Default someone to pay me back money they borrowed

What do If someone I borrowed money to won't pay me back?

Hi,
So basically I borrowed a friend 100 about 4 months ago on the agreement she would pay me back the following day. Since then she has constantly given excuse after excuse about having no money, yet has been on at least 3 weekend away (that I know of.) sometimes when I message her and ask her for my money she totally ignores me, (despite the message being read) other times she replies with a promise that I can have my money back next week. I'm really struggling for money ATM and I'm a single parent, whereas she has no dependants. I'm at the end of my tether and I don't know what else I can do. Any advice?
Thanks

Save the texts where she promises to pay and take her to small claims court.

A promise is worth the paper it's written on. I bet she didn't sign anything, did she?

Unless she did, you have no proof that you loaned her anything. It's going to be difficult to prove that money changed hands - I don't think courts take SMS texts as reliable evidence.

Bring the fact that you loaned her money up in places where you will embarrass her. Tell how she hasn't paid it back. Whatever friendship you may have thought you had is toast. She has had ample time to repay you, but I don't think she ever had any intention of paying you back.

You're unlikely to get your 100 back, all you can do at this stage is blacken her name among her friends - so they don't lend her money.

You're going to have to bother her every day so much that she will want to pay you back just to get you off her back, I guess! Try to get it in payments since she obviously isn't ever going to pay you back all at once. Get it $5 at a time if you have to. If she owns something worth that amount, ask her for the object and then sell it for cash. It's going to be very difficult because people like this just use other people and screw them over without caring at all. Good luck.

Small claims court. Do you have anything is writing?

Ask her face to face, point out firmly that you are in dire need of the cash and make it clear you expect repayment NOW.

Susan,

so you lent GBP100 to your friend who needed to borrow money from you, she promised to repay the following day, didnt it occur to you that she was promising repayment the next day without confirming where the funds were coming from to repay you ? Did you ask her how she would pay you back since she needed to borrow from you ?

Now as a single parent, you are in need o fthe money asap. Tell her that in her hour of need you helped her out maybe against your better judgement, you need play on her conscience a bit and hopefuly shes sees that she is causing you and your children extreme hardship and pay up.

If she has been away then she had money and should have repaid you already, tell her flat out that you know she has been away and ask her why she cant honour her own words !
