Can a debt from Europe follow you to the U.S? I was just contacted by a collections agency here int he U.S. regading unpaid debt in Europe. Can they report this to the Credit Beureo and threfore effect my FICO score? What are the rules about international debt? I have excellent credit here inthe U.S. and this old European debt is 18 years old - a gap loan I took while waiting for student loans to kick in.
Thanks - H
