[ - ] WWYD? I have a cousin who asks me for money. She's 60-65 yo, self-employed also has a second job. She's barely making enough to cover 2 rents (apartment and store) and other expenses. Also sometimes she needs a chunk of cash for renewal of her contracts etc and this is where she falls short and ask me for money. Her parents passed away after the family business which my cousin was in pretty much failed and sold the house. Her sisters cut her off financially. She has health insurance but no public assistance, as she lives in a country where it's way harder to get a public assistance than US. I know I posted this yesterday but would like more opinions. I'm tired of giving her money, this time she asks $600, also says she may have breast cancer ( may or may not be true). I've been giving her $2000 here $500 there for years. She asks a lot of relatives for money including my mom who lent $1000 years ago and never saw the money. Now she has less people to ask, I'm afraid what happens to her if I decline. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
