Repayment of foreign debt
A friend of mine recently moved from Ireland to the US, and is now living in Massachusetts.
He is a green card holder and is here legally.
Apparently when he left Ireland he owed one of the Irish banks approx. $40,000.00, and was and is unable to repay the loan.
He has now received a letter from an attorney based in Mass. demanding repayment of the loan ammount.
My question is: Can a debt owed to a foreign bank, in a foreign country be recovered through the local court system?
How should he respond to this demand letter?
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
Can one have two different names in two different countries?
If one has dual citizenship, would it be legal under international law to legally change one's name only in one country, yet keep one's birth name in the other one? (i.e. for one and the same person to have two passports of two different countries, each passport with a different name)
Enforceability of Foreign Language Contracts
What happens if someone who speaks only English signs a contract written French that was accompanied by an English translation, but didn't sign the English translation. The English translation states the contract was agreed/entered into, but there is no signature. Is that contract enforceable against the English speaker?
Thanks very much for any suggestions.
I sold a car for a client in the US to a buyer in France, the seller backed out of the deal, but the buyer wired the money into my account, I had some charges go through my account and took some of the buyers money, now I don't have the resources to pay it back. Is there a law against this practice for international trade?

International Law and Internet Crime
I'm currently trying to finish a research paper on the topic of virtual presence, US law and their interaction with foreign lands
I've hit a few obstacles in my research and I figured I'd ask for professional legal clarification.
My paper's topic is internet crimes, child pornography(cp) in particular.
I've come to a bit of confusion regarding the concept of virtual presence and international law. I hope you don't mind but I've paraphrased my points of confusion in questions.
1 If someone from the US views CP from a computer in the US, but the server that hosts the obscenities is in another country (like the UK, where viewing is illegal), will that US citizen be indicted in that country, based on his virtual presence and the fact his internet traffic traversed international boundaries?
2 Given that the US doesn't mention the act of viewing child pornography as illegal, is the US obligated to protect the citizen from foreign prosecution, given that the act of viewing is illegal in said country?
3 Are there any examples of precedence, pertaining to my questions? So I could do a Lexis Nexis search?

How do I ensure my commission in an international deal?
I get inquiries from agents from other countries who want to purchase chemicals manufactured in the United States on behalf of the real buyers in their countries.
I tell them that they will have to every month (legally binding) a certain number of metric tons.
However, usually they want to place a trial order of 1 MT to test quality of material, shipping and handling quality, etc. (which is normal practice in this industry).
My questions are:
� I have formed an S-Corporation but it is meant for my other business (online baby supplies store). Can I do these deals under this corporation or do I have to create a new corporation?
� What document(s) or procedure is there so that I get my commission out of the first trial order in an international deal which is legally binding upon them so they MUST pay my commission?
� And more importantly, how do I ensure that the foreign agent is legally bound to pay my commission after they know the real seller�s information from the first trial order (which they will definitely because of how the international deals work)
