Subject: I got away with it
Posted on Tue Feb 15, 2011 1:08 am  

I lived in the Uk for 9 years and returned to my country of birth (New Zealand) in 1999 I owed debts totalling $15000.00 pounds. I never heard a thing for about a year and a half and somehow they got hold of my phone number, Because I have a very common name eg: John Smith I just denied ever going to the UK and gave them a totally different date of birth. It was only one company Alliance and Liester Building socity that was the most aggressive, Anyhow in the end they somehow managed to put a default on my credit history in New zealand and this affected me getting a mortgage. But I just phoned up the credit reporting agency and denied it was my debt and to prove it was me - they had no chcoice but to remove it. Its now been 11 years Ive moved to Australia and never been chased again, I wouldnt be game enough to return to the uk in case I was stopped at the airport. I have been told be a bankrupt/insolvency company that to successfully get away with it the new country you are going to - never apply for credit, use a prepay phone and internet and only have a savings account at the bank and do not have any credit cards, Dont sihn on the electroal roll etc, and if by some chance they catch up with you just say your unemployed and have no money, Cause your in a different country they cannot prove otherwise and they will more than likely write it off as there is no point flogging a dead horse, Good luck everyone hope you get away with it, banks are gready

Hi any help would be gratefully received! Over the last 12 years through the ease of getting credit I've got myself into a right mess.....the debt I owe is split over a bank loan and about 6 credit cards so the max I owe anyone is just over £10,000 but totalling around £47,000. Feel completely out of my depth now I have always made at least min payments but am just getting no where and most of my wages go towards this! Anyway to cut a long story short I work within the nhs (so have a professional registration) and have got a job and visa in oz. Leave in a few months....issue is should I try to move money back here to keep paying and struggle ridiculously for next 6/7yrs or start afresh?! Can they catch up with me? Also want to come back to visit family 1/2 times per yr would my passport being swiped at the airport make people look for me?!!!

Yeh go for it, once you arrive here then u wont wanna go back! If u do, then go back after 7 years.

Your credit rating in the UK has no effect on ur oz rating. You just start from scratch.

They only thing I am thinking about is this being held at the airport business. Can they do that? I dont think you can as i was under the understanding that leaving debt behind is NOT illegal. You cannot be arrested for it.
Worst comes to the worst, if u want to go back on holiday, then get a flight to Ireland, train up to Belfast and fly to the UK domesticly.

My friend pays a monthly payment for a loan to the bank but the bank has sold the debt on to another. She is still paying the monthly payment but has no paperwork for 2 or 3 years and does not know if her payment is being transfered to the other country towards her debt

im in new zealand wanting to go to aussie i have a ridiculous aamount of debt and has all gone to collection agency.. and im making no payments on it.. will i be able to leave the country?

Well amjad, this thread is assuming America, where you cannot go to jail for having debts. However, in the UAE you can go to jail for having debts (for a while anyway, they still expect you to pay it back), I would only imagine the horrible things they might do to your family if they found out you left the country.

If I were you, I would never return.
