    I have an ex-friend who I plan on pursuing legal action against unless he pays me the money that he owes me within the next two week's time. I have been attempting to send him a notice via email and track it so I can make sure that he really picks up the mail and reads it. Basically it's a demand letter which I've read that you need to send before you pursue legal action against someone giving them one last chance to pay up. Anyways, he is obviously ignoring the mails that I've sent him so I'm guessing it's time to send a letter via certified mail.

    I'm afraid though that whenever he sees my name on the tag that the postman gives you that he'll just refuse the mail and won't sign for it trying to put this matter off even longer. Has anyone ever dealt with a matter like this before and has some hints on how I can trick him into signing for the certified mail?

    i send certified letters all the time to people who's cars we repossessed. it doesn't matter if he signs for it or not. in fact it may strengthen your case if he doesn't. you just need sufficient proof that you sent the letter. i costs like $5.45 to send one.

    do you have a signed agreement from him that he will pay? or any other evidence?

    "Trick him into signing" is probably a bad idea.

    We had a verbal agreement which I've been told will stand up in court. Plus, I have a witness who was there when I loaned him the money and witnessed the agreement who is a mutual friend of ours. He said he would gladly go to court and testify for me if I wanted him to.

    Plus I had some property in this guy's building that he has taken and sold to other people after we got into an argument including a car that I have the title for still in hand. I'm pretty certain that's not legal.

    if he doesnt sign, that makes your case stronger, you send the letter wait for like 30 days, ask a lawyer, and if in 30 days he doesn't respond you can sue him, and you have better chances at winning

    you have the title for the car? report it stolen if you want to fuck him.

    you should apply to judge judy or judge joe brown. i know a couple of people who went on there before.

    Yes, I have the title for the car, but I just got this information yesterday. I called a lawyer today and he was supposed to call me back, but never did. I plan on calling him back tomorrow or calling a different one.

    I did call the department of licensing to see if the title had been transferred and it hadn't so I have no idea who he could have sold it to. Plus, this was told to me by someone else so it's all just considered hearsay. I've tried to get in touch with him, but he is ignoring all contact from me.

    If the car is not actually in his possession, what would the cops actually do to him since it's not there and there's no proof that he did anything with it?

    Well if it's not in your possession and you have the title.. and you report it stolen.. they'll find it, and arrest the person driving it. They aren't gonna tell the cops some random guy sold them the car, good chance they'll rat out the guy who ripped you off.

    Good luck!

    If you report your car stolen, they'll likely pick up the person who has that car next time they run into it. That person will then say exactly who they bought it from, giving credibility to your story that would stand up in court. If he hasnt been extremely careful, he can easily get very fucked for grand theft.

    so do you know who has the car? what were the circumstances of it? i have had people get in to disputes over cars and the title holder always wins as far as claims of ownership. if he sold a car that doesn't belong to him that is illegal on many levels.

    The car wasn't running when it was down there. That's why I had it down there. It was a shop where we worked on cars and I had planned on fixing up the car as a car to drag race. It needed some work so there's a chance he could have just junked the car. I'm not sure. I have no idea who has it or where it is.
