My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that all of this happened.
When he told her to keep the money, the loan
become a gift. A gift is irrevocable. That means that she can go to court, show the text where he told her to keep the money, and the judge should rule in her favor. She CANNOT ignore the lawsuit - that's important, because she'll automatically lose if she doesn't reply at all.
With that said, a person who believes they have a legitimate claim for money against someone is allowed to sue them. It's not illegal for him to talk to people to try to get her address or phone number. However, if the stories he told about her were untrue, she could file a counterclaim
against him for Defamation
of Character. Defamation is designed to protect someone from having their reputation damaged.
