Have you explored option of buying provided that you have full time employment and it says Tillsvidare Anst?llning on your employment offer letter. Then you can talk to banks and see if you can get a loan agreement to buy.

By any chance do you have spouse who is working too...That can help securing loan for new place too.

In long term it is damn smart decision.

Being immigrant getting rented apartment is damn hard unless your name is Anders Andersson.

Have you considered changing your name to above for quicker results ?? smile.gif Just joking.

Dearest
I know really that this message will come to you as a surprise but please permit me to introduce myself to you because i am seriously in need of your assistance.My name is Monifa Azeem.
I have a serious problem which is an injury that lingers in my soul for almost ten months now and I want somebody who is reliable and honest who will advise or give me help and suggestion on how to overcome the crisis. my mother is not longer alive here in Abidjan as I am writing you and recently My Beloved Dad join his ancestors through the hand evil politicians who accused my father of supporting the past president Laurent Gbagbo who is now in prison in Holland and since then the rebels and supporters of the present government are seeking a way to eliminate my life after assassinating my father and by the grace of God I exkept from the hand of the rebels and ran to hide in Capital city of our country Abidjan IVORY COAST for the security of my life.

How I wish I will see you now in my country and we talk to each other at present. My father before his death was a chairman of cocoa dealers here in Bouake Ivory Coast that was when I am still a student at the federal college of Abidjan. but I stop school after the death of my father and, as am writing you now, all my hope and dream of future was shattered and spread to the sky as I don't know what to do,

My father left a big amount of money with the bank USD 4.5MILLION DOLLARS, and I don't know about this, it was on the 10th of October last year that our family lawyer kindly hand over to me the documents covering the deposit and the WILL my father wrote and the instruction on how I will utilize the money, Meanwhile I don't know what actually what to do with this money because of shattered brain and life line, that is why I contacted you so that you can advise me and also help or give me suggestion how I will handle the inheritance and also help me to transfer this fund to your account over in your country because right here i am scared of my life due to the threat by the supporters of the president.

My dear after the conclusion of the transfer of the money I will come over to your country to have peace and security and also to continue my education while you will search for a good business to invest the money,

Please it is a long story that if I start to narrate them now, you will start shedding tears over there, but I will give you more details in my next mail but kindly bear in mind that I need you to help me out from this my bad condition and help transfer this money to your account and assist me come over there for security of my life and the fund and start a new life with you.

For this there is simple solution:
In Gbg at least, if you are taking Airport bus that is flyggbussarna, then when you board the bus at airport and buy ticket, tell the bus driver that you wanna use public transport when you arrive in Gbg central station. S/He will give you a ticket which is valid for 90 Mins. You can use that one to go home using public transport.

08ers and Malmös folks need to check with resp SL or skånetrafiken...

I use it all the time when I am taking airport bus to city center in our lovely Da Borg.

http://www.vasttrafik.se/#!/startsidei...2flygbuss%22%5D
Resa vidare i Göteborg:
Den som köper flygbussbiljett ombord på Flygbussarna från Landvetter eller Göteborg City Airport kan även resa vidare kostnadsfritt med Västtrafiks bussar, spårvagnar, tåg och båtar i Göteborgs kommun, genom att meddela föraren på Flygbussen som ger resenären biljetten "Välkommen till Göteborg". Biljetten gäller i 90 minuter från det att resenären köper biljetten av flygbussens förare.

Ticekting systems the Gbg or some other parts is very serious matter of discussion I think...

In case of OP I wonder why he did not bother to get information about how ticekting works in new city you are visting specially when you got children with you.

Now John that is not a qualifying criteria to join TL. You must nick some stuff from someone before you get a wild card entry over here.

Please see to it that you match the criteria. Thank you for your consideration.

Open a browser window... it looks like this window in which you are reading these posts.

Then on top bar type is www.google.com.

Then type in trollh... whatever you are looking for... and voila.. there you get more and more information.

If you are advanced user of internet this might work as well:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trollh%C3%A4ttan
http://www.vastsverige.com/en/Visit-Trollhattan-Vanersborg/

More information follows.

Seems like the battery is about to die. Change it else keep it plugged to power source if you dont wanna spend too much money. Unless it the comp is worth keeping, I will try to get a new one.

But what happen in my case that im just working half time and i earbaround 9.000 kr? Because i cant have full time job just because im studying SAS grund

May be try to see if you can get a full time job where you are currently employed. Once that is done, change the SAS Grund course to Kvälls Tid ( That is 2 times a week 530 to 7:30) if such option is available in your kommun.

Once on full time job you can apply for new work permit or as Puffin says, if you could hold on for 2 years you might end up with PUT too.

Good luck.

I think on your permit it is not allowed.

Also , I think you need to register for few more courses. If I remember correctly then you need to have at least 50% course load to qualify as a student.

As usual wait patiently till Puffin sees this and you will know right answers.

Another way to get a rental apartment quickly is to change your name to Amelia Andersson/Sevnsson/Eriksson or likewise. That shall work like a charm. smile.gif

Was reading TL in student days since 2004 but joined it finally after sorting out masters degree, job and roof over head. TLers have always been helpful folks and got great insights on many things.

Also met few very intresting and nice people here and have met them in person too.

Now where is the Team Goteborg... ??? Any meetup plans???

Well when I went to swedish consulate in chennai, India to apply for Student Visa , temp outside was 42 degrees and they offered me chilled water to drink and then a hot cup of madras coffee(Kopi). The whole document submission/interview was done in swift 35 minutes and I was out.

No one in their right mind will do what you plan to do. Punkt. Also if you also believe that your friend will let you walk in every 3 months and demand money..the basis of which is unknown is gonna work, then I have no words to say anything more on your naive nature..

With 50K amount, may be open an trading account with avanza.se or nordnet.se or alike and buy shares or index funds( all these things needs knowledge about how these things works)

Another thing you can think of doing is: Buy a small plot or land(now I am unsure if you can buy anything at all with this kind of money).. may be buy a gardening plot, spend some time and money in gardening.. and sell it few years later... Just idea.. details you need to work out.

Forget Nordea, they will just waste your time.

Try this one:
https://www.nordnet.se/toppenlanet/start.html

They are internet bank and not some fly by night operations. Internet banks does not have overheads like main street banks and hence they offer you better rates. They are fast in processing the loans too..

Check pricerunner.se and there is some website where you can apply for loan and all the interested loan providing institutions can give you and you can choose from.

You do not need to inform them what the money is for. But if asked, answer honestly.
Being evasive does not help your cause with any FIs in any part of the world.

From now on, LET your SWEDE do the talking/communicating with MV in SWEDISH is what I can suggest. smile.gif Sometime that can help.

Sometimes it takes time and it is in unfair and they know that.

Now it is summer time, so MV is more slower than before. Patience... easy for me to say but hard for you to go through.

My sympathies.

Couple of thing you can do:
Find a dark corner in house, take deep breaths and lie down for the while until this phase gets over...

Start heavy drinking also comes to mind but may not be appropriate approach.

Don't kick my rear end for posting..
