As many of you know, I've been searching for an apartment over the last few months. Well, about a week ago I found the perfect place. I handed over $900 to the landlord and moved in. Yesterday I found out the whole thing was a scam and I lost out on all of my money and a place to live.
Turns out the guy who posed as a landlord for the house I wanted to rent was really a con artist and is wanted in connection to armed robberies and purse snatching. Apparently he rented this house himself for only a week before telling the real landlord he wanted out. The landlord gave him all of his money back and gave him a couple of days to move out. During those two days, this man listed the house for rent on craigslist posing as the landlord, rented it out to myself and a friend, and then left town, leaving the two of us to get kicked out when the real landlord showed up.
The woman who manages that house and apartments in the area put us up in a small 2 bedroom for free for the rest of the month, but after that we aren't sure what we will be able to do. We gave that man every penny we had.
I am asking if my watchers of deviant art could help me reach my goal of making back the money I had stolen. My friend and I both had $450 taken from us each, so raising $450 back in commissions is my goal.
I'm asking that people spread this like wildfire. If you know anyone who would like a piece of art done for them, please send them my way. All of my commissions range from $5-25 and are very reasonable. Full prices and descriptions can be found on my profile page in the commissions widget.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much.
I would, but money is rather tight with me
