I was upset & said "that not ok I have bills 2 pay & 2 kids I'm raising I needed that $$$ to pay my rent" she then said "there was nothing she could do!" I asked her for the corporate offices phone number & she hung up on me!!! I'm so upset & don't know how to handle this situation??? Can anybody give me sum advice plz should I contact a lawyer!? Me & my 2 baby's are staying in a motel that I pay weekly & will be homeless if I can't pay for the room!!??
