I'm just looking for some advice/opinions not a lecture please!
I moved to the US about a year ago (yes legally :) ) I had been paying off a personal loan which I had in another country. Because it's taken a year now waiting for immigration to let me work I can no longer keep paying the loan back. It seems my bank has now passed on the loan to a debt collection agency here in the US. Because I have no job, no ssn# no assets, credit or phone in my name here what are their chances of finding me and can they take me to court for a debt written in another country?
I really intened to keep paying, I didn't know it was going to take so long to be able to start working.
I'd be grateful for any help at this point, thank you in advance!
