Well first, you shouldn't owe a credit bureau such as Experian or Equifax; you should owe a lender such as a credit card company or other business. If you fail to pay, the party you owe may win a judgment against you in court requiring you to pay the debt. If the debt remains unpaid, wages can be garnished with a court order.
