I believe the reference is to the law of shushvinin. But that is not
a matter of hakaras hatov; it's an explicit quid pro quo arrangement.
If you don't pay it back when it falls due, you're cheating the person
of a quantifiable amount of money that you explicitly owe him, so he
can sue you for it.

zev at sero.name intend to commit felony...if a robber meets me in
the street and commands me to surrender my purse,
I have a right to kill him without asking questions
