Legal Question in Personal Injury in Georgia

theft by deception

My situation is ''theft by deception'' from an ex-lover who wants to now say that I am stalking him when he owe me over $3000 dollars. I have no receipts because I never felt the relationship would end as it did.

I trusted him and now his defense is that I am stalkinig him when asking for my money.

Re: theft by deception

Someone not paying a debt is a contract and collection issue, not "theft by deception" (or tort or personal injury) unless he initially stole the money from you. It usually harms a case to try to turn it into accusations of tort or criminal conduct, and can lead to claims against you for doing so. If someone owes you money and will not pay, you can file a complaint in small claims court.
