When asking for financial help on the web/internet I always get another chance to be scammed. Why?
I apply for about 20-30 jobs a day with no success. I have even got help with my resume. I am in a bad finanial situation but I keep getting offersfrom people outside the USA. I am worried that they are scammers like I have encountered before. Where are all the real people in America that will help fellow Americans? Are you all as scared as I am or am I still being fooled in believing there is still some honest good old American people out there.
I will try to answer your question indirectly: There is plenty of reason to be concerned. The web/internet may have a lot to offer a person in your situation, but many websites have been set up to exploit people in need of financial assistance.
I recently asked the following question on HubPages: "What legal issues are most important to you, and do you get enough help with those on HubPages?" You can find a link to the page with the question in Hubtivity on my profile page. If you want to answer it, I will try to follow up.
We have developed reliable methods to detect whether websites, email offers etc. are dependable or not. We make these resources available to anyone on HubPages.
The web is not a good place to search for financial help in my opinion. Your circumstances and situation are unique to you, general advice on such subjects is often confusing. I am not sure exactly what you mean by financial help but I'm certain you'd get better advice face to face from a reputable local organisation or advisor.
I'm guessing those offers are the usual spam jobs offering work from home jobs. Please don't even respond to them, if something sounds to good to be true it invariably is.
I'm sure there are many millions of honest good Americans out there, but as in Europe there are also lots of other people struggling and in need of help.
Anyway keep up with your job hunt, applying for that many jobs I'm sure you'll get some luck soon!
Your experiences teaches me that the web/internet is not the place to get financial helps.
Instead, please update your interview skills, particularly the communication skill often.
Meet the interviews with confident. Your success will become very reality to you.

Why are there so many people on Hubpages asking, "How do I get my ex back?"It's almost as if these people believe yesterday is better than tomorrow will ever be. I believe an ex is usually an ex for a good reason. In many instances their ex has already begun another relationship!...

I recently joined the gofundme website, in hopes to get donations to save my house. But, I have been on there for almost 3 months, and have not received a dime. I also looked at some of the other things people are asking for. Like one family got over $5,000 to find their dog, and another girl got...

Some hubbers are taking the mick with it. It's spamming. It's not allowed in the forums. If you want attention promote yourself according to good manners. Not by over spamming in the questions section.

I've seen in the past where people say that it's too much time compared to what they have, but really? I mean I see plenty of people in the Q and A and forums, including myself bickering. Surely there is time to help others out. Is it because it isn't your job? Is it because you think they should...
