Firstly, desperatley probably is spelt wrong but meh. Also, i'm not asking for money from anyone here, i'm asking for IDEAS! Alright guys. I'm 19, I work in a mediocre telemarketing position in New Zealand for $17 an hour, with 18 hours a week. I'm wanting to buy a tactical Steyr scout which is $3800. Problem is, I don't have the money and I need some suggestions on how to get some FAST. I could get a second job yes, I have thought of that. A bank loan I already have and credit cards are bad so those ideas are gone already. Can anyone add anything else?

EDIT: Ahh crap, this is supposed to be in "General Disussion" could a mod move it to there please?

Stop taking out loans and don't use credits cards but I think you have that covered.

Money isn't going to appear out of thin air. There are ways of making money, but non of them are "Fast", and either way is a gun such an emergency purchase?

Ways of making money;

Own a popular website? Find yourself a advert provider like Google Adsence and / or a banner advert broker, and pimp that site for all it's worth.

Tons of junk lying about? One word. E-bay.

If you have a website, it always can sure use teh old donate button. And if you have a moral issue with putting one up, say to yourself "It's either the donate button, or use the website funds for the gun".

Work overtime. Scout for promotion. Something like that.

Cut your cable TV down to the basic channels and pocket the savings.

Half your connection speed and pocket the savings

Buy stupid things like toilet roll en-masse and sell it on for an inflated sum (okay, i'm getting silly now...)

Good luck :p

If you already have a bank loan and bad credit cards I suggest you direct that $3800 to pay them off and build your credit up. A second job is a great idea if you are in deep right now. Go for it.

Stop being an asshole telemarketer, and get a real job. Work somewhere that sells this firearm, maybe you can get a discount.

Just go out and buy a ski mask and a gun and mug some poor shmuck in a back alley for all hes worth. It works for me everytime. ;) As far as conning peole out of their money, buy something expensive and say your selling it on ebay. But put in a microscopic disclaimer that your only selling a picture of the expensive item. Its worked for me b4. Seriously though, overcharge for something on ebay. Or claim its one of a kind, which really seems to work on some people.

if not e-bay, host a garage sale.

Word Of advice; Have a few people and dont put sigsn up the day before. Oh and dont give street address in news paper till a later date. If so, people will come at night time.

Steryr scout damn no offense dude but for $3800 it seems like a waste, I mean there is alot you can do with $3,800, hell you live in NZ get yourself a Lithgow SMLE. I plan on buying a rifle myself it will be a Mosin Nagant 91/30 for $100 but i make it my goal never to waste more than $250 rifle.

Do with this guy did instead

Just how desperate? ;)

You could always go all out, cancel internet, use no power, work your ass off, and busk on the streer.

Get a better paying job if you can. Do odd jobs.
