Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
What was the agreement as far as when the money was to be repaid?
She first told me she would start paying me back within the first 2 weeks of the load but then I got a text that she had a $600 utility bill and could not send me any money... I have all the text messages regarding the load... she then said she would send me what she could today... I text her and ask her if it would be a money gram or money order which I have not gotten a response too which I sent her this morning... I also left her a voice mail asking her to call me and nothing yet from her,
What would be the cost of filing a small claims court judgement against her and would she have to pay for that cost. I had taken out of my IRA to give her the loan and in the text I told her she would be liable to pay the 20% tax that I had to pay along with the $115 fee that I had to pay for sending the money gram... is that going to be a problem getting back?
She lives in Canton, Il and I live in Racine, WI... where to I have to file the judgement?
My husband is in bad health and would rather not have him travel if possible but I will do what needs to be done... thank you for all your help... I guess I'll have to do what I have to do... is a month long enough to wait to proceed with this law suit... my sister is 16 years younger then me and I am on a fixed income.
Thanks for all the information... I really appreciate it... have a good week-end.
