"I was sharing an apartment with a close friend of four years.

"Everything was just dandy until one Monday morning where I was woken up by my landlord, who was surprised to see me and told me I shouldn't be there as I'd been evicted!

"Turns out for the past three months my thieving wagon of a roommate had taken the rent money I had sent her and spent it on nights out and festivals and the like – alongside me, I should add.

A month’s rent would really help out since I’m down my deposit and I’m too tall to sleep on couches

"Whilst this was going on, the landlord was emailing us both threatening eviction. Not only would she would lie and say the money will be sent soon, blah blah blah, but she had also hacked into my email and blocked him from contacting me, leaving me completely in the dark about everything.

"So last Monday, to beat all other terrible Mondays, I woke up to find out that I had been robbed of my money and of my home where I lived and loved for two years.

"The aftermath of this web of lies is me being left homeless and severely out of pocket. So a month’s rent would really help out since I’m down my deposit and I’m too tall to sleep on couches.
