Well i have been to the USA a few times, and i worked over there and had a visa etc 6 years ago.
The thing is, i got in some trouble just under 5 years ago and i'm due to go to New York next month on holiday and i'm worried it may stop me. it's a surprise for my girlfriend.
Basicly, to keep it short, a few years ago, i met a girl who turned out to be a very bad person. she took my savings and everything i had and i was left with nothing and had nowhere to live.
My folks were out of town so i went to a holiday inn style motel - and stayed there for 5 nights and when it came to check out, of course i didn't have any money. But i just needed somewhere to sleep. I didn't damage the room, etc, nothing like that. just slept there.
Anyway, they called the cops and they said i had to pay, so i went to court and paid for my stay, and that was it. But at the time they said it was deception, as i knew i couldn't pay for the room in the first place.
I had never been in trouble before and have not since. Like i said, it was just under 5 years ago and everything is good, has been since then.
I have been on holiday to a few places and went to Cuba last year but i'm hearing different things about America now.
Somw say i have no chance whilst others say they are only interested in people who have been involved in weapons, assault, drugs that sort of thing but i'm not sure.
And i don't want to put yes on my entry card if i dont have to, as i dont want unneccassary attention brought to me. i have filled out that ESTA thing online and said no to everything and it was fine.
i'm worried, as it's all booked.
any advice, opinions please.
