    Help! I lent some money to a friend who won't pay me back

    Help! I lent some money to a friend who won't pay me back 20th Aug 08 at 12:40 PM
    18 months ago, I lent my friend 2,500 to help her out with some money issues at the time, and I've now been asking for the money back for a few months.

    She now no longer speaks to me, ignores my calls and won't answer the door, despite the fact I've been completely reasonable with her. I only managed to just speak to her this morning and she basically just told me I won't be getting the money back!

    I have e-mails and texts talking about the money which was borrowed, if this helps. I gave her the money in cash (not a bank transfer or cheque).

    I'm really worried about what I should do next, if I have any legal options? If there's any way I can get the money back because I really need my money back.

    If any body can offer me any advice at all, it will mean the world to me.

    Many thanks.
