You will be likely to experience anxiety, possibly even (later) fear of the consequences. You will be responsible for the debt obviously, and if you say you actually never intended to pay for it, subject to criminal fraud charges...which is what you did by fraudulently signing and saying you would do something you had no intent of doing, in order to get goods from someone else. Stealing is another term that may be applied.
