Wow I thought I was the only one who had a horrible distaste to Lumberton. They are all right....it isnt safe, it is expensive, horrible is too nice of a word to describe the schools, and it is hell. Robeson county is the poorest county in NC and it is very racially diverse. I have also found a ton of people, most "professionals" to be rude and incompetent.

Dont come here ... but if you do buy my house so we can get out of here!

My brother and his gf were carjacked in Lumberton. My brother was in the gas station and his gf was in the car. Some guy jumped in teh car wiht a gun and tried to kidnap her. She jumped out of the car and she was okay. The police were not nice and did not help them. It has a really high crime rate and it seems like a crappy hellish place.

Stay far away from Robenson County !!! Lumberton & Fairmont is not SAFE !!!!! Beware of the guns, gangs, drugs, corrupt cops who go out of there way to bother and harass new comers!!! This is not a joke !!! My family was treated like dirt !! My car was stolen & the fairmont police when they found it would not finger print it. They told me to call the FBI !! I did !! They got mad !! They should've done there jobs instead of "DOING NOTHING" but having LONG lunches at the only pizza place in town. My husband was attacked by a shot gun man and robbed of money and even his socks--He has a scar on his head from being hit by the shot gun !! My step son was attacked by 3 boys and after the attack he ran to a police car for help bleeding from his face. THIS OFFICER DROVE AWAY !!!! If ya like the sound of police sirens going all night long you'll find it in Fairmont & Lumberton.
THESE PLACES ARE HELL ON EARTH !!! THE DEVIL HIMSELF WEARS A BADGE AND USES HIS OFFICERS TO DO ILLEGAL ACTIVITY AGAISNT THE COMMUNITY !!
STAY FAR FAR AWAY----OR GET BULLET PROOF VETS FOR YOUR FAMILY AND BAR YOUR WINDOWS AND WATCH YOUR BACK EVERY WHERE YOU GO !!!

Hell on Earth is right. I have been here 2 years and am getting out of here ASAP. Unless you like being asked for money every where you go and looking over your shoulder at all times STAY AWAY! When the sun goes down you better be at home locked up. This place has changed me as a person. I am always on the defense, depressed, and homesick. I have wasted 2 years of my life in a place that is resistant to change and ignorant of the problems here.

I cant relocate as i have already accepted their offer. it was a choice between lumberton and chicago southside. which do you think is more scary? I have accepted a job in the hospital to serve the people there. thats why im looking for a place to stay. are you not familiar with hope mills? its in fayetteville. do you think if i work in the hospital and live outside of lumberton it would still be unasafe? is the hospital premises unsafe too?

No where in Lumberton is safe. We moved here for a job. We came from a very safe community. Knowing what I now know my wife and I would have never moved here. Any financial gains you may receive from moving here will never make up for the turmoil you will likely encounter here. I know many people from out of state that can't wait to go home (PA, MI, NY, VT, OH, NH, VA, WA, and DE). Here I never let my wife go anywhere alone. Back home I would think nothing of her going to the grocery store in the evening. Here I would be bitting my finger nails and stressed till she came home. I would say no to the job regardless of what their offer is. No job is worth putting your family in this environment full of drugs and violence. Listen to Yaweh! If you don't believe us just google crime statistics and compare this place to ANYWHERE. The per capita crime rate is higher here than in NYC. Better yet go to www.robesonian.com and check out our papers headlines. When your one of the poorest counties in the country what can you expect? A lazy attitude towards education (mainly by the parents and students, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the teachers) and a lack of family structure are the roots of the problems here and I don't anticipate a turn around anytime soon.
God Bless you if you decide to come here. My wife and I are Christians and we believe God brought us here to show us how well we had it and how not to raise children and it is now time to go home and start a family. If that is not why God brought us here I am lost and desperately need a sign.

Here is a question for you jing? Would you feel comfortable living in a place where it is not unusual for a church to be broken into and the copper pipes, AC units, electrical wire, and even meat be stolen out of the church kitchen? Worst of all if you bring something like that up to the locals. The number one response is that there is crime everywhere. I don't know about you jing but if a crime like that happened back home my people would be talking about it not shrugging their shoulders. You would think the salvage yards would have some restrictions on who brings in copper and a way to track suspicious activity, right? Not here we shrug our shoulders. After all we have to deal with the gangsters and crackheads first. So if they will break into God's house I assure you they won't hesitate when it comes to your car or home. Although I have meet some very nice people here the bad seem to outnumber the good. As I said before, until education is taken seriously (by the parents and students) and fathers step up and set an example for their children there will not be any reversal of the madness in Robeson County. Fayetteville and Hope Mills are better in my opinion but not good enough. We have been all over this state and if I had to stay in this state I would move to the Raleigh, Kannapolis, or out in the blue ridge mountains. I am not up for taking another chance though so I will be going home soon!

thank you very much for your reply. I really appreciate it. Robeson County seems to be a very scary place. I would be looking into Hope Mills or St. Pauls to find a place to stay. At least its outside of Lumberton. I just hope and pray that God would protect me from what you said.Can you be specific with the areas that I need to avoid in Lumberton? Good luck to you and God bless.

You should probably live outside of Robeson county. St Pauls is no treat, Red Springs is terrible, Hope Mills/Fayetteville are spotty. You might want to look into Bladen county which I never have researched, but it may be better. If you do decide to live in robeson county be prepared to be embarrassed when you tell others in this state where you live. Robeson county is well known in the state and not for anything positive.

I guess I have to live through my contract there. St. Pauls seems to have a very low crime rate compared to the rest of Robeson County. Hope Mills seems okay too. I just have to check out the places. Thanks so much for your advice.
