a video rental place has closed down, and I had a $30 fine outstanding with them. I received a letter to pay back the debt, from a collection agency. the cost of the letter has added to my fine and means i now owe $66. if i dont pay i could possibly have action taken through the courts for me to pay my debt back and any legal costs having to be paid by me.
i was wondering i didnt pay the fine, would they bother chasing me in court and instead write off it as a bad debt.
has anyone had any similar experiences and what happened.
ps: i am going to pay the fine, to avoid any dramas and i beleive it could be a black mark on my credit history if i dont pay, just seeing what people think
