I Was Scammed By a Friend I Lent Money to Open a Business. – Jen

I have been scammed by a friend to open a business in Dubai. When we found out, he promised to return it along with the charges or interest I get from the bank (like a loan or credit card purchase). It’s been 2-3 years now and he is no longer cooperating.. since he is not paying on time. My interest with the bank kept accumulating and now I have cases from from the banks that I took the money from?

Can I file a case against him? If so what documents do I need from him, he will definitely not give me a cheque? Will I get my money back and all the interest accumulated with it?
