I have this person, he owes me a somewhat large amount of money (by my standard). I have given him almost 6 months to pay me. I am not a dick about it, I just remind him every month or so. He avoids me just so that he doesn't have to pay. What should I do? I could use the money at this point in time, but he doesn't seem willing to pay me? We are both college kids and he was at one time my roomies. I have found myself in better times and I don't really 'need' the money but it would be a great burden off of my back as far as bills. I have given him a very long time to pay it off and I have taken into consideration his state. I have given him since September of 06 to pay but he tries to avoid it. Now... I am not the type of person to demand payment. I am in a decent stance as far as money, and that is why I gave him time to pay. But now, when I could use it, he is avoiding me. It could be that he is broke or it could be he is stubborn. I've asked, but I have no response. What should I do? I could go **** around with his belongings or something, but that's not me. What do I do when brute force is not enough?
