Sue just means "ask". When you are Sued in court it just means that the plaintif is asking the court to award them with money, forcing the defendant to make payment. You can still be sued when you go out of the country, but does it really make any difference. How will they collect if the country to which you have moved does not ackinowledge U.S. law in this particular matter and will not enforce the actions of the court? On the other hand, if you return to the country after the suit has been awarded, you may be forced to pay.

Debt collectors are interesting in the aspect of their skill set. They need to be good with people. They need to be able to convince people to pay but they also need to seem human, like they are still people.

There are several approved methods for dealing with debt collectors. One method is to set up a payment schedule with the collections agency. Another is to hang up and change your name and phone number.

There are specific laws in place to protect consumers from harassment from debt collectors. It is illegal for debt collectors to contact you at work if your employer does not allow this. Record all contact by debt collectors just in case you have to take them to court in the future. Also, I advise you to check online for laws in your state that protect you against harassment.

Pennies on the dollar. So when they come after you for the full amount, know that negotiating with them for a lower amount to settle the debt can be lucrative for you. Debt settlement is highly successful and it's the process of negotiating with your debt collectors for a lower, agreed upon, amount to get you out of debt quicker.

Yes, debt collectors can contact their clients at work. It is best to not provide your work number when you are applying for credit.

Yes, the debt still stands. It's how debt collectors stay in busniess. When the debt or account is sold, the debt isn't erased, merely transferred. In essence, the original lender has sold the whole contract. * The debtor makes any payment agreement with the collector not the original creditor.

With the ability to access private information from almost any source. They probably could find your whereabouts. Their ability to take any action is not likely. Only the laws of the country where the debt is incurred apply.

Until the end of time. Each state has separate statute of limitations that govern how long you can be SUED by a debt collector/agency/attorney, however, that doesn't mean the debt isn't valid and still owed.
