Cierra contacted me in need of $400 for costs related to a legal case she was dealing with. With no income and no options, she didn't have any way to get the bill paid and was concerned about getting on the bad side of the court.
We had a discussion about the nature of the issue and her options. We discovered her bill was actually smaller than originally thought - $225. Definitely more welcome than the 400 dollar tab. It pays to examine bills and fees closely so that you're not overpaying when you don't have the spare cash for it anyway.
I provided Cierra with the money she needed and the bill was paid. We've agreed to keep in touch, which I thought was nice too.
