Having split from his partner, a friend’s son has since discovered that she ordered several thousand pounds worth of clothing and other items using his bank cards. As far as I can ascertain having entered into credit agreements with on-line companies, she has now presented him with a number of final demands for payment and the companies involved have told him that since he was living at the address when the orders were placed he is responsible for payment.

It’s impossible for him to prove to his bank that he didn’t place the orders, but he didn’t, so what’s the solution? Must he just grit his teeth and bear it?

First thing he needs to do is check his credit report with someone like Experian. That should at least tell him all the credit accounts in his name. Second is collect all the info together insofar as possible. ie item, date of order/delivery etc. What email address did these companies have? Normally they require an email or at least a phone number. Does he have...

PP re //I don't think you can have a joint credit card.// Thanks for the correction. I haven't applied for a new credit card for at least a decade and all ours are individual cards with the spouse having a second card on the account, even the cards from banks where we have a joint account. I assumed we'd done it that way because we had to, hence the "think" in my statement.
Vera and I never hid them from each other, indeed we have used each others for various reasons. The banks were aware of this.
PP re // a joint credit card.// Thanks for the correction.\\

erm no prob - I think people have to realise that names on credit cards can be a risk to your wealth !

this is A opening cards in B names ( I thought B had gone out and spent on ABs' card) and is clearly fraud
s3 or something - uttering a document with intent to gain
( gain not needed, uttering is enough so long as you have a naughty naughty intention)
