    I loaned a friend $2500.00 via bank transfer with a verbal agreement to pay it back in $500.00 lots. After 12 months still no payments and when asked for it no further contact from him. What steps can I take to be repaid. Can I go to his employer?

    I agree with John R.
    And just to be clear - no, you can't "go to his employer".

    Good morning John,
    Thank you for your help and advice as it is just what I needed . I thought there was an agency I could go to but did not know which or where to find the right one. I will follow your advice and will certainly update you of the outcome. You're a gem.

    Hi Tim,
    Thank you for your interest and I will follow the advice given, I worded the reference to "his employer" very badly as I meant to ask if I could approach him regarding if my "friend" was still employed with the Company or not. If he was no longer working there it would probably indicate that he { friend} had done a bunk. Again thank you.
