    They can't confiscate anything because it is an unsecured loan, but the loan contract can allow them to attach bank accounts or salary, and the lender can file a lawsuit in court and get a judge to order seizure of money or goods. Some places are stricter about processes than others. Court costs and legal fees can be added to the debt along with interest and can become much larger than the original loan.

    First they have to sue you and get a judgment.  What they can seize at that point depends on the laws where you live, those vary.

    Nothing. That's why it's called unsecured. They can go to court and get a judgement against you and garnish your wages if necessary.

    Nothing. That's why the interest rates for unsecured loans are much higher than for secured loans.

    Unsecured, pretty much says it all. If the amount is worth it to the loan giver, they can sue. If they win, future earnings or seize your accounts.

    To recover the outstanding debt they can initiate legal action against the borrower. If a lender sues, debtors who hire attorneys may incur hundreds or thousands of dollars in legal expenses. If the lender wins in court, the borrower may have no choice to pay the legal fees plus the amount of the debt; in some cases, the court may also order that the borrower pay the lender’s legal expenses as well. If the debtor cannot pay, a court may force the borrower into bankruptcy. Wage garnishment is the usual outcome.

    The lender can't go after your "stuff".

    However, they can sue you, get a judgement and then go after your bank account and your wages.
