Does foreign debt follow you to other countries?
I am in the process of applying to a new job back in the US (my home country). I previously worked in France for a year and had a French bank account while living there. I forgot to close my account when I left, but the balance was zero. Due to annual fees, my balance has apparently gone in the red and now the bank is trying to send a collection agency after me. I am trying to resolve this with the bank, but I don't want it to affect my chances of employment here in the states. Does anyone know if company background checks reveal foreign debts?
