I apologize very deeply for this interruption. I just wanted to message you and see if you had a minute to review our site, https://financialassistanceforsinglemothers.com/. If you could add us to your resource page, i would be obliged for a lifetime. Thanks, again, for your time.

I hope your Thursday is going well. My name is Ted and I'm reaching out on behalf of a company that works to help increase the presence of Syracuse University's Whitman Business School's online programs.
Today, I came across the Personal Finance Resources page located on the School for Champions website below:
I found the page to be a highly notable compilation of financial literacy resources and wanted to quickly reach out to see if you're open to providing your students with an additional credit resource to refer to?
If so, Syracuse University has recently published an article titled "The Cost of a Bad Credit Score". The article provides information on what a credit score is, how it's calculated, and why it's important. This information is also presented in a helpful infographic at the bottom of the article. I thought this would be a valuable resource to your students as starting off one's credit on the right foot is an important step to financial literacy.
Would you be open to this additional personal finance resource on the web page?
Thank you for your consideration.
Ted - USA (28897)
Thanks for the suggested resource. I added a link to the article from the Personal Finance Resources page.
Best wishes for success in your work.

I’m an Outreach Associate working with U.S. News & World Report. I wanted to connect with you because I saw all your resources on your website and it really stood out to us here at U.S. News & World Report! We really appreciated all the insights and tips you are able to provide and are hoping that you might be interested in additional student financial literacy resources. Perhaps this is something you might want to share with your readers?
If you find the content valuable, I would love the opportunity to collaborate with you and share our study on your website, so that your audience has access to these resources. Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in discussing further.
Thank you for your consideration,

I hope you're having a good day!
Your list was really informative. I'm currently doing some article research about student loans and credit cards and these resources was a great help!
I wonder if you can consider these added, I found some updated loan lenders that might be helpful for other students too, I hope you can check it out (If you have time):
1. Best Student Loans
2. 9 Best Companies for Student Loan Refinancing and Consolidation in 2018
All the best,

In return Peyton wanted to share with you this page, Financial Literacy . It's a guide to money management and financial literacy. She was thinking it would make a you should add it to your page, what do you think?
Whether you add it or not we wanted to say thanks!! If you do decide to add it, please let me know! She would be happy to see it was added and also would show her fellow scouts :)

Receiving money from North Korea
July 1, 2017
Can a person send you money from North Korea will you be able to receive the money
Doris - USA (28111)
As far as I know PayPal does not have dealings with North Korea.
There are ways to send money to people in North Korea. as well as to receive money. This is usually done through brokers in China.
I would like to cancel a transaction
June 3, 2017
i would like to cancel a transaction i made with Newchic
william - UK (28071)
You can check with PayPal UK to see their procedures.
You also should be able to cancel through Newchic online. And finally, you should be able to cancel payment through your credit card company.
Best wishes in cancelling your transaction.

I'm going to be graduating from college at the end of this spring semester and have been trying to educate myself on financial literacy. I just wanted to say that I found your personal finance resources to be better than those of my college. The only topic that I would like to offer a suggestion about is the lack of personal finance resources that are specifically targeted to new college graduates. Since April is financial literacy month and also close to the end of the school year, it's the perfect time to provide new resources for college graduates. I’ve been doing a lot of research on this topic and have kept my favorite financial literacy resources saved in a bookmarks folder. I was thinking other students or recent graduates on your page may find them helpful as well, so I wanted to see if you'd like to check them out.
Carl - USA (28010)
Yes, I'd be interested in seeing your suggested resources to add to the site.
Opening PayPal account in South Africa
March 28, 2017
I want to open PayPal account so I'm struggling I don't know how to nd how to receive the card.I'm in South Africa.
Thobeka - South Africa (27966)
You can sign up PayPal for South Africa.
PayPal does not issue cards. Once you have an account set up with PayPal, you can log in to send or receive funds from a bank account or credit card.
See the PayPal Help Page for more information.
I hope that helps.
List of top investing books
February 21, 2017
I was looking for some information on investing this morning when I came across your excellent Finances resource page.
I actually just published something you might enjoy. To keep it short, I combined the reading lists of 24 top investors/institutions to make a list of the most recommended investing books of all time.
It might make a good fit for your page. Either way, keep up the awesome work!
RJ - USA (27896)
Thanks for the resource. I added a link to Personal Finances Resources.
Best wishes for success in your work.
Can we use paypal in Myanmar?
January 30, 2017
Can we use paypal in myanmar
Ch - Myanmar (27843)
Apparently PayPal had been blocked on Myanmar, but it is now available. One site giving information is Payment from Myanmar with Visa. There are other sites also giving advice.
Check the PayPal site on service in Myanmar for some information.
Best wishes in using PayPal.

Good morning Ron,
With a growing interest among college students to educate themselves about their unique financial situation, I thought the School for Champions might benefit from the information in our newly published 'Survival Guide to Personal Finance for College Students' — https://www.annuity.org/financial-literacy/students/. This piece - written by our Financial Literacy team at Annuity.org, provides tips for students on how to manage their finances before, during and after college. It explores questions such as “When Should I Fill Out My FAFSA?”, “How Do Student Loans Work?” and “Should I Consider Early Investing Options?”
We thought by reaching out to y'all, we could further the education about this important issue and hopefully help students feel financially secure as they enjoy the college experience. I hope you consider sharing this important resource for students with questions about their personal finances on your School of Champions' 'Personal Finance Resources' page.

My name is Laura and I am a Mathematics teacher. I have been researching for good resource material for my summer program class and came across your page, http://school-for-champions.com/finances/resources.htm
It was complete and very useful so thank you for your helpful resource! I came across another page that I am now also using, http://creditcritics.com/financial-literacy/.
The page has some great information and I wanted to share it with you in case you were interested in including it alongside your other resources for other teachers to find. Let me know your thoughts! :)
Thanks again and have a wonderful day!
