How to get someone overseas to pay

Does anyone have advice regarding how to get an overseas buyer to
pay? I have a situation where someone owes me money but is not
paying. In this country i could threaten to report them to the Better
Busineee Bureau, however i do not know how to handle such a situation
overseas…please help!!

Two things come to mind, the first sell the debt to a collections
agency and let them worry about recouping the money, or two contact
a lawyer/solicitor in the debtor’s country of residence to handle the
matter. I’m not a lawyer so there are probably other options etc.

This is a cautionary tale. I know this won’t help in this situation;
but don’t send anything that is not fully paid for.

The bottom line, in all probability, is that you’ve been had.

Contact the United States Embassy (www.usembassy.gov) in that
particular country, or here in the states. They do have facilities
to help you with this, granted its not a free service. Good luck and
Happy Holidays,
