Providence, RI asked in Small Claims for Rhode Island

Q: friend will not acknowledge any of my attempts to reclaim my possessions which he said he would if i ever got to nervous

This friend of mine showed interest in a brand new Xbox One X. Although I was very reluctant to let him "try" it out, he assured me that if at any point I became uncomfortable, that he'd bring back to me no problem. After sleeping on it I decided I was very unnerved and felt I needed it to be returned. I have already made many attempts to call/text him and tell him I apologize. He's plantely ignored all my attemps. The situation is even worse given the value. Between the Xbox and all the stuff he took with including all the games, We're definitely looking a few THOUSANDS of investment im trying to get back. The games alone I paid $70 each for and there is definitely north a 10. Plus the system itself cost another 500. Im at a loss because he doesn't seem to wanna answer any of my attempts. Im shy to begin with so I could use help on what my next course of action should be. Thanks for taking the time to read my issue.

A: If you can't resolve it amicably, it may be time to take your "friend" to small claims court.
