Question value: R 0.00
can I ask for some advice on leaving unsecured debt in south africa (with fnb) after moving to australia? its been handed to debt collectors who will then take it for judgement. It was 5 years ago and was R15,000 at the time, probably a lot more now. Will they write it off? or will they appoint a collector in australia? I hate that I have left debt behind but am not in a position to deal with it in any event.
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
They might write it off if they know that you are no longer in SA, however I can't give you any certainty about that.
They can only appoint somebody in Aus to collect the debt if they get a judgment here in SA first. But that is going to cost them a lot!
My advice, write to FNB and tell them that you have emigrated and no longer living in SA, and that they must write off the debt. Maybe, if you can, offer to pay R5000 in full and final settlement.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
