    Hi, my friend in my class asked to borrow some money and said he would pay me back in a couple days, he was a good friend so I lent him £200. It has now been almost two weeks and still hasn't paid me back. Whenever I ask him he says he will tomorrow, and never does? School is finishing soon and we are going to different unis so I really need to get this back before school finishes, as he probably will never pay me back if thats the case

    Any advice?

    If he doesn't pay you back, print off an N1 form and fill it in. Don't send it, write a letter to your friend saying that you'll try negotiation, but if you can't agree on a time to pay back by or a way to do it (such as installments), then file that form.

    Thanks I will do that if he hasn't paid me back by the time exams end!

    What are the police going to do? He hasn't committed a criminal offence that they will care about - it's not exactly theft. What I suggested is an alternative that allows you to do something about it. Negotiation is a chance to peacefully resolve the issue, and if that doesn't work, you can take it to a civil court.

    first thing first - what proof do you have that you lent the money? Was someone else there as a witness? If not they can just deny it happened. Send a text asking for it back, if he respods you may have an acknowledgment of the debt.

    Once you can prove there is a debt I'd get parents involved. If that doesnt work you can talk legal action but you'd probably be looking at £1 a week repayment.
