The first person was right who ever you owe money to can file criminal charges against you but they won't chase you out of the country. However, don't return to the states, they will arrest you soon as you go through customs. If you have debt and refuse to pay it the person you owe the money can file a criminal complaint against you and if your caught you'll goto jail.
