    I would probably be happy to lend the cash, but I'd need to take the reservations raised above into account:

    1. Passport and Driving License are not acceptable, for obvious reasons. I havne't met you, and don't have to tools to validate those documents.

    2. You have not offered any satisfactory evidence to prove that you can indeed repay the amount.

    3. There is nothing to secure the loan. In the olden days we'd exchange jewellery or whatnot as a security measure, but I have a feeling that wouldn't hold these days.

    4. This is more of a suggestion - could you ask family or friends for help?

    5. Try the Citizen's Advice Bureau. They have been helpful with legal matters for me in the past, although I havne't had financial problems as of yet, thank God.

    I don't mean to be insulting, as I said I'd be more than happy to help - hell that's just the kinda person I am, and it's not for the extra you're offering either, but being a student myself, not being able to prove I'll get that money back is a real niggler for me.

    I do wish you all the best though, and as I said, try family/friends or the Citizen's Advice Bureau. As for the landlord, I agree it's not worth you chasing it up, you'll just have to wait even longer for a resolution and you'll have all the stress and extra baggage of getting that seen to, plus if the landlord is part of a chain or anything it'll make things harder.

    Hussein.

    Hello. I know you said you'd tried some banks, but I don't know if you also had a look at this:

    http://www.moneysupermarket.com/loans/

    The cheapest one there would only mean you had to repay £1235 if you managed to keep up the monthly repayments, and they'd only be £103 compared to the £340 you were proposing.

    Just trying to help, and g'luck with everything.

    You're right, you could probably make £1500 in a week (I have my doubts about a day!) doing bookie/casinos offers, especially if you are just starting out. You would need to do it full-time if you wanted to make that much, that quickly, but I think it is possible. It took me 2 weeks to make my first £1500 from it...

    There are two problems though:

    1.) You need cash in the first place to deposit at casinos and bookies.
    2.) It takes a few days to get money back out, so you might not get it back in time.

    It's not much help just now unfortunately, but it's something you should keep in mind once you get settled and are looking for something to do!

    Thankyou to everyone for your comments and suggestions.
    I've had to resort to one of them Payday loan places, its cost me £20 for every £100 I've borrowed, and only for 30 days, but I need to be back down in Bristol, as my work is down there, so its better off for me to do it this way. I was just hoping there was a way I could avoid the stupidly high charges, as I am going to have to roll it over for another month as well.
    With regards to the sitting on the 5 months rent, I was silly enough to pay that to the landlord at the advice of Tenancy Relations, so it wasn't as if I was behind in the rent at the time of the eviction.
    Anyone know any good solicitors?!
    Once again, thankyou to everyone who took the time to offer thier help

    Hehe, it's my damn curiosity that's keeping me up - Seeing all the posts on betting and making money has got me hooked. But I just a thread that had everyone going about loosing money, and seeming rather pleased with it, that's got me a tad concerned, lol

    I've got lectures tomrrow so I guess I should actually go get an hour's kip before being up at 05:30.

    Finally, you can get rpoints when you join Zopa! Looks like the points are only for borrowers though
