Mum-of-two Sonja Lee has been through a pretty rough time lately.

If it weren't bad enough that there's a global pandemic, the 33-year-old also recently lost her job at a local food chain and then was told she was being evicted from her family home, as she was late paying rent.

To make matters even worse, the parent, from Houston, Texas, was asked to leave the apartment in the most brutal way.

Sonja discovered a 'heartless' note taped to her front door, which featured a smiley face waving emoji, alongside giant lettering reading: "Guess who's moving? YOU!!!"

Underneath this it said: "Pay your outstanding balance, or release your apartment and turn in your keys to the leasing office by 6:00pm today.

"Eviction will be filed promptly Tuesday morning, 8/18/2020."

The devastated mum shared a picture of the letter online, captioning her post: "So y’all think it’s funny to antagonise the person that’s going through financial hardship with putting an emoji stating, ‘Guess who’s moving today?’ There was nothing funny about that."

Her post quickly went viral and a Go Fund Me page was set up to help her family.

The page's goal was to raise $3,380 to cover the overdue rent but a whopping $37,899 has since been donated.

Speaking to People magazine about the eviction letter, Sonja admitted: "I was mad, I ain’t going to lie. I felt like they were antagonising the tenants through the situation and it was heartless, especially during a pandemic.

"A lot of people have lost their jobs. A lot of people aren’t able to get the resources.

"I’m a single mother with two boys. I do the best that I can and am a very hardworking woman."

Karya Property Management, who owns the apartment complex, has since apologised for the notice and said the manager who left it has been disciplined.

In a statement, Swapnil Agarwal, the company's CEO said: "I am apologising personally in case it was insensitive, and if she was really trying to work out a payment program with the property or that she was in communication with the manager, then I accept it‘s truly our fault."

But it seems Sonja has had the last laugh on the matter, as she now has a new home and a new job, thanks to the kindness of strangers.

She added: "It‘s been so overwhelming, and I am so grateful. I have never experienced anything like this.

"I have to pay this forward 10 times fold."
