Nathan and his wife Madison are parents of an infant and a toddler. Nathan is disabled after breaking his back in a car accident in 2010 and can't work. In an attempt to get off assistance and get back on their feet, they applied online for a car loan so that Madison could go back to work. In order to get the $7,000 they were approved for, they were told to wire $600 to the company as collateral. It turned out to be a scam and that was the last of their money.
Nathan called the local news to warn others about the scam. A man named Denis heard their story and, coincidentally, he had been trying to sell his car – a 2007 Jetta. A few days later, Denis met up with Nathan and handed him the keys to the car. Nathan says, “Madison is working full time and we are no longer on assistance….We have a renewed sense of hope not only in our financial future but in our fellow man."
