you discovered a mylotter friend was in real need with no other familiar income than PTC? I mean, all family members jobless for more than 6 months, no dole, no gov subvs, and almost no food at home...would you spare some cents at paypal for help?

there was a time that i would have said yes, but i have heard of way too many scams, too many people faking and have scammed so many people out of their hard earned cash. On many sites I have been a part of this has happened and well since then I kind of stear away from that sort of thing. I might be willing to send things, household items I no longer need etc. but never money

I agree with you, it's most of the time a scam. I'm sure those people who really need it and try internet are not making a fuss about their needs, because have not enough reasources to get a computer (unless you live here in a small village where there are free computers with free connection). Interesting your way of help, sending household items you no longer need...like it!! :D

I think it would depend on the friend and just how bad is it. If its just some cents then sure even if its not that bad then I dont mind giving some cents on my funds. If its that bad, then Id have to evaluate whether do I need it at this time or could I give it to the friend and still have time to cover up the funds that Im going to need for personal or business use. Like I said it would be depending on the myLot friend since we all have different personalities. Some would think of it as an insult and then some would gratefully receive it. If it would be just up to me, if I can help in anyway, then Id be glad to.

if its really that bad... why not... i consider it a blessing when i get the chance to help others, because i know the help you extend, the blessing to others you give will return to you a hundred fold. "do unto others what you want others do to you..." the spare money i give a friend, will return back to me in many ways...
