Can I please ask you to give me some more detailed information regarding this matter so as to allow me to work with you and help resolve your enquiry.
How much money is involved, how dod you come to give him the money?
was the money give as a loan or gifted to him?
I understand you gave him money, but in law, if it was loaned then it is repayable. If it was given / gifted then it is not repayable.
Do you have proof the money was loaned to him and that you expected it to be repaid?
bank statements do not confirm whether the money was a loan or a gift, it simply shows money was given to him.
Do your messages show the money to be a loan and that you want repaying?
understood. Then as you have proof of it being loaned it is repayable.
If he wont repay, then the only way to move forward would be a money claim against him at court.
The first stage to that is to send him a "letter before claim" This sets out your claim against him, what it is for the amount and gives a date to pay you or face court action.
Then if he does not pay, you start your money claim against him.
I have attached a template letter that you could use and a link to the money claim site.
Also if he is becoming aggressive, threatening etc, that can be reported to the police.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
Yes that is correct, send the letter first, then if he does not pay, you start the money claim on line
