The Debt Collection
When I first took the loan, I didn’t think it would be that bad..
I was from a middle-class family and never went without – until I became addicted to gambling.
With each letter, I chose the famously terrible method of “living my life as though the debt did not exist”. Here's how I managed to crawl out.
Fuelled by self-loathing, I spent thousands on my addiction to drugs, sex workers, booze and designer clothes.
For two weeks, I quarantined in a window-less hospital room and, in the process, earned £4,275.
Big Pump Signal – a Telegram group with over 70,000 members – are manipulating stock markets and regular people like me.
You think that scamming is something that never happens to you – until it does.
Without having my fees waived, I have no doubt I would still be struggling with the debt I racked up.
I didn't want to wait for years in a body in which I felt like an imposter.
I justified my expenses with "I’m anxious and I work hard, why shouldn’t I buy myself this little thing?”
Keeping up with my peers was a struggle. Soon, I was drowning in debt.
