Phished and Scammed

Last week I attempted to get a personal loan. I searched for loans and many companies called me. Each asked for the same information. I am not very up to speed how private lending works and fell for the scam. The outcome is the scammers were able to convince me to give them money. In order to accomplish this I used a ride service to retrieve the funds and gift cards. I feel real stupid but now have trouble paying my monthly bills. This was an expensive lesson for me as my monthly monies come from social security and a small military disability pension.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
