The starting point in law is that you can attempt to obtain a judgment against him by bringing a claim through the simple procedure (this replaced the small claims court in September 2016) for any sum under £5,000. You would obviously need to locate him first. The police will sometimes help in this regard or by contacting his employer. You can serve the process on him at work if you only have this address. The sad reality is that you may simply take the view that the money is lost and any time spent recovering the sum, would be wasted time. He seems to be a scoundrel. Happy to discuss and please rate positive.
