Loan Counselor Steps Up Big For Woman Who Couldn't Make Her Payments Because She Was Trying To Get Out Of An Abusive Relationship

There genuinely are good people in the world.


A recent story on Imgur has shown that there can always be a silver lining.

Imgur member tigerlilytoph has come out with a story surrounding a woman they worked with. The poster, a loan counselor, had a client who was going through a tough period in her life.

The woman in question was meeting with the loan counselor, as she could not pay off a loan she took for herself during this dark time. She had recently escaped an abusive relationship, and had to get out as quickly as she could.

This is detailed in her written statement.

The letter reads:

"I needed to hide money to be able to leave a relationship that had become abusive once we moved in together. Once it crossed the physically abusive line, I slept in my car. This was on 1/4/2019. On 1/12/19 I was laid off. I am working again now and am trying to pay everything back. The money I had saved, instead of paying, got me out of the car and renting a room. I had to do it."
The woman completely sacrificed her credit to get motel rooms, and get herself away from danger. The loan counselor took the woman's story to heart, and made it a point to help her out.
"I had to do it," the loan counselor said in a statement:


"I just got off the phone with this woman who's loan was several months delinquent. She said she willingly sacrificed her credit in order to pay for other things like a motel room in order to keep herself safe from her abusive ex-boyfriend. When I told her we could fix it easily, and without paying anything, she started crying (so of course I cried, too, at my desk). We got her fixed up, and she (and her credit) are going to be alright.
"Loans are scary, dealing with money is daunting, but for some people, there are far worse monsters to deal with than a delinquent loan. I can't imagine writing the above. What if I have a daughter some day? God.
"A lot of people avoid my calls, and some are flat out rude or verbally abusive, so my guard is a bit raised whenever I get someone on the phone. Calls like this remind me to be gentle with people."

After receiving this woman's call, the loan counselor told her that her company would fix it quickly and easily, and without having to pay anything.

Many have shown support for the counselor's good deed:

"You are a beautiful person to cry with her on the phone."

"Glad there are some good people like you out there. Ive been dealing with collectors ever since I had an emergency surgery I couldn't afford."

-CactusMassage

"This is the kind of financial institution I would do business with."

-StLBDP

It's amazing the way hearing these stories can speak to the heart. It just goes to show that there are genuinely good people in our world, amidst all of the uncertainty within our society. Let's hope that more people take after this generous person.

Warning: There may be spoilers if you have not watched the series finale of Game of Thrones.

Emilia Clarke wanted to ensure Daenerys Targaryen would nail that war-mongering scene in the final episode of Game of Thrones.

The 32-year-old actress – who portrays Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains (that's one character) – did what was necessary to convincingly portray the chilling moment as she spoke in Dothraki and Valyrian.

Who was her inspiration? Dictators like Adolf Hitler, of course.

Speaking with Variety, Clarke said she had to learn many fake languages for her speeches, but Daenerys's final address for her troops was by far the most challenging.

Halsey has paid off a fan’s speeding ticket after the woman claimed she was driving too fast because she was enjoying her new single "Nightmare".

Twitter user Francesca claimed she was driving home from Pennsylvania State University when she was stopped for speeding.

“I got pulled over… for the first time ever and when asked why I was going 99 in a 70 I was dangerously close to admitting I was bangin out to Halsey’s new song Nightmare,” she said on social media.

“What’s your Venmo. I’ll pay your ticket. Drive safely please!” Halsey said on Twitter.

The singer’s music video for Nightmare, starring Debbie Harry and Cara Delevingne, was released on May 16, and has already reached over 15.5 million views on YouTube.

The original tweet was liked over 4,000 times, and caught the attention of Halsey herself, who transferred Francesca 250 US dollars for the ticket.


Needless to say the interaction has gotten quite a lot of attention. We all stan a queen that supports her fans as much as they support her.



Once the receipt had been paid, Francesca said she “will never forget your kindness and will continue blasting your music forever (just at a safer speed). I’ve never been more grateful or felt less deserving.”

A woman in New York has been praised by police for alerting them to a possible suicide attempt after she mistook a closed umbrella for a person wearing a "Handmaid's Tale" costume. Casey McCormick tweeted she thought she saw “a woman dressed as a handmaid about to jump from a building” and called 911.

The sighting turned out to be a table umbrella which, from a distance, looked much like a handmaid from the seminal Margaret Atwood novel "The Handmaid’s Tale".

The New York Police Department’s news account made it clear on Twitter that McCormick had done the right thing in alerting the authorities.

“Blessed be the umbrella. Thank you Casey and the @POPSUGAR team for alerting us to this crime, glad we could save the day,” they tweeted. “Jokes aside, if you’re ever hesitant about calling 911 – don’t be! We take all calls seriously, and worse case we get to go home with a great story.”

“Better safe than sorry!” one Twitter user replied.
