No. The District Attorney is the government official charged with enforcing laws prohibiting criminal actions. A lender may not use the District Attorney's help in recovering money it lent to someone. For that, the lender goes to civil court using its own lawyers. And don't let those lenders scare you by threatening to use the DA.
