Hi. In July I opened a company with a so called friend with 50% shares each. We bought a 40K franchise that comes with a car. It is a hired car services company. We agreed he becomes the sole director and I become a shareholder, as I have another business and did not want to be liable to something I can't control. I lent the company 21K. A month ago, I got an email from him stating that he is kicking me out and that I have 2 options. Either I get 16k back and leave or only get 10% of the profit. He then texted me saying that he will sell the franchise and will pay me all the money back. I have all these conversations in emails and in text msgs. He changed all passwords so that I won't see any data or get informed of anything. I know he sold the car and got paid for it for sure. Today, I texted him asking about the money I should have received a while ago and he replied saying that the business did not get sold. I know he sold the car and got paid for it and I know the business is running. I feel lost and I want to know my legal rights under commercial law as well as how to get my money back.
