>>>>>>>>> I too had to learn the hard way. I estimate I handed out $10K before I became seriously ill and learned that those folks I helped out (including relatives) didn't have a dime to help me, nor would they even pay back what they had borrowed so I could take care of myself while I was ill. It was a valuable lesson, because I never could have accumulated what I have today if I had continued to loan money! <<<<<<

I'm sorry to hear that things didn't work out for you. As for my sister and brothers, we have an unwritten mutual aid pact. If anyone needs help, we all do what we can to help out. I guess for us it isn't about money it is about family.

Best to You.
