1 Unpaid loan in the UAE on Fri Aug 27, 2010 8:03 pm

I left the UAE in 2004 with an unpaid loan. the amount is quite large at around 200K dirhams or equivalent to PHP 2.5 million. The company I worked with did not remit my end of service pay because my visa was not cancelled, or so they say. This made by unpaid loan baloon to more than PHP 6 million now and a collection agency in the Philippines is running after me. They are employing tactics that may be considered as mild harrassment.

My questions:
•Can I be sued in Philippine courts by the collection agency or by the UAE bank ?
•Can I be extradited to the UAE because of this? Non-payment of debt is considered a criminal offense in the UAE and a person can be jailed

Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

sued for collection, yes.

extradition, i am not aware if there is an extradition treaty between uae and the philippines, but unless you've pissed off not only the bank but the uae government as well, i really doubt this will happen.

to MLADIOS:

We have the same situation, I was terminated last year due to economic recession and I have big outstanding balance. So what did you to do right now? What steps did you to do to negotiate with the CA? Kinuha ba ang mga ari-arian or bahay at lupa. becuase right now I'm afraid. Need your reply. thanks.

Hi daniemay:
I engaged the services of a local lawyer (here in Pinas) and we are talking to the collection agency. There is nothing to be afraid of. The worst that could happen is for you to pay in installments. The payments do not have to be that big.

Question lang din po after nyo bang makipag arrange ng payments sa collection agency tumigil ba sila sa panghaharass?
