Victim of a Ponzi-scheme (loss)

I lost everything in a 10 year-long Ponzi-Scheme. After proudly serving many years in the Fire Service and retired, I became a victim, taken by surprise by a ruthless and evil person whom I thought was a friend. I lost several hundred-thousands of dollars in a fraudulent business. More importantly, I lost faith and trust in ordinary people. I learned of the collapse of the Ponzi Scheme with the arrest of the perpetrator, by reading the morning newspaper. I was shaken to the core, and felt the blood drain from my face, as I reached for the phone to call my attorney. At that point, I knew I lost everything.
    Since then, the past 6 years, I received only pennies on the dollar. Distribution of left-over stolen assets, seemed to be held up by a waiting process issued by the bankruptcy court. It was not fair at all. Reparation of funds was certainly not fair. These funds are nearly depleted. 
   So now, I am reaching out to GO FUND ME for help to make me somewhat whole again. Today, I’m 75 years old. I need urgent help to recover my financial loses and hopefully repair my soul so I can make ends meet to enjoy retirement.  GO FUND ME will give me that chance in trusting people once again. Thank you for your understanding, support and personal donation.
