Hello, I am a jobless artist/musician in hard times and have a jilted ex-lover who had borrowed me money ($6000) to pursue my art. I signed a payback note before the economic crash and now he's demanding me to make payments even though I'm jobless and without income. I have not had a job for over 20 years and have no property except for my guitars. He's threatening to sue me from CT- I live in Seattle.I have never made more that $5000 a year and live hand to mouth. He is just being mean because I wouldn't be his kept house boy (he's a priest) and I beg him to understand the horrible financial circumstances of the world (he inherited money and home from an uncle) I've told him that I intend to pay but need time to find a way. He's scorned and mean! What can I do to keep this shark at bay?
