Buyer Beware

Posted on | November 10, 2015 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
A close friend of mine asked me to contribute to a charity that she is very involved with.  It wasn’t something that I was personally interested in but I made a contribution as a personal favor to my friend.  Shortly after I sent the money, I heard that the charity had gone out of business due to financial problems.  I asked my friend if I could get my money back and she said that my contribution went to pay for debts that the charity had incurred.  I am beyond furious. Don’t you think my friend should pay me back the $1,000 that I sent to HER charity?

Dear Pissed:
We get it, but ultimately, the choice to contribute was yours. Sorry.
