The prefix of my prefix is not real

My prefix was not declared real

My infix is basically natural

My suffix is everything else

And if you owe me, I'll come pounding at your door

What am I?

From the old Fortran joke:

GOD is Real, unless declared Integer (variable types in Fortran)

I'd say

"Int" is the prefix, and "i" the prefix of the prefix. The base(-ically) natural is "e", and everything else is the "rest"

Making the answer:

Interest, which if owed, could lead to debt collectors at your door

This also fits nicely with the title, as:

"Tell me more about that" is displaying Interest

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, this is correct! I don't know if it is proper for me to accept immediately or wait a day like on other SE sites. In any case I will be accepting this answer as it is the first to be correct. $\endgroup$ – YoungJohn Apr 12 '18 at 14:53
