Remedy as friend borrows money in others account & not returning

My friend has borrowed 8500/- From me saying that wife condition is not good. He told me to return it back within a week but daily he is sending some excuses which is now not tolerable. Now he has stooped answering calls n msgs and switched off his phone. I have all the messages and transaction details with me but the only doubt is that he has given me his friend account details. So kindly advise me how can I approach for a complain ? Is it legal to have his address from bank through my contacts ? Kindly guide me , I know it’s a small amount but still it’s my hard earned money so I need to respect it and people who took money and think that we can’t do legal complaint should be taught a lesson.

Yes, on the basis of messages and his written acceptance you can issue him a legal notice. You can also file a police complaint, but before initiating any legal action you have to issue him a legal notice. For any further clarification and detailed advice kindly book a consultancy call.

If you have any documentary proof by which it can showed that your friend had borrowed money from you and promised to return but failed. It can be anything like text messages, watsapp or email communication. Just gather all of them. Then make a written police complaint to your local police station with copy marked to commissioner of police. Attach all the documents referred above to your police letter. The police should act on your letter but they will not. So follow up with the commissioner of police office with all correspondences marked to your local police station. If needed you can also file a RTI application with the commissioner office after a lapse of one week of receipt of your letter by the commissioner office. The police letter is also to be marked as cc to your friend's address to let him know that you have filed a police complaint against him. Hopefully you should get your money back. Thanx
