They'll have to take the judgment to a French court, but yes they can collect. However, they will only do it if the amount outstanding is worth it.

If they do it, and obtain a French court order, they will be able to collect the initial debt, plus interest and legal fees in France. And of course garnish wages and/or seize property if any.

Sorry but being in court today, I cannot offer you the Live Phone Call service.

16K€ would definitely be enough but it is more a matter of what the creditor's policy is.
