Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.

Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only. What specific questions did you have? I have an idea about your situation, but I don’t want to make any assumptions.

How should i proceed? He is threating criminal charges and claiming that through him gifting me coffee and such that i owe him money because i was talking to my former partners

So, if I understand you correctly, this person is claiming because they gave you gifts that you owe them money. And they're basing this on the fact that you were talking to former lovers. Is that correct?

Correct

You don't owe this individual anything. What they are doing is a form of harassment. You may want to consider going to your local county courthouse and filing a restraining order. You may want to consider just writing a cease and desist letter to that individual advising that a court may issue a restraining order and if they violate it, they could end up in jail or with a fine.. Lawyers use letters like these often to enforce their client’s rights. Here’s a website that has a good template (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation.

I was paying him 200 a month as well
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
This is harassment?

Ok, so did you borrow money from him or something? I'm a little confused about what happened.

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No i did not, he is trying to say because in his opinion i played his heart now i owe him money

Understood. If that is the case, then yes, this is harassment. if you click here, you can learn about the restraining order process for your state. What other question did you have for me?

Thank you for your advice

The pleasure is all mine! There’s just a few other things I’d like you to know before we wrap up this conversation:

  1. Could you look on your screen and provide me a star rating? 5-stars are always appreciated.

  2. For your benefit, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.

  3. Don’t forget, if you haven’t already, you can always sign up for a membership with Just Answer and start asking more questions on the cheap.

  4. Don’t forget to tell your friends about justanswer.com!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
