I left Hong Kong a few months ago with a debt of around 8000hkd for NowTv after some scandalous dealings arose on their part, when I tried to cancel initially, they tried charging me 3000hkd for the satellite box for example, a fee which I found unacceptable given it wasn't in the contract. When I left I didn't have any immediate plan to return so ill advisedly spurned their advances. I'm pretty sure the debt was transferred to a collection agency and I was contacted as such.
I have since been offered another job in the area and am keen to take it. However I would like to know if these discrepancies would show up on my criminal record or would in anyway show up during visa processing. I would be annoyed at having to back down but feel it's necessary given my desire to move back to the area. I need to know if it would even be possible to get work in Hong Kong in the first place in order for me to pay it back.
Many thanks in advance for your time.
