So originally it was three of us going on this beach trip. We rented a hotel room for two nights and it was going to be $400 total. So I invite a fourth person (my one buddy from high school)..I told him like 10 times how it was going to be $100 per person and he seemed totally cool with it. He was one of my best friends so I just assumed he would be loyal and his word was his bond.
Anyway before we left I asked everyone if they had their 100 dollars. Everyone said yes. Strangely enough I couldn’t get my “friend” to pay up before we left, but I was so naive and excited for the beach so I didn’t really care. We’re about halfway there when my “friend” says “hey, can we stop at a bank so I can withdrawal the money?” …..so we did, and he walks out of the bank with some stupid explanation of how he couldn’t get the money out of his account. I’ve seen his bank account and he has plenty of money, there shouldn’t have been a problem. “Just pay me back after the trip” I say.
So we’ve been back for 3 days, still no word from him. I messaged him and called him several times asking where the money was, and he’s just stopped responding to me. So clearly he never had any intentions of paying me back, he just got a fun vacation at the beach for the price of a friendship all because he is just that cheap. What do I do
