A credit card company can sue you and receive a judgment in court demanding you repay your debt, but they can't take your car (or any other property) or put you in jail. Check out the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act for your rights as a consumer.

No, you should not have to take out a credit card in your name for business use. Also, if you do this and something goes wrong with the company, YOU will be responsible for the credit debt.

However, a company can require you to accept responsibililty for a company credit card issued for your use.

Can a credit card company take money out of your account without an electronic signature and without your approval even if you cancel the transaction?

Generally, no, unless you cancel the transaction after the fact. If you have made a payment to the credit card company and cancel after the time the transaction was made, yes, the credit card company may take money out of your checking/savings account. If you made some mistake when using your credit card which resulted in a fee or finance charge, the credit card company may put that amount on your credit card bill but may not take the amount out of your checking/savings account unless you specifically ask them to. If you have automatic payments set up, the credit card company may honor those instructions until you send them a WRITTEN request to change the setup. Most card companies allow you to bypass the written component and change automatic payments online.
