My Ex Wants Me to Pay Her For a Loan I Knew Nothing About. What Should I Do?

‘I lived with a girl for about 2 1/2 years and was laid off for some months and broke my leg and was out of work for about a year. When I was working, my checks were deposited into her bank account. A little over a year ago she threw me out and now wants me to give her money for a loan she says she took out back then. I didn’t hear about any loan until now. What should I do with her?’

There really aren’t enough facts here to fully answer your question, but unless she has a writing signed by you saying that you are somehow responsible for giving her money, you really shouldn’t have to do anything with her. She can try to sue you, but without any proof (particularly in writing) she won’t get far.
