    Default Someone owes me money , need advice please .

    A few month back I went to see a car ( a friend of a friend )
    I left him hundred quid deposit , but hpi checked the car after , and there was prior finance outstanding on the car (said he didn't know)
    Anyway the guy was on his a55 at the time and spent the hundred quid on shopping , so me being a reasonable person agreed to let him pay me back 20 a week , upto now it's been nothing but excuses etc , so should of been getting something this week.
    Anyway I've text and rang twice with no reply and I'm getting really annoyed now , I know it's only hundred quid but it's the principle , I don't wanna end up grappling with the guy , but I need to get it sorted.
    Any ideas chaps ??

    I had a similar experience, gave a mate £100 deposit for a car and he wrote it off the next day!!

    He wouldn't cough up either, I threatened him with small claims court and he soon payed up!!

    I know exactly how you feel, like you say it's the principle!

    Ye , I know mate .
    The problem is there was no receipt etc , it was a goodwill gesture leaving the cash , and I don't know the guy from adam , my mate doesn't know him that well either.
    I've probably been to soft with him , and he may think he can get away with it ... WRONG .
    There must be an easy way around this without becoming confrontational , he is a big lad , and so am I ... so someone could get hurt ... I just want the damn cash back.

    think you know who your friends are, until they carp on you.
    it may be that he really hasn't got it right now, and doesn't have the guts to say it. times are tough. try to have a civil discussion, and maybe you'll get a straight answer that he intends to give it back eventually.
    might be all you need to hear, who knows.

    edit: ah, just noticed that it's a friend of a friend.
    oh dear. not easy.

    in any case, not a good bloke you've dealt with there by the sound of it.

    Its a tough one to be honest!!

    I am not sure of a way for it to be settled "nicely". Do you know anyone who knows this guy properly??

    Maybe do a bit of digging and get a bit of background info on him, see if he is that type of guy, the type that will do anything to make a few quid!!

    Also if there is no other way to sort it other than it coming to blows, I would think if getting hurt is really worth £100 (I know it's not the value but rather the priciple). Also if you don't really know him it could just keep spiraling out of control.

    I think the best bet in this situation would be to pressure him a bit harder for it, if it gets nasty, walk away!! I know you would loose out but its just not worth getting hurt for IMO. HTH
