Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

Why did he use your money for this reason?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

he offered me an easy interest (3% per month) but he didn t give me any contract for the investment . i was his customer for already 10 years i belived him , now is more than two years that he takes me around with silly excuses i think is frode .and also he holding all my accounts

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
I see. You did agree to the initial investment then.

I would have suggested reporting this to the police but you do seem to have agreed to the original investment so its not a theft. It might well have been a bad deal but its not a theft.

However, he does seem to have agreed to repay this sum probably because he is concerned about misrepresentation as he appears to have made statements that are untrue. You can sue upon that basis here

www.moneyclaim.gov.uk

Although this does exceed the small claims court arena so costs would be an issue. You can reclaim those costs from him but obviously you would probably rather not pay out upon it at the outset.

You can send him a letter before action, or get a solicitor to do it, given the amounts warning him of your intention to sue if he does pay within 28 days and of the risk of costs.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

Yes,?

Is there something you wanted to know about that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

what can i do to him by low ?


 

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
Well, as I said really, if he refuses to pay you would have to sue.

There is no other way of enforcing this.
