I will have to opt out and open this for another expert who actually specializes in bankruptcy. I have never heard of having to name a creditor that was not a creditor but there may be some exceptions and I do not want to provide the wrong answer.
Assuming this was a voluntary filing, creditors are - by definition - those parties who have a claim against the Bankruptcy filer when the Bankruptcy is filed. Bankruptcy Stat. 101(10). In general, only creditors belong in the Bankruptcy petition - there is no accounting for vendors who are not owed money when the Bankruptcy is filed - unless those vendors received money within a certain amount of time before the Bankruptcy was filed (because this may constitute a "preference", the payment of which can be reversed).
Accordingly, the debtor is not supposed to include vendors with whom it has done business, but to whom no money is owed - unless that vendor's payment can be deemed to be a "preference", and therefore taken back.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
