Suppose you don't know that you owe 20 Euro to the Bulgarian state, say from some unpaid tax, penal ordinance or the like. Or suppose that some Bulgarian clerk mistakenly thinks you owe it. He sends you a message to your apartment in Bulgaria as you have declared its address as your correspondence address. There's nobody there, so the message is returned to sender as nobody is found. Or there's some neighbor who receives it, but never informs you because he is absent minded or because he doesn't care. It doesn't matter why. What matters is that there's no reaction on your part about the order to pay the 20 Euro. You neither pay the sum nor appeal it and this way the term for the appealing is missed. The clerk then sends the unpaid order to the bailiff who in turn sends you a notice to pay the sum. Naturally he sends it to the same correspondence address as this is what you have written in his database. Again you don't receive the message and again in the eyes of the law you have received it. Meanwhile the 20 Euro have become 200 as expenses have been added. After you don't pay these 200 voluntarily, the bailiff has nothing to do, but to execute the order forcefully. His options here are limited. You don't receive your salary or pension in Bulgaria therefore he can't deduct the sum from these. So he has no alternative, but to look at your property and this means to sell your apartment. He warns you about it through sending a message to – guess where to? Yes, to your correspondence address. Again there's no payment, so he sells your 80 estate for 60 thousand Euro, he pays the state its 200 Euro and the 59 800 Euro minus the transfer expenses he deposits in a bank for you to take.
