You guys are right, except I don't think people who think this way and ask this sort of a question much care about morality, only practicality.

And are they going to try to track you down into who knows what country for that amount of money? I'd be shocked, as it's just not worth it. Odds are 99.99% you'll leave and as long as you stay there, nothing comes of it.

But even the morality of it aside (and yes it's dirtbag behavior) why blow up your credit and burn a bridge you might want to come back across someday? What sense does that make for a thousand dollars? Is it REALLY worth it?

I just don't understand how people think this way, whether the morality of it (it's wrong) or the practicality of it (it's stupid). So just settle matters before you leave and you will never have to worry about it and you can rest easy knowing you did the right thing.

Low. It's 'people' like you that drive up the cost of credit cards. Hell while you are at it, why not lease a Ferrari and then skip town with the car on a boat. Hell they won't know where it's at and won't miss it I'm sure.


Sheesh how old are you really? 10?

So I take it you are totally cool with the Federal government knowing everything you do? I thought you people in Texas didn't care for fascism. Guess I was wrong. You should love this government then - they will in the end fufill your dreams, I have no doubt of that, all the while denying they are doing it. But you'll believe them, and trust that they are only thinking of your safety :)

By the way I have some great swampland in the desert I'd let go really cheap are you interested? How about a bridge?

99 - you and I know that Snowden will never come back here. I was making a sly comment about the OP who probably decided they'll never come back or think they can get away with it, or even permission to commit fraud. Regardless of what his intent is, he/she was pretty bold and foolishly think this forum will give him suggestion.

On to my view of the government: I don't think anybody accepts the fact that our government 'tries' to know everything we do. Guess what, they will try anyway. I have nothing to hide.

Btw, I already own swamplands and yes.. there is a bridge.. you should visit..

According to them, if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear. UNLESS for political purposes they sic the IRS on you. But they'd never do that so you have nothing to fear, don't worry be happy.

Trust in them, they've never lied to you before. They just want to protect you. They care SO deeply about your safety. Touches my heart it really does to know Big Brother cares so deeply about us all.

It is Gamma, but it's scary. The first time I read it, I didn't believe that was possible. Now I think not only is most of it possible today, but I expect the rest of it to be possible in the future, and as a result, that's what I see the future as. I just hope I'm dead before it is fully in place.

Even if you move abroad, you are still expected to repay credit card debt. Of course, you could choose not to pay, but there will be consequences. If you check your credit score before you leave, and then check it again a bit after your move, you may see a decline in points due to the debt you left behind. The longer this debt goes unpaid, the more damage it might do to your credit. Your best bet is to pay off what you can before moving, continuing to send payments even after the move.
