    Hello guys, i've recently lost my job and have fell behind on the rent and owe my landlord close to £2000. He says he'll be round first thing on Wednesday and want £500 otherwise he'll kick me out onto the street. So i roughly have 48 Hours to raise that money.

    So tell me guys, is it possible to raise that sort of money in 48Hours and if so how?

    BTW I have no money to invest.

    Well if you have any credit then yes it is quite possible. If you don't have credit, but have some passive incomes from sites/blogs/fiverr then maybe. If you have none of those things well you might have a problem.

    You could either get a loan, or borrow from a friend to pay the debt. Selling items of value. Going to the casino is an option. Other than that I hear many illicit activities pay well.

    I currently have no income from blogs or adsense as i had a stable job and never really saw the need for stacks of money, just enough to get by. And I considered casinos but its up to chance, and i really don't want to lose the little i have left.

    The internet doesn't really work that way. If you have no skills, no website, and no clients to work with, I honestly don't see how you would get that money by Wednesday. Even if miraculously someone hired you for writing work or some other menial job, and they hired you right now, even if they paid you upfront (which would be very stupid on their part) it would be difficult to get that money into your landlord's hands by Wednesday.

    Sell your stuff or get a loan. You have put yourself in a situation where you have very few options. Maybe you should have gotten serious about this stuff when you lost your job, not 48 hours before your landlord expects the money or else.

    I know i should have tried to raise the money a while ao but i'm one of them people that thinks 'Oh it wont happen to me' or 'I'll win the lottery or something and it will be fine' or 'oh, he'll let me off for another month but hey, thats just the guy I am!

    You should check with your local housing authority. Here in ohio USA a landlord cant just walk in and put you out... there's a process..... they have to give a 3 day notice to the tennant to leave the property and if the tenant doesn't leave, then the landlord HAS to file an eviction in court, which will take at least a week or two to get into court of which if the tenant shows up to the hearing and explains the situation the judge can and probably would give you 30 days to leave... buying you a month to come up with something :)

    Hope that helps. That is not legal advice just how it works here in ohio... check with your local law enforcement/housing authority.

    Okay, I guess this is my 3 day warning he has given me but he is a rather big bloke and i'd rather not mess with him. Can someone remind me of squatters rights again? :rolleyes:

    if you're renting you're screwed. if you own the property it's another thing.

    I've tried something similar, put a large video clip in a rar archive and password protect it uploading a text document with the password in to sharecash, i uploaded this to tpb, isohunt and megaupload and spammed the link on youtube and facebook, i made a grand total of $1.50

    If you can write, try writing articles for people. Another option is doing something on fiverr. Worse case, try mowing people's lawns or doing some yard work. Its a lot of money, but with a little creativity and hard work you can do it.

    I'm not to great at writing but i'll have a look at the freelancer section anyway, and I'm not the most creative person in the world so i wouldn't know what to sell on fiverrr, A few days ago i set up a twitter hopping to make some money with twtmob but my account got banned after i brought 3k of followers of fiverr.

    Ask your parents or family members or friends to help, also local charites are also a good option dude, that is short term, long term try to find a job and look into welfare for a short amount of time, use welfare cash for rent, but try to find a job pronto

    No offense, but people keep giving you ideas and you keep making excuses. You're in this position for a reason, take action and figure something out.

    Hell, pick up the phone and start calling businesses and offer some sort of service, you have to have some sort of marketable skills.

    I don't think anyone is just going to give you $500 if that's what your hoping for.
