The fellow was said to have lamented terribly that the woman for whom he borrowed the money is no longer with him.
Sharing the story on Twitter, a tebt collector named @General_Oluchi wrotee in a tweet:
"During my days as a debt collector, I had access to some debtors' expenses. For example, if a bank hires the company I worked for to collect a debt for them, they will give us a statement to see what the debtor spent the money on.
"Surprisingly, some paid bills with the money, some bought a car, some took a trip, did some shopping etc., but the most ridiculous item on that list to me was buying an engagement ring with a loan.
"To me, this is something that could wait. One can get married without an engagement ring and it wouldn’t matter.
"But seeing a debt of $5,000 for a ring was unreasonable. When I called one of the debtors to discuss a payment plan, he grumbled and sighed saying, “me and the woman I bought the ring for, are no longer together yet I still gotta pay this loan?”
