It depends on what they did. You would need to talk to a lawyer. * Absolutely. It takes a lot of research, stamina and just plain guts but it is a given in the world of litigation that the debtor can always find a casus belli which can be used as the basis of a suit against the creditor. For example, the arbitrary charging of "late fees", antitrust violations, fraud, and so forth. The three words that will strike fear in the hearts (if they had any) of all major creditors are "class action suit".

How can a credit card company sue you when you were not working when you received the card and are not working now and have no cosigner?

In court, "Sue" just means "ask". The credit card company is just asking the court to require you to pay the debt. Yes, they can ask the court to require you to pay. The way THEY view it: You took on an obligation to pay for credit card purchases. You promised to pay for future purchases and be responsible with your finances when you signed the credit card agreement. Then, every time you used the card, you signed an agreement stating that you would pay for the purchases. Now you're claiming that it wasn't your fault, that the credit card company is responsible because they gave you a card when you weren't employed... It was YOUR responsibility to only purchase what you could pay for. The credit card company didn't have a method of determining your ability to pay for your debts.
