I am kinda looking for a quick fix
I've never been in this situation before. I just got hit with a very important bill equal to around 2 months of my salary, needing to be paid in a week. I don't have it in savings, I don't know of anyone to borrow it from, and I don't really want to go the route of cash advances. It has to be paid cash. I don't even know where to begin. I have a pretty low income, so I am worried that no bank would give me a loan. I am in the process of sending out resumes but that still isn't going to have a large amount of cash in my account by Christmas Eve. I don't really even know about getting a loan - I don't have a car as collateral since I owe more on my car than its worth, I don't own a home or anything valuable. Maybe a couple thousand in jewelry, but that's all I can think of. If I go the loan route, do I want to try a local bank or a big bank? So what are my options on getting a quick fix on cash? I know no matter how hard I worked this next week, I could not come up with that amount of cash on time.
