Is there any fast, and legal, way to make 2,000 dollars to pay rent which is due in 15 days? I want to help my boyfriend pay his rent so he doesn't get kicked out of his place (he told me not to worry about it, but I am) and he needs money to stay in his home. And he cant seem to get a job right now. Stupid economy screwed everyone big time! No I am not asking for handouts, just suggestions.

Depends how ethical of a person you are, really. Most quick money-making methods to make that much cash in a short amount of time kind of cross the boundaries of being a bit.. too unethical, but uh. perfectly legal! The first thing that pops up in my mind is maybe to check out the GPT sites out there which are sites that let you fill out offers(you can just fill out the free ones) and make cash by next month(Not sure if you'll necessarily get the money in 15 days from now though, =/) and I dunno if that'll really be anywhere close to $2000. My other suggestion is to well, maybe sell stuff online in a place like Ebay? If you have a whole bunch of cheap junk your junk might be another persons treasure? You could even throw survey sites in the mix & quite a few other things but I still don't think you'll be able to get $2000 in such a short amount of time through ethical means. Another suggestion is uhh. If you're any good at photography to take some nice pictures and attempt to sell them to galleries and other local places around you that might consider a purchse? Writing articles can also be quite profitable. You could try to ask around and check out various publishers from magazines, to online sites that may pay for your writing? You could sell articles anywhere from like. $50-$300+ or if you want to deal with the tinier markets anywhere from $5-$20 per. You could always try applying to a bartending job. If you're good at getting tips you might be able to get that money in no time to help out. Uhh, with that money from anything I mentioned above you should be able to pay at least 1/4 to 2/4th of it, and then just try to get your boyfriend to convince the person to allow some kind of payment plan to pay back the money over time instead of all upfront like that.

Do you have an extra car you can sell? My friend sometimes buys a broken car for around 400, then he will fix it and clean it up to sell for 2000. You can pawn some stuff you don't want. If you have a credit card maybe you could get a cash advance. Do you have some skills to sell? Painting, carpentry etc? If you have a truck you can do hauling of yard waste for people. Maybe you could rent out a room in the house and get a deposit first.
