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?
