I've Been Out of Work Due to COVID, & We Lost Income to Bank Fraud. Please Help Us Keep Our Home!
I'm a happily married woman, and my husband and I are both essential workers. Until recently, I was working full-time ;however, I recently spent three days in the hospital with Covid-19 symptoms, and I'll be out of work for over a month when everything's said and done. I'm scheduled to go back on March 15th, so we're down to just my husband's income until then. I work full-time as a postal worker, and my husband works full-time in construction.
We've been doing everything that we can to stay up-to-date on all our bills, and my husband is working overtime six days a week to try to make up for our lost income. Yet, every time we get back on our feet something else seems to knock us down. In addition to me being out of work with Covid-19, we also were the victims of bank fraud and lost over $600 as a result of that fraudulent activity. We're still working with our bank to recover that lost money, but it's taking ages for them to get back to us. We need that money to cover our rent and utilities, and without that and my income, we're going to come up short for this month. I'm really worried that we could lose our home as a result of this, so I'm reaching out for help.
We'll be able to take care of all of our bills once I recover and get back to work, and also once we get back the amount we lost to bank fraud. This help would get us back to being self-sufficient almost immediately, and it would allow us to pay towards the medical bills from my time in the hospital as well. We would be very grateful to everyone who helps us keep our home through this situation, and we promise to pay your generosity and kindness forward.
