So I need $3,000 to lend a friend to fix their car, but I don’t have it. Where can I get $3,000 ASAP!?
Is there a good online loan company or what other options do I have?
- Don't lend money to anyone.30
- Tell your friend to try getting a loan from a bank, but never let a friend borrow money from you. That can and does ruin friendships.30
- So you need to borrow money in order to lend money? Why doesn't your friend cut out the middle-man and just borrow the money themselves? That way, you don't have to be saddled with your friend's problem and they can deal directly with the lender.
Lending money to a friend or family member is a surefire way to ruin that relationship.
EDIT: I should clarify a bit. Never lend anything that you're unwilling, unable, or incapable of losing to a friend or family member. If you're a millionaire and you don't really care if you ever see the $3,000 again, then lend it. If you're living paycheck-to-paycheck and losing $3,000 will set you back for months (maybe even years), then don't lend it. It's a personal choice every single time, whether it's paying for a movie ticket, paying for a meal, helping them with their rent, helping them fix their vehicle, or getting them their much needed repairs for their private jet. The scales may change, but in the end it's all about what you're willing to lose. For instance, I have no issue paying for dinner when I'm out with my friends because I know that they have no issue with paying for dinner when it's their turn. If I was always the one buying dinner, I'd feel a little different about the situation.40
- $3000 is a lot to fix a car unless it's been involved in a accident in which case their insurance would cover it, Besides why can't they apply for a loan themselves, I know you want to help your friend but this sounds a bit off to me.30
- With $3000, they can buy a good used car. Let them find it themselves.00
- I agree with others, it’s not your responsibility.00
- Never, ever lend money to anyone - especially to a friend.
You're almost certainly going to lose both the money and your friend.
If your friend needs the money, tell them to get a loan.
It's not your problem.10
- $3,000 is a lot to fix a car. That sounds like a wreck, in which case why didn't their Insurance cover it? If there wasn't any wreckage then they, and you are likely being ripped off. Are you 100% positive this is why they need the money?
Why can't your friend apply for a loan to obtain This funding themselves? If you don't have it, then tell them. They should NOT expect it from you. $3,000 plus interest is a significant amount of money to lose. Would you be okay with the extremely likely chance that you will NEVER get this back? Leaving you stuck with the burden of paying off this loan. Loaning money puts a huge strain and risk on friendships. Don't gamble on anything you're not willing or can't risk/afford to lose.00
- Never loan a friend money, because there is a very chance you will never get it back. Let your friend get a loan from from a financial institution.10
