In general, collection agencies annoy you with repeated phone calls, and sometimes find a collection attorney to sue you on a contingent-fee basis. To my knowledge they seldom bother with debtors who are no longer in the U.S.

With an active warrant for your arrest, you can be arrested at any time, and in any place. That is what you should expect. What you need to do now is hire an attorney in Iowa to address that active warrant. Without doing that, you will be constantly looking over your shoulder.
