too many liabilities have been unable to acquire funds through that means as well. I have entered a Debit Relief Program which will help in the future in freeing up some of my income but that is not going to help me in the present. I am left to asking for some financial help from total strangers. I am embarrassed in doing so but this is my last resort. I am in desperate need of $4,000.00 to cover my back rent and all of my monthly bills that haven't been paid since November 2015. This will help tremendously in getting back on my feet financially. I am currently two months behind in my car payments and could use $1341.67 immediately. The bank is threatening to repossess my vehicle and if they do, I will have to quit both part time jobs I have as I will not have transportation to complete them. I currently owe $540.00+ to the IRS which I have sent up a payment plan of $100.00 per month until the balance is paid in full. I would like to send them a one time payment and get them off my back. I hope and pray that there is someone out there that would be willing and able to help a stupid, embarrassed old veteran out of this serious financial hole he dug himself. Respectfully submitted.
