That depends...was there a written contract regarding this loan? Or was it verbal?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It was verbal. The check that was cashed has a description of being a loan

5 years. The statute of limitations to enforce a verbal contract in IL is 5 years. So you can sue for up to 5 years from when the loan contract was first breached
