In either case did the relative indicate it was meant as a gift?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, besides ~600 of it. The rest was a gift. Then tough part is the family member waffled, and statement of gift were stated verbally via phone.

Thank you for the additional information.If it was given as a gift at the time then that is how it stays. It does not transform to a loan just because the donor changes their mind down the road.You would have no liability.
