I was student studying outside India, In March-2017, one of my friend/colleague who was also studying, made false lamenting excuse and took around 1100 euros which corresponds to Rs 88000 in today's conversion rate. He promised to return back in two months. But soon after going back to India he disappeared, switched off his mobile phone, change his number and email account. I tried making several contacts but of no response. Somehow, I managed to contact his siblings in facebook but they blocked me. I tried talking to his parents but they denied that his son has taken money and now not responding to my calls.
I gave him a loan as cash on two installments (500 euro each). I have proof of bank withdrawal. I have audio and email confirmations of money given and acknowledging about the same. But he only keeps telling lies and making vague promises that he will give in next month etc. It now almost passed more than 2 years.
I am helpless and badly want to get my hard-earned money back. I belong to a middle class family and saved money to support my studies abroad and family expenses. I feel cheated and seek legal help if any possible to recover the amount. Please help me if any lawyers can provide legal help/suggestions on this.
