take them to small claims or not?
So heres the deal.
In june i totalled my civic. Insurance offered me 4500$ for the car, and 4000$ if i kept it. It was a nice daily driver with a gsr swap, full suspension, etc. Now mind you, i could sell ghe totalled car for 1500-2000$ cuz of the motor and tranny, etc.
Well this kid who i know would not leave me alone about buying it from me. His fiance was pregnant, and they needed a motor for their civic to sell it. So he offered me 1000$ on top of what insurance was giving me. He only had 500$ at the time. And he offered to give me 50% of the parts he sold off the car.
So me being the nice guy agreed. He gave me 500$ and then 100$ a week later. After that? He went on vacation to arkansas (meanwhile owing me $$). I dont let it bother me.
I ask him every few weeks for cash, and i get a sob story.
Meanwhile hes buying cars and trading cars. Still no money.
So last week he calls me and asks if i want to work for him and his uncle, and then bragged about making 4500$ last month doing the work. I was out eating, so i didnt say anything.
I call him three times since then, no response. Finally i write him on facebook, he tells me to basically **** off.
I got heated, called the police cuz otherwise i was gonns go do something regretful at his house.
Well reason i called the cops, i still have the title, and he disposed of the car and everything else without my permission.
Now, cops said they cant do anything because i let him take the car.
So question is, i could take him to court and possibly get as much as 1000$, would you do it? Not for the money, but out of principle. Have pics and messages, so it would be a open and shut case
This is the last time i help someone out. This kid is lucky i dont take it into my own hands.
