What's your take on this question?

My best friend back East loaned her niece $200.

The niece did not have a checking account, so my friend sent cash through the mail, and the niece received it.

A week and a half ago, the niece said she mailed cash back.

My friend never got it. Is the debt repaid?

If it did I'd tell the bank I sent the balance of my $380,000 to them in cash and I now consider it paid in full.
@TheProphet Try that. Report back.🤗

@Mamapolo2016 I'm sure it will work hon. You know how trusting and compassionate banks are and what an honest face I have.
I do? I mean, I do!
No it's not. Mailing cash is just plain stupid. If it was sent via priority express it's insured to $100, if you can prove the value of what was mailed... which she can't do.

No it isn't.

Tell you friend to complain to her neice if her neice offers to send her another $200 with no complant then she never sent it in the first place.
@TuxedoMask you have a devious mind. I like that in a person

no, its repaid once the person actually has it. if you look at it the other way, if the initial 200 had never been received, would she owe it? you can use a secure way, like money transfer or use a dubious way, like mail, your choice, your responsibility.
Well does she trust her? If she says she did then it is a matter of trust. Mailing cash is risky and should be recorded delivery of some kind and insured.

Did the niece actually send the money? In the end its really down to your friends judgement on the matter
