Two days ago while contemplating my student loans and line of credit debt, I realized that I was owed money from several sources. I made a larger than necessary payment to a visa card using my credit union's online banking the other day. I did this because I don't have a client card to replace the one that was lost last year. Anyway, and unfortunately, I made the payment to the old, lost visa card by accident, as the credit union didn't update my payee options automatically (I've since fixed the problem). I sent the credit union a message, and they told me to communicate again as they didn't want to talk through email. My old landlord still owes me most of the rent for almost the entire month of September--I paid early, but then moved out on the 3rd. He gave me 200,000 Won back, but kept the other part for "outstanding bills." However, the bills won't even come close to the balance. He now owes me about 250,000, but mentioned in response to my pestering him that he will transfer 150,000 on Tuesday. He wants to wait until the final bills come in before paying the rest back. I guess I just have to wait. My school also underpaid me by more than 100,000 Won. Finally, there's the government of Canada, which owes me my income tax refund, which I haven't filed.
So here's Nathan on the collections trail:
School: pestered repeatedly--amount paid back yesterday
Landlord: pestered two times--partial amount to be paid back on Tuesday
Credit Union: pestered two times--amount put yesterday on the right Visa card, which now has a $100 surplus
Canada: to be pestered on Tuesday. Filing income tax from another country is complicated.
