My son - 22 - had an accute manic phase which landed him in the hospital for 10 days in February. During this phase he bought a car from a friend, a fellow student. The friend asked for $5000 for the car. My son gave him $8000. We learned about this a month later and since my son is now hospitalized for the second time (he did not keep taking Lithium and xyprexa and had another manic episode) we have been trying to sell the car. Now we discovered that the car is worth $2,000-3,000. My son asked for $3,000 back from his "friend" and was told no. I then wrote a note to the seller suggesting he give us back $3,000 as he would surely not want to take advantage of a lapse of judgment by his friend. Or that he can have the car back and I will give him $1000 (the car hasn't been driven at all, since my son was unable to register it). No response for 10 days. What else can I do? My son also spent about $2,000 in one month, so his savings are 0 and he owes us $7000... Any and all advice most appreciated. Thank you.
