You can always sue a customer who did not return a phone that you rented to them. It will help in court if you have a rental agreement that spells out the obligations of the customer. As far as the international student, there isn't much you can do other than sue the student and serve him/her with court papers at their last known address. Many rental companies try and avoid such situations by keeping a security deposit or having a hold charge on a credit card or factoring in losses as part of the margins of the business. Generally, you can deduct such losses. Please rate my answer. Good luck!
