Q: If I transfer money into my boyfriends bank account, and then use that money, is it considered a gift from him in court?
The amount was $300 and I used it the same day I transferred it. I bought myself something with that money and now he is trying to say the item is his since the money (did not originally) came out of his bank account.
A: IMO is your money if you can prove deposit and withdrawal of the amount on the same day, and the item purchased is not his. Even if it was a gift, it is not his because the gift transfer was completed and you had possession of it. Gifts can only be revoked before completion, there is no revoking a completed gift unless there is proof of fraud or legal mistake. He sounds like a real Butt **le, and you should be glad to be rid of him.
