Get hold of the Attorney General of the state of Oregon. Send him the picture, with story. Or just e-mail them, they will help. Plus you need to get hold of the Red Cross of Oregon too, they'll surely will help. Take Care......

Mrsjacob, would you please READ and try to COMPREHEND what you're reading before you go into your ATTACK miode? First you attacked me for stating I thought this was phony and now you're attacking me because I stated many families need help. Getagrip!

MRS.jACoB says ... on Saturday, Aug 29 at 2:46 PM

UNDERSTAND WHAT? THAT DOESNT PROVE ANYTHING JUST BECAUSE ONE PERSON POST A PHONY STORY DOESNT MEAN THERE ARENT PPL OUT THERE IN NEED...

Thank you, mythbuster, for proving my point. There are too many families out there that need our help, and when someone tries to defraud our kindness, it makes me angry. Sorry for my cynicism, WOW and MRS.jACoB, but maybe now you'll understand.

I too thought there was something off, but whatever. She should call Fair Housing at (503) 223-8295. They will be able to get this landlord for her, and probably help her find a new place.

CanOrAz you are not the KATU YouNews police! So stop trying to be so cynical and judgemental! When people are down and need help its not the time to pick on them even more and make them feel even more miserable. Do you have family/friends? I bet no

Wow says ... on Friday, Aug 21 at 4:27 AM

CanOrAz you are so cynical! How dare you come off like that! You are reading way to much between the lines and trying to find fault. Should this person seek help from CAS or the landlord tenant union or HUD they will check out the validness.

Mrs.jACoB, I was not picking on the author's spelling and grammer. I was saying just the opposite. I think a very intelligent person wrote this and tried to make it sound as though they were foreign or illiterate. In other words, I think it's fake.

MRS.jACoB says ... on Thursday, Aug 20 at 12:53 PM

HERE U PEOPLE GO AGAIN, CANT U JUST STOP? NOT EVERYONE IS PERFECT AT GRAMMER OR SPELLING AND ALL SOME PEOPLE DO IS FIND THE ERROR IN SOMETHING.... WHAT A SAD LIFE YOU MUST HAVE, FULL OF JUDGMENT AND HEGATIVITY, JUST LET PEOPLE LIVE WE R NOT PERFECT

CanOrAz says ... on Thursday, Aug 20 at 11:24 AM

There's just something about this story, and the way you've written about it, that just doesn't sound right to me. I think it's because you're illiterate writing appears forced. Too many areas of your story show non-illiterate thought process/writing

You also need to stay out of the house until such time as it has been cleaned up. This could be a form of black mold which is a nero-toxin and will effect everyone one's central nervous system. You need to contact the Oregon Department of Health.

U SHOULD GIVE THE PHONE #..... WHAT ARE UR KIDS? BOYS OR GIRLS? I HAVE A 2 YR OLD BOY AND HE HAS ALOT OF CLOTHS HE HAS GROWN OUT OF LET ME KNOW....

You need to contact HUD or the landlord tenant union. I had a similar problem and once they get involved if your story is true then they will help you! They completely took over and handled everything me! I didn't have to do anything! Call them!
