Contact the credit card company and explain your circumstances. Whatever the problem, you are 100% responsible for the debt that person has incurred. Cancel their credit card (should have been done immediately) and pay off their debt! If you are fortunate enough to have your own credit cards after all this and have a good credit rating and you are paying off this person's debt then your credit rating will not be altered in any way. DON'T COSIGN FOR ANYONE! Marcy

I cosigned for my son in laws car he went bankrupt the court made him get rid of the most exp vehicle Its been on my credit for 5 years how do you get it off I thought there was a class action suit?

You are better off to give the money to someone rather than cosign. Cosigning means that you are responsible for that debt if the person you cosigned for doesn't pay up. The court would have your son-in-law sell the vehicle and pay the bank back and whatever is left over is your responsibility. Go to the bank you and your son-in-law went too and they will straighten things out for you.

An entry may be marked 'paid' or 'settled' but it will remain on the credit report for the required 7 years and cannot be removed by the consumer. The consumer can write a 100 words or less letter of dispute to the reporting credit bureau(s) and the letter will be added to the person's credit file.
