A kitchen fitter told me he would look after me and give me a good price for my kitchen like he gave his friends who referred him. Once he completed the job he wanted $15k which is double what we anticipated. I have sent him several messages every Ramadan so he picks up his $ and it has been two years. He has a habit and is well known for not collecting $ owed to him until a few years later. I don’t like owing people $ especially as my financial situation is never secure but how do I get rid of debt to someone like this? Should I offer to pay 10k of his bills or employees bills or donate the $?

Put the money aside till a time he will come and collect it. Consider this money out if your jurisdiction as it’s no longer yours. You can’t dispose of this money in any way without his prior consent
