Thank you for using JustAnswer!Can you please clarify the background circumstances of your question? I'm trying to understand.
So, you lied to your friend about your personal circumstances.
Your friend felt bad about your personal circumstances and gave you $625?
Now, your friend found out that you lied and is mad?
Do I have it right?
Did you lie to him with the intent that he would give you money?
As a general matter, there is no crime when one "gifts" money to another.
The facts that you've described are not a situation where a person has been scammed money in exchange for a promise to provide a service or a product.
The facts that you describe present ethical and moral issues.
However, the facts that you describe suggest that the person made an unconditional gift to you and, thus, no crime.
