We Are Now Home Owners
I hate scammers. They should all have their nuts nailed to a tree.

That is all.


I've not lost anything, thankfully. Mostly I'm just urked at the people who *try* to scam. With this whole apartment hunting thing, it is so terrible just how many of these ads are idiots trying to scam people out of thousands of dollars. Do they think we're that daft? I'm just irritated because it is such a waste of my time, sending out e-mails and making phone calls, and getting my hopes up, just to find out that I'm responding to a fake ad. >:/

Thankfully though, I do have two legitimate viewing appointments tomorrow.

On the up-side of things, Tim did the closing on the house in Michigan today, so we have now officially bought a house. :) The mortgage comes to about $1,300/month, and I have to laugh because that is probably cheaper than any apartment that I might be renting out here. :-P

I also met some neat people while I was out today, picking up a cheque from the studio.

While I was at the bus stop, I met this really cute Italian dude who was lost, as he said he's not from this country, and asked me if this was the right bus he was supposed to take. I'm pretty new to the area myself, but I tried to help him out as best I could. He was very grateful and sweet, and said that so far everyone he's talked to here has been really friendly and helpful. When he got off the bus, he waved "Ciao!" to me, and thanked me again. It was cute. :)

I also met a cool hippie dude walking a beautiful chocolate Pit Bull, and I had to tell him how much I totally grooved on his dog. He was very happy for the compliment, and we ended up walking and talking for a few more blocks, before I had to hop on the Skytrain. His name was Clayton, and he was very nice, and I don't doubt that I'll probably run into him again, since I seem to be in the Commercial Drive area rather frequently these days. :-P

People here are pretty cool for the most part. I dig living in Vancouver. ^__^

What about the women? Can we rip their uteruses(sp?) out and nail those, too? Male or female, they don't need to be breeding anymore. ^_^

I'm terribly sorry. I've been scammed so many times. You'd think after the first time, I'd have learned my lesson ... *sigh*

I know how it is. It's extra magical when the agencies who are supposed to help you recover what was lost, won't.

Ok, color me naive, but what scam is this? How do the scam money from apartment hunters?

Congrats on getting a house. Must be quite nice for that high of a mortgage.

Basically, they put up a nice-sounding ad, and then when you reply saying that you're interested in viewing the place, they give you some sob story about how they have to go on Missionary work, or are living in Australia taking care of their sick mother... or maybe they are in Egypt teaching. But either way, they are "away" and are looking for someone responsible to live in their apartment, and take good care of it, and they will mail you the keys just as soon as you fill out an application form with all of your personal data, and send them a large deposit. It is so lame. -___-

I've always been a fan of Karma.
You helped someone when they needed it, and it will come back in spades.

Liars get what they truly deserve sooner or later.

A good tip: There are actually banks that will give you a loan without charging interest.
I found one (jak.se) that I'm going to take a loan from to pay off my apartment loan.
My current bank takes interest on my loan, so my debt doesn't decrease, but with this other bank, when you pay it of, your debt actually decrease instead of staying the same.
