I have heard a lot of stories about how people abroad come home and see that the money they have been saving and sending home for a particular purpose is being misused by the family members, I heard the story of a man that has been abroad for more than 15 years and he has been sending his family money to build a house for him in case he visits Nigeria so he can have a place to stay.

While he was sending the money, the family was using it for other things and they were sending other people building and they will be sending it to the man, not until the day the man decided to come to Nigeria unannounced, according to him, he has been seeing such things on the internet and people talking about it but he trusted that his family won't play him d!rty, well, he just decided to find out for him and he travels down to Nigeria.

When they first saw him, they were surprised cause they weren't expecting him, do they took him to an hotel to stay and they promised to take him to the house the next morning, he went to the hotel and relaxed, hoping to get to see his house the next morning, the morning came and he went to the family house and they offered him food and was entertaining him, they even say that this one he is s a rush to see his house, they said it's not good and he should calm down.

He stayed in the hotel for some couple of days, until he provoked and said that it's enough so he went to the family house with anger and even carried a cutlass for them to show him his house he has been sending more for, they decided to take him to the house, when they got there, he discovered that his house was covered by giant grass that we called elephant grass, the worst part is that they stopped building the house at window level, ever since then they have been using the money for their own needs.

Both the mother, the married sister, and the brother, them was just sharing the money for themselves, they all did him d!rty, the man was in pained cause he never expected that his family would do such a thing to him, especially the mother, the mother didn't feel a thing and she was still claiming that if they don't eat the money as a family, then who will? The man promised to leave and never return to Nigeria again, he told them before leaving that he won't have a family again.

Though that was a bit different from what the lady experienced, I came across the news this evening while scrolling my Facebook feed, according to the site that blogged it, the lady came was from abroad without telling her family that she was coming back, only for she to get home and saw that her child that she has been sending money for his upkeep is looking unkempt, she was so heartbroken, she recorded it and posted it online.

So many people were dropping comments on the post I managed to screenshot two that I found meaningful.

A Facebook name commented: First there is dust all over back home and the children play a lot as compared here in abroad, Secondly no one can take care of your kids like you, people can do only what they can, just appreciate them and learn to take care of your kids yourself

Another user commented: People saying “nobody can care for your child as you do” or “what do you expect” should speak for themselves. I have seen people who take care of their stepchildren better than the mothers, I have seen Aunties taking care of the nieces and nephews more than the mother, I don't know which world you live in but you need to change your cycle.

The lady left the child because she trusted who she left it with and also I know that from time to time the lady must have been calling the person she left the child with on video call and also talking to the child, maybe the person would have been dressing the child in every time she wants to video call her so the child would look good on camera but not the same in reality.

All money she must have been sending for his upkeep will be used for something else, I still believe they are genuine people in this world that has our best interest at the heart but the bad ones don't want to allow us to see it because of their character, may God help us all

That's why sometimes, it is really better to just save and keep to ourselves our own money than to entrust it with somebody else. Well, not everyone will fool us, there are just these circumstances that are intentional and unintentional. Nowadays, if we have someone who we can really trust and rely upon, especially regarding financial matters, we are considered then lucky enough and blessed.

There's nothing painful to be betrayed just because of money and worse is by your own family.

I have heard cases of the first man who was betrayed by his own family. That's so unfair and bad for them to do such thing. They could have just asked him to send them some money instead.

This is very common to us, and those people sending money from abroad or leaving their children behind should know that things don't go well always. I remember when my dad handled a house project for my uncle. I was surprise on the trust level, it was my account they were using to do TRANSACTION and sometimes he'd send money without calling to say, Kingsley check your account.

In this era, we have good ones and bad ones but know one knows...to some extent because it's not written on the forehead and people changes anytime. The best thing to do is give them the project and have means to be be checking and from the far distance, ofcourse it's possible to be checking in this morden world

We have the worst stories here. Last time, we re-watched a news where the mother went to work abroad and she left her son to her cousin. But they were abusing the kid, and he is only 2 years old. Until one day, they killed the kid because of too much violence and abuse. The mother got a call that her son died and she couldn't believe it, then she went home. Glad the murderers and abusers (husband and wife) got arrested immediately.

I don’t know why some people will be so wicked to do to others what they don’t want others to do to them.

How sad how love for money can ruin a relationships. How love for it can forget the love of the family. There are really some people even your relatives can do fraud coz of love for money. So sad but really happening these days.

I would say in terms of money and family you have to be extra careful whom you give responsibilities of it to. These situations are messed up totally which can heartbroken anyone.

This one happening on the real life also, especially the teenagers now. I'm not saying that everyone is the same but most of the teenagers don't care about what their mother will be felt when they are wasting the money that their mother worked hard
