I am an American who was working in the uae for six months and in that time I accrued credit card debt in the approximate amount of $10,000USD. This is probably an overestimate, but definetly not an underestimate. I could not stand the working conditions in the UAE so I fled the country leaving behind my credit card debt.
My mother has been contacted by the bank a few times and then once by a UAE collection agency. Her response is always the same answer: “I don’t know where she is.” I have also received emails(although they are few and far between) regarding the matter. I simply do not respond to them. The latest one states that they will hand my case over to Interpol.
Will they hand over my case to Interpol for that insignificant amount(insignificant for an oil-rich country)? What will/can be done? Should I be worried? Should I avoid flying into any GCC state in the future?
