BURNED BY THE RELATIVE I LOANED MONEY

Dear Willie D:

I loaned my cousin $500 more than six months ago. She promised to pay me back when she got paid two weeks from the time I gave her the money, but to this day I have yet to see one red cent. The puzzling thing is that we were so close until this incident happened. While growing up we did everything together: sleepovers, birthday parties, gymnastics, dance, you name it. Once we became adults the pattern continued with girls night out, shopping trips and get-togethers. I am also the godmother to her daughter.

It makes me sick to my stomach that I am in this position fighting with someone who I considered to be a best friend and sister. My cousin knows that I'm merely getting by with living expenses and really didn't have the money to give in the first place.

I have asked her several times for my money back. At first she gave me excuses like, "Oh I'll pay you next week. I had to use the money for car repairs." Then she started being evasive by not returning my calls. The other day I went over to her house to confront her and we got into a big altercation. I still love my cousin but I want my money back. Do you know of a way I can get her to repay me and salvage our friendship?

Burned By a Relative:

You stand a better chance seeing the Pope at a Geto Boys concert doing The Dougie than you stand getting your scratch back.
