Basically he claimed have no spending money and asked me to look after his needs till he is able to pay me back in full. In good faith I paid for his personal bills, hotel costs, clothing, repair bills, food and many other items - don't ask why.
All this was coming to a large sum of almost £5K when I alerted him to start paying me back. He has ever since ignored my calls and text messages. Unfortunately, the only prove I have are my bank statements. He was lying about being broke because I had seen that he has more than 50K cash in his bank account already and is also working, so it is not like he cant pay me back.
I am sure he is been doing this to other people as well, but I don't know if I have a strong case against him and on what grounds can I sue him? These were NOT gifts to him.
I have perhaps text messages asking for him to pay me back. Unfortunately, I don't have anything other than bank statements to prove that I have been paying his bills which are under his name etc.
How can I prove him wrong that these were not gifts which he is aware of but if I take him to court then how can I win this case still?
