Guard Dog & Greedy People

So, I always read on facebook of people getting hit in a parking lot and the person doesn't leave a note and it makes them mad...

 Well, Kendall accidentally hit someone (two weeks ago) and there was no damage, BUT out of the kindness of our hearts we leave a note. Now they are calling us with "lawyers" because they say there is damage, say they have video footage of ME hitting them, and manipulated me to give them our address and showed up at our doorstep this morning. I am not okay with this. Might I add, that we were on our way to trade in the vehicle we were driving when we kissed her bumper, so we don't even have the vehicle anymore.

We did what we were supposed to do. Technically, even if there was damage I wouldn't have to pay for it because there is no proof and no police report. Now, people are trying to scam us and scare us into paying them money. It is scary what greed can do to people. Now, I am scared to be at my home by myself. Thank goodness for a super duper guard pup. He loves and protects his mommy.

I called the police and they are on call if they come back.
I looked up the "law firm", it doesn't exist. They gave us two different names of the law firm they were under. The lady has given us two different names Mrs. *H* and Mrs. *C*. The number the "lawyer" is calling from is a cell phone. The "lawyer" called me on a Saturday at 8 p.m. The hospital does not have security cameras in the back of the parking lot.

Something is fishy here....
I had to rant today, these negative posts don't happen very often, but I am a little on edge today. I feel violated.


Meditating on this verse for now:

‎"for this is a gracious thing, when mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. When Jesus was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly"

  1. Aw, bless your heart! Our Sunday School lesson yesterday was on giving and helping people, and how God commands us not to be tight-fisted or hard-hearted. We discussed in our class how difficult it is to HELP people or REACH OUT to people when so many people these days are just looking for a new edge, looking for a new way to scam somebody out of something. It's horrible. I'm so sorry...

  2. It's sad that we try to do the right thing and someone clearly takes advantage of that. You need to have your guard up at times and these days there are just people that can't be trusted. You have a big heart and I hope this all works out. Next time they call tell them that you have contacted the police and would like the accident officially on record. If they are scam artists, they will go away after that. Keep Us Posted! And Be Careful...
    btw- beautiful pup!

  8. wow! That lady is crazy! At least you looked into it all and know what is fact and fiction. Although I can definitely see why it is scary for them to know your address. I am so sorry that you have to go through this, especially when you did the right thing and they are just trying to take advantage of that. Just be strong and know that He is on your side!
