Nothing major since my last post. But some of you, mostly not believing my story (although I don't hold anything against them since I myself didn't believe it at first, which made my problems worse) questioned how my mother got the money to come here.

The answer is this.

My father(whom I last saw about 6 years ago, and am not in any hurry to see him again) works, over there, not in the US. He earns what amounts to be a decent income over there.

But my mother is a spendaholic, and she steals $10,000 from my father periodically to come here.

The reason my father continuously gives her the money to spend is because my mother expects a big inheritance from a distant relative, when that relative dies. So far that relative is going very strong at 77, and that family has a tradition of living up to 90+.

My sister also came to the US to study, spending about $5,000 a month until the money ran out and fled, leaving $20k student loan as I have said before.

Of course I asked my father over there to pay the money my mother and also my other relatives owed to me, and he said 'nothing is free'. He said he owed other lenders some pretty sum to finance my mother's spending trips to the US.

The funny thing is he spent almost nothing for my upbringing. (long story)

So I don't speak with him anymore.

I was the first stop for my relatives coming to the US, and often my family members pressured me to lend'em some money. So I ended up in the present situation.

Blame me for being unwise for so long, but don't accuse me for lying. Later.
