I'd recommend that you consider a few things: 1) Did the 8K get used to buy the electronics? If so, you could keep the electronics. But would you rather have the money or the equipment? You can't have both. 2) Was the 8K a gift or a loan? If it was a gift, you won't be able to collect the money. You can't change a gift into a loan just because you're breaking up with him, etc. If it was a loan, then you should try VERY HARD to get that information into writing with his signature. Granted, he may not be inclined to sign anything. So, see if you can find other people who are aware that it was a loan, not a gift. Get their statements in writing and have them notarized. 3) If it was a loan, you should set up a payment schedule with your boyfriend. Again, he may not agree to this. If he refuses to pay, then you need to do two things: make the payments on the loan yourself (otherwise your credit score will suffer) and sue him for the money. Here's where the documentation will become crucial. He will probably claim in court that the money was a gift. If you want that money back, you'll have to prove that it wasn't. If he's made any payments on the debt or made comments acknowledging that it was a loan, find those records (notarized statements, cancelled checks, receipts you gave him for the payment, etc.). Otherwise, it will be your word against his.
