A gift is a gift. He would have to prove it was not a gift. My concern is that he will call the police and claim that you stole his credit card number.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been doing criminal defense work for over 17 years. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012 and 2013. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell has given me its highest rating - AV Preeminent - in the areas of Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Litigation. According to Martindale-Hubbell”AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Fewer than 8% of attorneys achieve an AV Preeminent rating. I also have the highest ranking – “superb” – on Avvo. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
While I agree with the comment of Attorney Rothstein regarding a gift being a gift, I also share his concern that these purchases may be portrayed in a way which is inconsistent with them being a gift. The longer this arrangement was in place, the less likely he will be able to portray it as something else as he would have been clearly aware of it and did nothing about it until now.
