on my bank transfers it is stated as loan each time
there wasnt one, nothing was in writing and all monies were deposited into his account from mine with the ref as loan, at the time i understood that he had no money and was in dire need of help, i now know this was untrue. im prepared to walk away but he will do this again to someone else and having gone through the pain and realisation that ive been conned i feel it would be wrong to allow him to get away with this.
perhaps there is nothing to be done about the situation and the money will never be recovered ,that is a hardship but to see him get away with this is even more so.
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX better than i had hoped , are you saying that even if i have nothing in writing the fact that my bank statements refrence these payments as loan is enough to try and make a claim ? he has an address in the uk as that was the first loan i made to him which was to pay for a years rent on an apartment in london as he was about to be made homeless, also if i chose to report him to the police for fraud what would they be able to do ?
thank you jo, its been very helpful, i will follow your advice and 1. report him to the police 2. make a claim against him.
