What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Ohio
I am disabled. A person who I thought was my friend has deceived, scammed, borrowed from me again and again until he owes me $12,500.00. He apparently used much of it for drugs instead of getting his life together and getting a job. He accepts responsibility for doing this and still swears up and down that he will pay me back. Would suing him be the right way to go to be able to take further actions to collect this debt?
