It depends on who's complaining about it. Creditors generally will challenge the filing as being made in bad faith; the Chapter 13 trustee can also be alerted to these facts and may very well move to dismiss the case on bad-faith grounds as the bankruptcy code isn't set up to allow abuse like this. If you're not a creditor but an interested party I would suggest contacting the Chapter 13 trustee as soon as you can and lay the facts out to him or her.
