I talked to my best friend today and she is so discouraged about this money thing that is going on. For those of you that know it involves both of our families. The people from the IRS that stole our money from our bank account have been indicted and our case has been turned over to the US Treasury Dept. All we know is that there is a case #. This could drag on for years because we can't seem to get anyone in the US government to help us and we can't afford to hire an attorney. My friend is laid off indefinitely and her rent is due and no way to pay it. Her husband is disabled and his disability has not started yet. They have 2 small children to take care of. This case is close to $1,000,000.00 so the government is in no hurry to repay us what was stolen. We have been living with my mom for almost 4 yrs now because that money was suppose to buy our new home and we cannot afford to pay rent to move out. There is enough money to pay off all of our bills plus a new home with no mortgage and pay my friends bills and her a new home and car. This money all originated from property that was sold by my friends family to help us when we lost our home when my husband was laid off and I got cancer. Also my friend took money out of her IRA to help us and to help her own family and when the money went into the bank the IRS froze it and 5 employees from the IRS stole the money and have been moving it around trying not to get caught but finally got the internal affairs office involved and they went in undercover and found out that our money had been stolen. I just don't know what to do but pray and when I see my friend losing faith it is hard for me to encourage her when I keep having the same problem. It is so hard to understand why God would lead someone to sell property to give us the money to buy a home with and then allow the devil to keep us from getting it. It is so hard to keep the faith for so long when we can never see anything positive happening. Today my friend was saying things that really have me worried. I know it is just that she is so hurt and disappointed but she was talking about how she never wanted to pick up another bible or go back to church and how she doesn't believe any of it anymore, I told her that attitude is not going to help us at all and that I understand how she feels because I have had my doubts too but it just worries me that she will totally lose faith and go back to her old lifestyle,which was not a good one.Please pray for both of our families we are in such financial need right now that we don't know what to do. We are struggling right now to even buy groceries and medicine. Our daughter paid for hubby to go to the doctor yesterday and bought his medicine then gave us money to help buy groceries and it makes me feel so bad but if we hadn't let her help we couldn't have done it ourselves. Please please pray for us all!!

    The simple answer here is, God didn't lead them to do any of their dirty work. So, that's the wrong question.

    Have you enlisted the help of your local TV news station?

    You really should contact your local television station. Sometimes when they put a story out there, they community will donate to you and your family. Usually, they give so much that some of it has to be donated again to others! A lot of times, they just donate money, if that is what you need, pray on it, then call your local tv station! I will pray for you too!

    This is so horrible to even think about. All the worry can certainly damage one's health. I have said a prayer for you.

    Prayers are continuing. I think that the price the thieves should pay is a lot higher than what you innocent people are now paying. It is really a challenge to face these problems. I don't know what you can do, but they do say that when there is nothing left to do but pray - PRAYER is enough. (HUGS) hope you have a lovely and blessed Easter and that your friends do also. I am keeping both of your families in my prayers.

    I know this has been going on for such a long time. No wonder your friend is discouraged. If the suggestion about contacting your state rep does not work how about your local news station.

    Prayers are being lifted up for you, your friend and thank you prayers also for those who have been able to help. Hugs.

    Just a suggestion......Have you contacted your state senator and respresentatives?

    My husband was getting the runaround(a different thing) however, when I wrote our
    U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, and asked for help I did get replies and actual
    phone calls.............
