Hi, I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan to pay the duty tax of my bank draft and to start up a new business. I was at the verge of loosing all my belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested. Although I was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and then I began to look online and ran into their email at: ( ) where I was given a loan within 72hrs without knowing what it feels like to be scammed. So I promised myself that I was going to make this known to as many that are in financial stress to contact them and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan.

Hello all, ive lived vegas all my life, ive never really been anywhere else. So i consider myself an expert on this town. Ive been reading some of these post and kinda dont care for the negative results. Im 31 yrs old and i have 2 kids. This town is a one of a kind town for sure. You can be sure to experience things here that you would never get to anywhere else. This town is amazing, and there is absolutely a million possibilities to do anything you can imagine. All i must say is that if you move here just be willing and optomistic to do and see everything!

Before all the problems, but now it's unbearable here and am begging and wondering is it possible to get help, rent, whatever, while I get a job, was thinking with hotels, casinos, restaurants, clubs, anything, absolutely, could I find some help, or so until, I could work, my ass off to pay for the hospitality, at maybe a hotel, and until I got a place of my own, got on track, continue my training, cuz boxing is my life, was my career in Boston, anyways, get back, and just get out of this shithole country! There are lots of days me and my ma don't even have enough for a loaf of bread to eat, and there are absolutely NO JOBS here! Swear on my life! And things are bad for the whole country one email is not enough to explain. Is there anyone that could please ,please help, I would b extremely grateful, and be willing to do, pay whatever, as long as I could continue with my dream, while I work.

Can a senior husband & wife live on Social Security Disability in Las Vegas if they live in public housing?

I see that HUD has eight 2 bedroom units and two 1 bedroom units in Las Vegas.

There's a remote possibility that we might relocate from Hampton Roads, Virginia.
#Ursula on Aug 01, 2015 :
Hi, wondering what was the average wage for RN's and are there lots of job opportunities ?
#nicole on Jul 07, 2015 :
I love Vegas! I'm originally from New York but live in Dallas which i hate. I will be relocating to Vegas next June. When people think of Vegas all they think about is the strip, but there are some beautiful affordable places like Henderson and Summerlin. Every time i go to Vegas i venture out and explore Nevada. You and your family can live away from the strip but still be close enough when you want to have some fun on the strip.If you have children go to and look up the schools with the best ratings and go check out the area. I think people who grew up in big fast pace cities would love Vegas. It's like hanging out in Manhattan but you live in Queens. You don't have to live in the city
#Kevin on Jul 07, 2015 :
If gas is $2.70 a gallon, i'd like to know where. This city hasn't see gas prices under $3.00 since early 2007. Right now the average is about $3.20-$3.30 a gallon, please update this.
##kandy on Jun 23, 2015 :
First off I live here in Vegas I work at a loan place where I can see all different diversities of people. People in Vegas don't have manners and don't take appreciation for their things. There are other things about Vegas like the strip is a whole other world people who live in Vegas don't really go to the strip. Jobs are all over but it depends on what you are looking for that would determine if it is easy to get one or not. It doesn't matter if you have experiences you have to have licenses and certificates for work. Also everyone no matter what culture or nationality or anything lives here so what's nice is not much judging which is good. Car insurance is an out rage high. Expect your insurance to triple when you move here. It's because people are horrible drivers. Rent I feel is all over the place find a budget you can pay and you will find it! Most the time there isn't like brackets. It is the cheapest city to live in and be around everything. I will be having a child soon and hear that the schools are horrible and to take them to private schools so we will see how that goes. But if you want something different and new try it out. It's not horrible people don't know Vegas take it from a local who will tell you straight up how it is. Don't listen to people who think they know Vegas! You won't be able to under stand Vegas until you truly give it a try.

Are there Lot of jobs in apartment property management? ? Whats the typical pay range for that? Is it hard to get a nevada real estate lic?
#Bob on Dec 03, 2014 :
As a 10+ year Las Vegas resident considering retiring as an expat overseas, I made a handy Numbeo crowd-sourced comparison between selected American and international cities.

Las Vegas was compared to American cities Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.

Las Vegas was also compared to international expat cities in Mexico, Panama, Thailand, Vietnam, China, India, Turkey, and Egypt.

I want to move from Tucson to Las Vegas how is work is it easy to find work? because its hard to find work in Tucson. I have experience in paint and body. My wife has experience in HR in a fast pace hospital.
#JR on Oct 19, 2014 :
Lived in Vegas for eight years. I hated it... but I think the mountains are lovely. There are some *decent* people there. People actually are good drivers (aside from the drunks at night, but this is expected with the Strip).

There's really no reason to make a "life" there with the cancer of gambling around every corner.

I always compared it to Phoenix, and said Phoenix was better, but I now find Phoenix is more aggressive, and full of more assholes, and actually dirtier and more run down. As weird as Vegas is, people are -- by and large -- pretty nice. The trouble is, you're just not going to find an educated crowd there. Despite that, they still try to have cultural events there, they make an effort, maybe more even than Phoenix.
#madaras on Aug 12, 2014 :
I have never been there before but my dream is to move out to Nevada one day just me and my un born son.
#VegasImport on Jun 17, 2014 :
What is really missing is the car insurance and other insurances paid monthly: health, life, auto and residence. Please update the website to account for that. Also let's account for the wide variety of areas in Vegas which cause rents to vary by several hundreds of dollars. People do in fact pay a premium to live west of the strip in gated areas where the rents are usually 25% higher than in North and East LV.
#russell on Apr 05, 2014 :
I'm looking to rent a home in Henderson/Vegas around the 9 op to 1200 market range. Anything but north much would you recommend saving to move from reno nv. My wife and I were think 6k. I've been doing research but not getting a consistent ballpark range
