Hi, I have been owed $5,000.for one year and the person refuses to return it. What can I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Victoria

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have sent a registered letter requesting payment.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Unfortunately I lent the money to my granddaughter and I am hurt that she has rejected my request. I have a copy of my letter if you wish to read it.

Good Morning

My apology for the delay in responding I was away from my office.

Do you have any evidence that you can rely on that you gave the person the money?

Emails of them asking for it, or you confirming you have given the money to them?

Bank transfers to show you transferred the money into their account?
