My Bestie Stole All The Money We Were Collecting For Our Business || Best True Stories Animated

March 6, 2020

Hello, my name is Rachel, and my best friend
since childhood turned out to be a liar and a thief. You see, Alicia and I had always wanted to
start a business together. We had been dreaming about it since middle
school. At one point we started to collect money for
it, so that after school and college we could have enough to start something. Of course we had to really work to get this
money, and we worked during our summers and sometimes after school. By 17 I had several small jobs and all my
money went into a bank account that I had opened with Alicia. She was working a little bit less, but still,
she also tried really hard! Then one day she met Darren and fell in love
immediately. Of course they started dating, and I barely
saw her, and when I did, she would just talk about Darren NON-STOP. I didn’t like Darren that much, but it was
her choice. Soon enough she disappeared altogether from
my life. I was fine with it, I knew that she would
come back, but then something horrible happened… I checked our bank account, and almost ALL
of the money was GONE. I was SHOCKED. I immediately called the bank and asked them
if this was a mistake, but no, the money had really been withdrawn. Nobody had access to our account except Alicia,
so of course I confronted her about it. She acted totally innocent and confused, like
she didn’t understand how this could have happened and was completely unaware of what
happened to the money. I was angry because she was clearly lying
to me, and I had no other choice but to leave her alone because I had no proof. But this didn’t mean that I couldn’t try
to figure it out myself! I started to look through her Facebook and
Instagram to find proof – maybe she had bought something expensive and posted about it, but
there was nothing. So then I decided to check Darren’s pages
aaaaand I found exactly what I was looking for almost immediately. I disliked Darren from the start, but this
was the final straw. It turns out that he had decided to become
a blogger and was making videos regularly. Darren wasn’t charismatic or funny, so his
videos were horrible and each of them only had like 10 views on YouTube. But the funny thing was how high-quality they
were – like he had a professional expensive camera and other video-recording tools. I demanded answers from Alicia at school,
and after few lies she finally told the truth. Darren said he was very sick and needed money
for treatment, and she really wanted to help him so she gave him our money, but it was
all a lie and he spent all the money to buy stuff for filming and promised her that he
would pay her back as soon as he became popular and started making money on YouTube. This was sketchy because, well, she was still
with him, but I really didn’t want to deal with her at this point and decided to concentrate
on Darren. He was pretty open on his social media about
where he would do his next blog, so I easily found out where he was going to film his next
video. I went to the filming location and just watched
for a while how he and his friends were trying to do some weird videos. It looked like they tried to prank people,
but it was soooo awkward. When I couldn’t take the awkwardness anymore,
I went straight up to them and started to take away their camera and everything, without
even saying anything. This was rude, of course, but I was so mad
at him and Alicia that I didn’t care. Darren stopped me and took the equipment back. He didn’t understand what was happening, so
I told him the story. He was shocked! He never lied about any sickness, in fact,
Alicia had been using the money to go out with him the whole time and then she gave
him some of it to buy a camera and other stuff, and yes, he did promise to pay her back eventually. I didn’t know how to react, but I wanted what
belonged to me – either the camera or the money. Darren outright refused and said, “Alicia
warned me that you were crazy!” I’m not gonna lie, this was extremely hurtful
because Alicia and I had been friends since our early childhood. But I still didn’t give up on the idea of
taking back what was mine. So I came up with a genius plan. I had a friend named Jeffrey, and he had this
low voice, so he sounded way older than he was. We decided to call Darren and pretend that
Jeffrey was a lawyer. Jeffrey loved the idea so much that it was
hard for him to not laugh during the call, but he was brilliant at it. He sounded very official and came up with
a lot of made up “lawyer words.” His idea was that if Darren wasn’t going to
either return the money or the equipment, we would take him to court. He even made up some laws that proved our
point. Darren was scared and he promised to give
everything back afterward. I’m not gonna lie, we were laughing for about
half an hour after the call. Jeffrey was VERY convincing. Afterward, Alicia tried to call me like 20
times but I ignored all of her calls because I was tired of her lies and manipulations. I couldn’t hide from her at school though. She cornered and confronted me at school and
accused me of destroying her personal life. Oh come on! We’ve been friends for ages and now she seemed
like a completely different person. I stood my ground because I knew I was right,
so her tantrum didn’t give her results she wanted… But the worst part came when her parents called
mine. Through the screaming from the phone I understood
that I was a blackmailing monster who was preying on their daughter and her money. Uuughhhhh. Basically, she played the victim. I spent hours showing proof to my parents,
but they didn’t care, because this whole story seemed crazy to them. And well, it was. Then, nothing really happened. I forgot about it and cut off all communication
with Alicia. I just had to accept that almost all of my
money was gone and I couldn’t get it back. Imagine my surprise when Alicia called me
after a few months, crying. Darren had broken up with her and I was her
only friend at this point, because during this whole time she was hanging out exclusively
with Darren’s friends. She begged me to forgive her and said that
she would get my money back, and for a moment, I really wanted to believe her, but I just
couldn’t trust her anymore, so I simply hung up on her. It was heartbreaking to completely lose my
friend like that, but it was the right choice… And Darren… soon he stopped doing his blogs
because he was really bad at them and he was kind of a lazy person. In the end I lost all my hard-earned money
and my friend and potential colleague, but at least I found out what kind of person Alicia
was BEFORE we started a business together. Nothing comes easily in life, you have to
work for it, so I just started to save money again and hopefully I’ll have enough to do
something after college! Have your friends ever betrayed you like this? Tell your stories in the comments, and if
