  • You lost the money, and probably a friend (If you are really close you should just take the lost, and always make up excuses if she asked to borrow more money).
    Maybe, it is because of the Holidays, you know her better then I do.

    This is a big no no:
    NEVER LEND FAMILY OR FRIENDS MONEY> my motto.
    Unless, you completely know they will give it back, we have a we know that borrow off of everyone, and never pay it back-I don't think they realize it, or care for them I always have an excuse.

  • both...maybe hope that karma will get her and she will pay for it that way (even if you still dont get anything back). but i guess i wouldnt turn it into a war...my sis "borrowed" thousands of dollars from us and never will pay it back, maybe she didnt have any intentions of paying it back i dont know. what i do know is that we had let it go and sometimes my hubby will say "think what we could of done with that money" well what he doesnt see is that it was WAY back then...it would of went to alot of things and still wouldnt of had it today.

    maybe she will realize after you ignore her for so long that she lost a good friend.
    people do make mistakes and "borrow" out money that they shouldnt really be giving out in the first place

  • You're never getting it back. Be civil though. Karma will kick her butt for you.

  • How much does it cost to go to small claims? Look into it and then call her and say you really need the money back and you got the papers for small claims and you are filing on such and such date. Tell her you wish it didnt come to this but you were really just trusting her to pay you back. If you have lost a friend arleady anyway why not get a judgement?

  • Make it a policy only to loan $1 buck and any thing higher than that is NO.

  • Also, if anyone gives anyone a loan have it in writing of that loan and when it's excepted to be paid back. If it isn't then you can take them to small claims court to get that money back. Also, make copies of that check and contract.

    Best policy is NEVER LEND FAMILY OR FRIENDS MONEY.

  • You could take her to court but that doesnt mean you'd get the money anytime soon.

    So, Id either chalk it up to a lesson learned and never lend again OR Id sue her and if I had to, take property to enforce the judgment if she didnt pay up quickly.

  • U could take her to court if you have a written contraCT. All verbal agreemants will not be looked at unless she confesses. It is up to you, & how valueable the friendship is.
