OP,
I'd do #1 and try to pay as much as possible, then once I'm in my country do #2 or #3 depending on your future plans (if you plan to come back some day or not).
I've read of cases of Americans not paying student loans, cc debt, etc when they move overseas for good but in some cases they have to come back and they find themselves in trouble.

Oh and btw, if the OP has been working using an H1B visa he has been a taxpayer.

um yeah. I known a fair number of folks with H1B visas over the years and its be an issue for them to get checking accounts set up and credit applications approved. I HIGHLY doubt the credit card companies would let someone rack up 200K in debt when all they have to do is leave the country in order to not pay it.

Yep, I hope it's a troll. If not, it's just one more stupid deadbeat that's going to dump their bill on the rest of us. Please let's hope it's a troll.
