no they can'nt file a case for blackmailing but they can certainly sue for libel defamation dont do that and it seems from your query that you dont even have any writing qua lending of money try mediation only by involving other aquintances in the matter ./this might help

On seeing your query you are not having any written proof of evidence showing that you lent money to that person. It is dificult to prove that in absense of the written proof. However you may approach an advocate - who is practicing civil side, he can help you. You must build your case on oral evidence and circumstances. Otherside can not file case [blackmailing]. If they file any case, they will be in soup, while cross examing them.

Why you do not approach the police against this father-son duo? You must have a proof emerging from your bank statement from where you withdrew your money to give loan to these crooks?


And if you send such letters, then it might amount to defamation but not blackmailing.

You have not intimated your age. The age of borrower.  The prupose of borrowing. No advise can be given.
