Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls Royce to a downtown NY City bank and went in to ask for an immediate loan of $5,000. The loan officer, taken aback, requested collateral.

"Well, then, here are the keys to my Rolls Royce,"

the man said. The loan officer promptly had the car driven into the bank's underground parking for safe keeping, and gave him $5,000.


Two weeks later, the man walked through the bank's doors, and asked to settle up his loan and get his car back. "That will be $5,000 in principal, and $15.40 in interest," the loan officer said. The man wrote out a check and started to walk away.

"Wait sir," the loan officer said, "while you were gone I learned that you are a millionaire. Why in the world would you need to borrow $5,000?"




The man smiled.

"Where else could I park my Rolls Royce in Manhattan for two weeks and pay only $15.40?"

This is really embaressing however desperate times cause for desperate measures.

I am an intelligent (not so good with money it proves) and attractive 30 year old woman. I am not a war vet, ill or trying to save the worlds or cure aids.

I am simply F***ed as I have been living above my means for too long and really just want to clear my debt, pay off my bank loans and get back on track to rid my constant feelings of anxiety and depression and so I can get my life back and get back in control.

I am desperate to start up my own events company, I have the contacts and the experience too but due to my debt I am stuck in an awful rut and I want out.

To clear me of my mountain of debt I would need 50k euro, but at this stage 50 euro will make a difference. I am willing to pay every cent back over 5 years (banks wont give me loans or consolidate my debt anymore!!)

If you think you can help, please be kind ;) I do believe in Karma and believe good things do come to those that wait (or persistence pays off).

Thanking you. Chantelle

I am in desperate need of 25,000. I lost my job do to a lay off, and my spouse and I are going to lose our house of 20 years because I cant find work. Bank wont give me a loan because I am out of a job, and the mortgage company cant help us any longer. There wont be a Thanksgiving this year for us,its just the two of us, we have no family to lean on.
If any one can help, I am willing to pay back the loan within 10 years with interest.
Thanking you in advance.

Last year my husband refinanced our home to pay off my medical bills, there were no other options. This year under the crunch we cannot make the 2000.00 housepayment, and my husband applied for a loan correction..we had to send them a housepayment, to get the action started. now we are soon to be 3 housepayments in the hole. My husband works construction and his hours are short we just can't do this. I am praying that someone out there can help me with a loan I need 8,000.00 to cover late fees etc. I can't get a loan anywhere. I need one badly, and I can begin paying it back in the month of march 2009. I do not want a hand out. i appreciate any help.
