You were recently and unknowingly an accomplice to fraud and credit card theft. You’re a freelancer with a client who frequently used your services; you built trust, and then he asked you to transfer some money for him as a paid favor. Your poor judgment, kindness, and greed led to where you are now. Now the real credit card owners are issuing chargebacks, which are draining your account, and you don’t have their money because you sent the money to someone else. What do you do? We’ll try to answer this and more on this Feedback Friday!
And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at email@example.com. Now let’s dive in!
On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- Interested in doing some prison time with Jordan next February? It’s filling up fast; reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for details!
- You were unknowingly an accomplice to credit card fraud. Now the real credit card owners are issuing chargebacks, which is draining your account and you don’t have their money because you sent the money to someone else. What do you do?
- Because you’re in the entertainment industry, you’ve been getting nipped and tucked for years and you look much younger than your time on earth would indicate. Is it imperative that you tell your new significant other about your cosmetic procedures?
- Your future in-laws seem to be in a financially abusive relationship — with one taking more than their fair share from the other — to the point that you hope they divorce. Are you out of line by wishing for this?
- What do you do when a friend, colleague, family member, or loved one seems to be losing their marbles before your very eyes?
- You’ve been growing your network with great success over the past few years, which is awesome. What’s not so awesome is worrying about how to balance the time you spend with these connections as your network grows. How can you keep quality job one in this case?
- Even when you know a recent breakup was for the right reasons, it’s hard not to ruminate over where they are, who they could be with, what they’re thinking, if they are thinking of you, and whether they’ll ever return one day. How can you move on?
- You’ve legally adopted your wife’s 16-year-old, but he’s troubled. How do you get him to see the errors of his ways? How do you look at him without wanting to snap at him? How do you lead him to want to better himself, grow, and not just do the minimum?
- You’re a 16-year-old, and your parents have strange beliefs. They make you eat weird things, they don’t let you have social media or watch TV, and they don’t let you go anywhere. It’s hard to make friends in such a controlled environment because everyone thinks you’re the odd one, and it’s wearing on you. Waiting the two years before you can legally escape seems like forever. What can you do in the meantime?
- Life Pro Tip: If buying clothes for a friend or relative’s young child, always overestimate their size. Kids grow fast, so the larger clothes are guaranteed to fit at some point.
- Recommendation of the Week: Diagnosis
- A quick shout out to Nicolas from Denmark!
