Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with Excellent Service,
1. Are you a legal resident of the United States ?
2. If so, in what State do you reside ?
3. How long will you be outside the United States ?
1. Did you receive copies of the papers the store asked you to sign ?
2. What information did the papers contain that the store asked you to sign ?
3. Did the store say when they would expect payment of the $50 ?
What assurance did the store give you that it would not report you to the police ?
Did JustAnswer's Customer Service get in touch with you ?
If it will not be reported to the police, you will not be arrested and it will not appear on any criminal background check. Therefore, it will not cause you a problem in re-entering the United States. You should pay the penalty of $50 because it is a very small price to pay to have it stay off of your background history.
Please be kind enough to rate "Excellent Service" so that I receive credit
for assisting you,
Bonus and Positive Feedback on survey is very much appreciated,
