You can be sued where you live for debts contracted anywhere. If they get a judgment (anywhere - VA or NC), they can enforce the judgment in VA. One way to enforce in VA is to garnish wages or bank accounts - the fact that the plaintiff is from somewhere else does not affect this. However, unemployment can't be garnished.
