I'm sorry, but I smell a serious con-job here.

What is he doing to help himself?
Does he have a prison job?

The "I have no one to help me..." line is seriously manipulative. The appropriate response, from a psychological standpoint, is:

"Wow, that must be really challenging for you. I have a lot of confidence in you being able to sort that out?"

Tell him you're short on funds the next few months and won't be able to send his usual "stipend"... Curious to see how he behaves and responds.
