  • Do you need to have a bank account in order to get a job? Like, if I were to work and get paid..Do I really need a bank account?

    I'm trying to get a job but I don't want to open a bank account. Does it really matter if I have a bank account or not? Can I still get pay checks even without a bank account? Does most jobs require workers to have back accounts or is it just only necessary if you want direct deposit? Do jobs ask for bank... show more
    I'm trying to get a job but I don't want to open a bank account. Does it really matter if I have a bank account or not? Can I still get pay checks even without a bank account? Does most jobs require workers to have back accounts or is it just only necessary if you want direct deposit? Do jobs ask for bank account information? {I've worked before but never needed a bank account because it was through a family company and they would pay me in cash only. So, I still don't want a bank account. I don't trust bank accounts.}

  • Am I selfish or am I right for this?

    I am a 19 year old working at a store that pays me a decent amount of money above minimum wage but I have a friends that keep asking for money.

    I am a 19 year old working at a store that pays me a decent amount of money above minimum wage but I have a friends that keep asking for money. Like people are asking me for 200 dollars and I look at them like they’re crazy. I don’t have any financial responsibilities, I live with my parents and go to junior on a full ride and get around public transit for free due to the school I go to having a fare card waiver. So no financial responsibility or obligation. All my paychecks are being direct deposited into my savings account and that money would be saved and invested in my future when I have a family I’ll be working but I’ll also have sur plus or extra money from savings. It’s always good to have a bunch of extra money, it’s better than having less money than what you need. One of my friends has a child and lost her job and is struggling to pay rent this month and she asked for 300, but I couldn’t help her cuz I need the money I work hard for toward my future so I don’t ever have to be in a situation where I can’t pay a bill. Another one of my friends gets mad when he asks for money and people don’t give it to him so he calls them selfish. People don’t owe you s**t. I’m working to benefit me and make sure I’m never poor and that’s what a lot of my friends don’t respect. I need a new circle of friends who are more financially stable just so I don’t receive text asking for hundreds of dollars. I may come off selfish but I gotta save my own a$$.

  • Do you think it's legal for someone to put extra money in your banking account?

    A couple days ago, an old high school friend of mines had messaged me on Facebook and asked me was I'm interested in making extra money and I told him yes. Then we talked on the phone about and told me that he hooked another friend from high school too and I told him that he can hook me up with it but I told... show more
    A couple days ago, an old high school friend of mines had messaged me on Facebook and asked me was I'm interested in making extra money and I told him yes. Then we talked on the phone about and told me that he hooked another friend from high school too and I told him that he can hook me up with it but I told him we could meet somewhere and do it. I won't let him use my login or password for my bank account, I'll watch the guy and I told him we could do it together and my bank account is not over $10,000 either. I just hope that it's legal and I won't get in trouble for it. I'm trying to save that extra money for an apartment.

  • I've lost my mom's bank card, how would I let her know?

    Best answer: The sooner you tell her the better. Dreading telling her will turn out to be worse than actually telling her, and then she will still find out sooner or later anyway. Pull the band-aid off quickly. It will sting a bit but just do it and get it over with (i.e. come clean and while you may be punished at least you... show more

Pull the band-aid off quickly. It will sting a bit but just do it and get it over with (i.e. come clean and while you may be punished at least you will get it over with). Apologize, learn from it, and move on as quickly as possible.

  • Do I have to have my personal address on my new checks?

    I move often so it doesnt make sense to put my personal address on it. Does anyone know any cheap websites to order address-less personal checks?

  • When i asked for a refund it was sent to my debit card number, not my bank account number?

    I recently purchased a few items from "tambeauty", and i regretted it so i asked for a refund. When i asked, they immediately did so without even asking me for confirmation that i wanted a refund. I didn t get any information whatsoever about the fact that i would get my money to my debit card number, not my account number. I know it s odd to think that it would be like that, as when you purchase something it doesn t ask for your account number, only for your debit card number. (I think that s a little upsetting though) But yeah, here i am. I asked live service, and they said they couldn t do anything about it. Some stranger now has MY money in their account. I don t know what to do about that?

  • I lost about £200,000 in an investment that went wrong. Will I ever recover given that I am now 57 years old?

    My wife an I put most of our savings into a stock market investment and we lost around £200,000 that we put in. We only recuped around £3,000 of our original investment.

    My wife an I put most of our savings into a stock market investment and we lost around £200,000 that we put in. We only recuped around £3,000 of our original investment. Our financial adviser advised us on this investment, but it has all gone wrong. Naturally I was mad at the advisor and all he could say was sorry. We saw our investment losing value gradually, but our adviser kept saying that we should be patient and that things would get better, but they never did, despite us foolishly trusting him. We are both really mad and angry, but now we have to deal with reality. We still haven't finished paying the mortgage on our house. We only have savings of around £10,000 left. I am feeling so depressed and fed up with life. I have worked so hard all my life and now I and my wife are in such a difficult situation. Luckily our daughter is now working at 23 years old, but our 17 year old son who wants to go to University will have to fund himself now as we cant afford it. We feel we have let our whole family down and we are furious with the financial advisor. We have bills and loans to pay off and I don't know how we can pay them all off. Should we declare ourselves bankrupt? How are we going to get ourselves out of this mess? Is our retirement going to be a real struggle now?

The trustee cannot act outside the conditions of the trust on just her opinion of how you have performed ( unless there is a clause in the trust deed that stipulates that you must obtain certain grades etc.) Check out https://lawpath.com.au and ask the online help desk.

  • Can I Recieve Money Anonymously?

    Hello, I heard of this thing called a paypig which is a guy that gives you money because he enjoys it.

I could really use the money because i’ve tried balancing a job with school and i end up not having time to study and do bad in classes. Anyway, I’m afraid to because I don’t want to put my information out there, so would someone need my name/address etc to transfer me money? Would there be a way for me to use a fake name or something?
