  1. You will not go to jail for non-payment of debts, and collection agencies are prohibited from threatening or suggesting that you can go to jail. However, there are negative repercussions from not paying debts -- such as harm to your credit rating, potential garnishments, and continuing stress -- but no jail. You may want to try debt and credit counseling (there are a few free services available) to help get your debts resolved within your means.

    Good luck with things.
