5K in a week? Aint happening.

Med studies pay maybe 1.5 or 2 grand, but that might take 2 weeks. Throw in every kinda donation you can do (blood, plasma, sperm, bone marrow) and you might add another grand on it. Gives ya 2.5 to 3 grand in around 2 weeks.

But 5? Not legally. Unless you have some assets such as a car or whatnot to take a loan out against.

Well if you have what it takes, how about prostitution? But then again, that might not be in the "legal ideas" department. Damn semantics...

Get the band back together, play some tunes and "bang," five thousand bucks...



Oh wait, that's Hollywood



Hmmmmmm, you could always try daytrading?
How about eBay?

No. I don't. No one does.

Gamble.

Particularly, buy $15K in scratchoff's, you are almost guaranteed to win $5000 that way.

Of course, NET will be -$10K, but, that's not part of the fun!

I would probably sell coke. If you know someone who makes XTC, you can pick up some quick cash that way too.

But if you wanna make $5,000 legally...

Buy (acquire) something and sell it. Artwork comes to mind - draw something, sign it, frame it nice, affix expensive price tag, figure out where idiots go to buy expensive art and sell the thing.

Do you know cars? Got an eye for something collectible that some old geezer is selling as a used car? What else do you know really well? I found a collectible guitar once at a garage sale. It was worth a couple hundred, but you might get lucky.

Sell something really stupid on e-bay. My neighbor kids sold genuine autumn leaves, nicely sealed in a ziplok bag. Actually sold a few. If you got some buzz going, you could do well. Grains of sand?

Scalp tickets.
