By the way, why did you label your landlord as "not nice?" I don't mean to sound heartless, but blaming your landlord isnt right either.

Sounds like you are going through a hard time, but also sounds like you havent paid your bills and are getting evicted. Why should the landlord be suffering due to your issues?

Having the RV towed off the lot will cost the landlord money. Money, you will owe.

Prior to getting evicted there is a process, and it takes months. You have plenty of time to move and make arrangements. You could have sold the RV. You could have voluntarily moved out.

Landlords are people too. You don't just get to saddle them with your unpaid obligations. I hope you have a plan to pay the landlord back for any money you might owe.

I am sure this forum and Iím this world is full of good decent people, but please remember there are people out there who scam others with a story that tugs at anyones heart strings. I get the emails, messenger messages and Instagram messages from (who knows who is on the other end of the computer) these men tell me I am beautiful and then tell me their wife just died and they are raising one or sometimes more children and he is looking for a new wife. Oh brother 🤔🤦*♀️ I am cautious and some people in here are right about how much help there is. She can go to any church ⛪️ or community center for help. I really enjoyed reading some of these comments. None were harsh to me. Got to love the Freedom of Speech 🎤

Sure. So, the landlord was the bad guy? Explain why her issues should be the landlords issues…

The landlord is likely out thousands…

No shame needed. If you have a big heart, I’m sure the landlord would love it if you paid her bills. I’m sure he would be open to it.

I feel sympathy towards anyone who loses a loved one. But I do object to her portrayal that the landlord was the villain…

If you contact many churches they might be able to help you with getting the keys replaced.

Well, it looks like Stephanie's feelings may have been hurt and she might not respond to any message. I sympathize with Stephanie. I understand her situation. I have rental units. But, I have a very reliable good manager who handles anything that comes up with dignity.

It must be very hard to manage considering the circumstances Stephanie explained. She didn't ask anyone to pay her bills. She simply needs directions for a way to handle her problems. No one is forced to do anything.

When someone is in dire need, we can turn a cold shoulder and have an attitude or we can respond in kindness. I've found every situation is different.

Stephanie is a new member and has posted a total of once.

Is it really all that unreasonable for people to be skeptical of posts like this? Would it be reasonable to assume that if "Stephanie" was in actual need, she would have been responding to suggestions and offers of assistance?

Being skeptical of similar posts is not evidence of thinking only of one's own welfare and/or being insensitive. Actually, it is evidence that there are too many unscrupulous people that have created this environment. How much unsolicited email do you get asking for donations? Being on this forum provides no credibility.

Many of the skeptical have not stopped contributing to causes and helping others in need.

What "Stephanie" has managed to make people to do is to spend time on is this topic.

But the topic should probably be: How to become a more trusting society. In a society that has too many untrustworthy individuals taking advantage of others.

Reads exactly like a scam. Nothing here we can verify. As others have said, there are a lot of places that "Stephanie" can go to get actual help. Why would she come to the internet and ask on this forum? Before you send anything, stop and redirect it to a verifiable charity in her area. Same help, just with a bit more assurance that it's going to someone who actually needs it. Bravo for those that offered to go to Stephanie and help get her RV moved. Happy to join you. Let's don't be shocked if she doesn't take us up on that.

We own rentals too. For whatever reason landlords and property owners are depicted as mustache twirling villains when we're just running a business like anyone else. COVID crushed a lot of us because people were free to not pay us without recourse and there was no Government help for us. We gave up two units not because the tenants couldn't pay, but because they wouldn't and we were hemorrhaging money. Forgive us for being a little touchy about being depicted as the bad guy every time.

If the landlord was smart he would get a locksmith out there and get the MH going.

Evidence says "Stephanie M" hasn't returned since that one post AND her stated deadline for getting something done passed a week ago.

So can we let this one go?

With that, this thread is closed. It's over a week past the deadline and the OP has not returned.

Thank you to all that offered help.
