Also there are no agreements in place between the UK and Thailand for these sorts of things. So debts wont be sold on. Who would want to buy the debt? its too much of a risk.
A example would be. say i bought your debt for x amount. then i found you. then you left and went back to the uk? I would be stuck with a worthless debt and be forced to sell it back to the UK. I would be out of pocket. its just not worth the hassle.
Also besides just sending you letters etc there is not much more i could do.
Some of the companies DO know I'm in thailand because my Dad accidently told them. Also a look through the transactions of the last 12 months show that many were in Thailand. So it isnt rocket science to work out I'm here. However this is a large country and maybe they wont find out where I am specifically. what do you think?
If there is no agreement in place between thailand and Uk does that mean they CAN'T sell the debt to this country or just that its unlikely?
If I could get a difinitive answer to this question it would make my life much easier! If teh debts cant be sold to a thai company i can front things out until the baby's a bit older and I can get back to the UKand go bankrupt. If there's any chance of the debt being sold here I will have to confront my dcreitors. I have a very small income here. Can anyone add anything to Tezzas comments?
It all depends how much are the debts that you left behind if we are talking baout a small debt i do not think that they will even bother if we are taling about a large debt then things might be different.
Maybe you can contact debt counselors in Thailand (such as CAB, CCCS in the UK)? Sure, if there are debt collectors looking for people in Thailand it should be kinda protection from them...
My guess is debt can be sold to Thai DCA and even if this debt cannot be enforced via local court system, nothing will stop them from "non judicial" recovery action
