Sue... small claims court. Sue him for they money he owes you .
Chalk it up to a lesson learned and be done with it.
Over the past half year I lent the equivalent of $2000 to a friend and he repaid about half of it. He used to be very friendly and invite me out all te time but in the past 2-3 months he has been ignoring me completely, he doesn't picks up my calls, he never opens the door, etc. I called him and his girlfriend over 30 times today but obviously they never picked up. About a week ago I posted about the story on Facebook and he deleted his account, and his girlfriend blocked me. I deleted the message after a few hours but she then said I don't deserve to get everything back because I ruined his reputation. I am leaving Hong Kong tomorrow and will only be back for a few days in February, after which I will only be back in September. By that time he will already have graduated and won't live in the same flat. I was thinking of throwing a rock at his car (that I helped pay for) or to make a payment reversal on the $500 car insurance I paid for him with my credit card but I'm pretty sure both of these will get me in much more trouble than him. What can I do at that point? I haven't seen him or talked to him since I made that Facebook post the few calls that did went through were his girlfriend picking up his phone and talking to me but now they both stopped all kind of communications.
Take it as an expensive lesson. NEVER lend money without a legal contract and this includes to friends, family etc. Highly doubtfull you will see the rest of it back even if you take him to court.
