    This is why I don't ever lend anyone money. Last time I lent money to a friend it took months for me to get it back. It wasn't anywhere near as large an amount as you've lent but still, the principle is the same. Some people just can't be trusted.

    I'd give this "friend" of yours a stern talking to (in person) and fight as hard as you can to get it back, but at the end of the day, you can't really force them to give it back, so you may just have to give up.

    I think you'll need to purchase a few baseball bats and you a few mates need to go round and threaten to practice your baseball skills on him unless he coughs up. Never lend to anyone without a written agreement and holding something of theirs of a reasonable value.

    Scam/rob them. People who need to borrow from friends usually aren't good for the repayments.

    Sounds like a job for Mr. Baseball Bat.
