Help Me Get out of Here: A Wronged Teacher in Need

Help Me Get out of Here: A Wronged Teacher in Need

By 3WM (the author wishes to remain anonymous here due to the situation; contact e-mail below)

I need to get out of here.

I need to sell my stuff and just focus on recovering from an unexpected surgery.

Tried to pay the hospital bill, but my insurance had been canceled.

Knowing I was to be released on Tuesday, the company had called and canceled my insurance Monday.

The bill tripled.

I explained to the hospital I didn’t have the money.

I explained that once I sold my furniture from my house, I could pay.

The company told me I might as well stay in the hospital and think over my situation.

I was locked in the hospital for two days for lack of payment.

While in the hospital, the company entered my apartment and changed the locks.

A friend went to my apartment with the police to open the door just so that I could get my daily medicine. We were refused and told it was a civil matter.

Another friend intervened regarding the bill, and though I was in so much pain and could barely walk, I only needed to pay 150% of my insured rate, instead of 300%.

I had no place to go when I got out, so I resorted to a locksmith so that I could at least enter the apartment for my medication.  The landlord arrived as we attempted to open the lock.  He sent the locksmith away.  I agreed to meet with the company representative, but asked him to meet me halfway or in between because doctor’s orders were I should just be recovering.

They refused. I had to go to them.

Finally, I was let in.  Thank God all my things were still there.

I’m in a bind and need to sell a ton of items and appliances now.

I picked and bought all the items and most are less than a year old because the company didn’t furnish my apartment at all. They just gave me an empty room.

I need to get out of here.

I can’t even afford a ticket to leave Korea after hospital fees and the company’s fees for the apartment.

Selling Furniture = Freedom to Leave Korea + Chance to Recover
