There is a famous saying that you should only lend the amount of money that you can afford to lose. When you let your friends or family members loan money from you, you should have an assumption that they will pay you back promptly to preserve your relationship.
Sometimes, this is not always the case. It can also be awkward and sometimes, embarrassing, to repeatedly ask those people when you can expect to get your money.
But what if you really need the it, how should you ask the person who owes you money? Are you going to ask politely, let them know about your current situation or by asking angrily so that the other person will be forced pay?
Unfortunately, if the other person really doesn’t have the intention to pay you back, they will do different ways so you will not get your money. They would either escape without any traces or for this case, scare and hurt you physically.
A Facebook user named Bella Tanaya shares what the person who owes her money did after she tried asking for her money back.
In a Facebook post, Bella shares that when she went to the person’s house, she was greeted with an itak or large knife. The other person also used it on her, resulting in a small wound on her chin and chest areas.
Hindi ko inaasahang may mga tao palang kapag siningil mo ng pagkakautang ay hahabulin ka ng itak at yan ang inabot ko.
Kung wala kang pambayad pwede ka nmang makiusap ng maayos.
Hindi yung hindi kana nga magbabayad ikaw pa ang matapang.
After reading her story, netizens cannot help but feel angry. Many users urged Bella to file a blotter and a case against the woman. Some also shared their own traumatic experiences when dealing with people who borrowed money from them.
