A netizen shared how he gave his friend a loan of $6k, but it’s been a month since and he feels like the guy is gonna “take forever” to return the loan.
He said that he feels scared that he got “psychologically manipulated” into giving that guy a loan, and that he is worried that the guy might come and harass him at his workplace or home over the loan.
He asks if he should make a report to the police regarding the loan, and also to make sure the guy stays away from him.
He added that all he wants is the money that he loaned the guy back, and that he is concerned the guy won’t return the loan.
Here is what he said
Can you make a police report for someone who owes you money?
Just say it’s been a month and something bad is on my mind. Just say I lent a total of over $6000 to someone and that guy is gonna take forever to pay it back.
But I still feel scared because I feel like I got psychologically manipulated by that guy and I just feel paranoid about everything else in my life in general.
And a part of me is worried that he might try to harass me at my workplace or at my house or heck even when I’m out with my friends.
Should I make a police report to ensure that this guy stays away from me regardless of what his intentions are?
All I want is my money back and I’m concerned that he either won’t pay it back or psychologically manipulate me into letting him run away with it.
Editor’s note: You are the one who loaned him the money, why would he come and harass you?
- Be prepared to lose 6k, n lesson learnt.
- Wasnt there a saying that if u lend money, be prepared to not get it back?
Had a not so close friend who wanted to borrow money cause his dad supposedly needed treatment in the northern motherland. Outright turned him down, i rather be the bad guy than get scammed, sorry.
- Can make police report if youd like, unlikely police will do anything since technically no crime has been committed and simply advise you to go Small claims Tribunal
- You can make a police report about anything, whether there will be any follow up action is another story. Since he did not threaten or abuse you, you cannot obtain a PPO or anything that “ensures he stays away from you”.
