Dear Friend,Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.I feel so sorry to hear about the mess. However, I am afraid you might have to take some tough decisions as well.To begin with, from what I can make out from your question, you do not have any written agreement regarding the loan that you have made out to him. Also, leaving some financials matters apart, I also see your friend has resorted to some intimidation as well.In this case, I feel you have two options here. To begin with, I would advice you seeking local legal opinion to file a criminal complaint against him for intimidating you. You can also approach small claims court to recover your money.
The following is for your general reference:
