Where are you now?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I'm in Northern Ireland no I'll not be returning to Australia definitely not
Good Morning Liam
Do they know where you are?
If they do they can sue you in Australia and get judgement.
Once they have judgement they can seek to have it registered in Northern Ireland and have the courts there enforce the debt.
If they do not know your whereabouts there is very little they can do.
Good Morning Liam
