Some people are just ‘less than honest’, to put it nicely.

I’d like to think that I’m a pretty good friend.

I like to help my friends. But, there are some out there that are users.

This list seems to be growing. I don’t like it.

It’s more a demonstration of my ill-guided trust in people I guess.

They say don’t lend money to friends.

Here is my list of friends that I loaned money to when they were in a real bind.

This is probably all I’ll say about these people. I miss them as friends.


  • Alexis Marie Ortega from Phoenix Arizona.
    Alexis was being sued by her HOA. It was expensive. I helped. She got me for $4,500.

Of course, she said she’d pay me back. But, she’s since ghosted me.


  • Avery Lazarus from Austin Texas. She was in between jobs.
    I once gave her a credit card number so she could order something to eat. (Yeah, I know… What was I thinking?)

Avery ran up $1800 in charges on my card before I realized it. She sent me $200 on Venmo to start to pay me back, then blocked me

on all of her social media and phone. Go figure. She even blocked me on Venmo. I guess that Avery’s made it clear that she’s not interested in paying me back.
