A use to be good friend owes me $600, hes been avoiding me for the past 6 months, how should I go about getting the money? This guy is hard headed and I dont want to start trouble, PM me if you got an idea.
well he tells everyone he aint paying me back, so tomorrow im gonna sit outside his house and have a chat with him, nothing violent because i know he will head straight for the new car i got, Evo XIII, makes u hate me too huh?
This is why you don't get money involved in a friendship. But it doesn't sound like he was much of a friend if you ask me. Just have a friendly talk with him stating the obvious and tell him that if he doesn't comply that you'll take him to people’s court. Don't threaten him with that though.
Tell him if he doesnt give you the money back soon, or start making payments(keep strict records of everything, even attempts in trying to get money)if he doesnt do that then talk to the police. and build a case against him(with the strict records you have kept)
I just have went through something like this, and the guy is going to end up in jail for fraud and theft 1...dont beat around the bush when it comes to money, friend or not, if you want what is yours you cant involve your emotions.
Remember the scene in A Bronx Tale where C is chasing the guy who owes him money? Sonny pulls him aside and basically tells him it's pointless to chase the guy, for $20 the guy will never bother him again. Think about it.
Julie is right, have fun collecting on a civil judgement.
I personally would make it in his best interest to pay you back. (wink)
