4 Ways to Know Someone’s Using You for Your Money

4 Ways to Know Someone's Using you for Your Money

Something’s fishy today. It’s odd but your friend’s acting weird again. At first, they were all cool and as time passed they became “bipolar”. Most likely they aren’t bipolar but they do have something up their sleeve. You just don’t know what it is yet until you check your bank accounts online and find nothing in your checking account.

What happened? I know what happened. Your friend happened. All of a sudden it all comes running back to you and you’ve been paying their way through life for some time. What’s crazy is that you try to see the good in that person but there’s a time in your life where you need to admit when someone has lost it and when you’ve been fooled.

Don’t be the fool and notice these 3 signs before it’s too late and you have nothing left.


Two months ago they were perfect. They were your best friend and got to know you a lot more but when you realize it, you know nothing about them. Three years ago everything was great but now they can’t control their emotions and what they say. It is driving you insane.


One day they say one thing and then do something else. They tell you their mom is sick and they can’t pay her hospital bill and ask you to help out pay. Later you see their mom grocery shopping. It’s another lie that you catch them in and you’re out $50. Slowly you’ll notice that you were paying for more and more things that they don’t have the money for.


They can’t keep a job. One day they’re working at an amusement park and the next at the mall. They can’t keep a job. They want a free ride and soon you’ll see them slowly leave your life but come back to borrow your things or ask for money. They’ll tell you they aren’t working right now or they’ll ask to go out to eat and hang out and have you pay for them.

You are too late


Your friend disappeared and now you owe so much. They convinced you to join in on them on loans, contracts or a lease and they’re gone.

I feel your pain, my friend. We all make mistakes. This is one mistake that I hope you realize before it’s too late. Everyone wants to look at the best in a person but some people are in a different place in life and feel they need to take advantage of people. Some people don’t even realize they’re doing it. Don’t give up on humanity. Watch out.
