Approximately at 9:30 this morning I found out I got scammed and taken advantage of selling my furniture on Ebay. I was at breakfast this morning with one of my daughters and my card didn’t go through. I called Chase bank and they said I had negative funds in my account. I told my daughter to drop me off at Chase bank where I deposited and cashed the check yesterday.
This was my first transaction on Ebay, I should have done more due diligence. The person who called himself Dennis yesterday sent me a cashier’s check for $1,250, more than my asking price and said that I would need to take that $1,250 and Western Union the money to his moving company that picks furniture up for him all over the country. I went to my bank, deposited the check and followed the steps. Well less than 24 hours, here I am writing about my mistake. I could beat myself up and use negative talk like Chris your so stupid or chalk it up as a lesson, however the bigger lesson is how would I respond to the situation.
At 9:40 am Chase confirmed it was fraud and were apologetic about my present situation. I took a deep breath and wrote this text to the person who I did this transaction with:
My friend – there is hold on the check. I have negative funds in my bank. I’m a single Dad with 3 girls and needed to sell that table. God bless you. I would stop this behavior.
Then I took another moment and prayed for that individual for him not to do this anymore. Does this individual care about my situation, probably not. The Truth is what matters here is that I’m sharing my truth to him and now to all who read this blog.
Instead of getting wrapped up in all the negative emotion I went right to 10am yoga class as planned. Part of my daily spiritual fitness routine. See earlier I did my rosaries, meditation and now yoga. See living a spiritual fit lifestyle is a priority for me. When shit like this happens the opposite happens; I get stronger. I come to my breath, I pray for those who may cross me and in this case I’m very much grateful. It got me writing again. The days I’m counting to self-publish my book and start spreading story that needs to be heard. This is all training from a higher power to see how I will respond when it may seem like I’m at an all-time low. My response I’m ready! I’m at an all-time high!
I’ll sum up what was posted on my Instagram this morning before I found out all about this stuff.
