Husband charged gambling debts on three different CCs totaling $45,000.

I am sorry you are going through these things. I hope your husband is getting some help and is in a group.


First if your name is not on a credit card then they can't come after you. They can't come after him for a card that is in just your name either. The card that you are an authorized user on. That one yes because the company doesn't really know if you have used it or not. If the card is current then I would have your husband take your name off that card today

Hi, Isabel!
Thanks for sharing your story with us. That must be very stressful for you! It's good that its all out in the open now and that he is getting help. That is the most important part.

MaryAnn gives terrific advice, and hopefully some other folks can add their ideas in, too. I wish you all the best - please let us know how things work out for you. Feel free to keep asking questions, venting, whatever. That's what we're here for !

Hang in there,

Amanda
