A friend (Government Elected Official) of mine asked me to find money for him to loan/borrow. And I did. He issued checks as a collateral and signed a promissory note. He paid the previous loan/borrowed money, including the interest (10 to 15%) and principal. But on June 23, 2011, he stopped paying. Now, a total of 69 checks issued in different dates and amounts are in DAIF (Drawn Against Insufficient Fund) and Closed Account), amounting to 1.45M Pesos. We had several verbal agreement that he'll pay his debts. But with no avail. I have lost my faith in making a verbal agreement to him, and i'm planning to sue him.
What shall i do if he doesn't personally receive a demand letter?
How much will it cost us to sue him?
What if i don't have sufficient money to pay the court, what will i do?
Would the 69 checks and promissory note be enough as an evidence to convict him?
Is it true that BP 22 is a toothless law?
I'm so stressed that he wont pay us, or it would take a longer period of time for him to pay us. I hope u could enlighten me about this matter.
Your reply is highly appreciated.
