money

an ex-boyfriend gave me money ($5000) to purchase a car my cousin was selling. We just had a verbal agreement that I would pay him monthly(no set amount). I've paid him every month with checks for various amounts ranging from $30-1000 dollars. We had no written/legal document signed everything was verbal. He is now saying he is going to sue me. What can I do?

Re: money

Not much. Wait to be sued. Pay it off if you can. Without terms of payment, he may have trouble getting a judgment against you, even though you owe him some money.

Re: money

Do you have receipts for the money you already paid him? If not, make sure you get them in the future along with an acknowledgment of payments already received.
