My main Twitter account was following by @Raising100k a few weeks ago.
Apparently this guy’s in a bit of trouble.Â He owes $100k in student loans, and has fallen on hard times.Â Over half of this amount has been accelerated (called due early).
Not good.Â But, he has a solution:Â beg.
He’s set up a campaign on GoFundMe.com to raise the $100k.Â On that campaign, he’s done a number of things to encourage no one to donate to him:
- No name.Â We don’t even know if this guy is for real.Â It could be a scam.
- No indication of school or major.Â A major in a science would garner at least a bit of sympathy, but he hasn’t disclosed the major.Â I suspect a less marketable course of study.
- Sparsely-linked web presence.Â He has the Twitter account and a Facebook page, but that’s it.
At least the guy could have started a blog with some proactive indications of working to get out of debt.Â He should still do this.Â Student loans debt is very difficult to get discharged.Â They’ll be with him a long time.
