I let my Aunty - October 19th 2015, 10:05 AM

I let my Aunty borrow 130 off me last year to help her out on Christmas. A year later, she is meant to be giving me it tomorrow but I think she is going to rip me off. I think it was a bad idea to let her borrow it because she is either gonna keep it or give it to my mum

You didn't have to loan her money but you did and that was very kind of you. It was your money and $130 is a lot. She asked to borrow it and specifically told you she would pay you back this year at this time so if she does keep it or give it to your mom then I can see how that'd be frustrating.

If she hasn't brought it up to you then I suggest politely asking. If you need it for any particular thing then you can let her know you'd appreciate the money back that you let her borrow because you need it now or in a little while.

Do you and your aunt normally have issues? I hope the money frustration doesn't come between you two and things work out.

Best of luck in your situation!

Me and my Aunty have never had issues but she has changed toward me recently because my mother has been lying to her about me. I text her now and she just ignores me and seems weird that I am meant to be getting the money back tomorrow and my Mum suddenly deactivates her Facebook. I need the money back for Christmas presents and birthday presents.

Would you be able to first call your aunt and bring up the lies your mom has been telling her. You could just let her know that you've noticed how things have changed and say that it's upsetting because you valued your relationship with her, and try to resolve it. That way you can clear the air. That's one option.

That said, I wouldn't let your mom's lies stop you from getting your money back; your aunt shouldn't withhold it because of that, as you gave her the money of your own volition and it was a loan. You could always gently bring it up, as Nala suggested, and if she's resisting, you could use that as a time to sort of say "sorry, I don't understand, you promised to return the money, is there some sort of problem? Can we please talk about it?"

I have already tried speaking to her today but she won't talk to me, she just keeps hanging up on me. She did promise she would give me it back and I really hope I do. Don't think I can live under the same roof as my mum anymore if I don't because I know her lies have caused it. And I also think she is hiding something from me and my dad.
