Customer Question

This case has to do with a small business, a café, The person who had the idea for this café was unable to get a loan due to past bankruptcy, so he asked someone else to be part owner so they could use her credit. One year later the café has plenty of business, then the man with the original idea opened a second restaurant without telling the partner with the credit card about it, and was using her credit to get another loan and to buy inventory for the second restaurant. She retained a lawyer but the lawyer has done very little in the case except to say she is got nothing to stand on. The original idea man has since told her she was fired from the café, she was also working there. Is there any hope of her getting out from under the $100,000 she is now on the hook for?

this is unfortunate, in a situation such as this the only recourse is a lawsuit against the individual and to even consider a personal bankruptcy to get rid of the personal debt, and advise the bankruptcy court that this individual has used your credit to make large purchases with no intention to pay them back, he could be prosecuted through the bankruptcy court as well.

the individual should also make a fraud complaint with her credit agencies and advise them of these false loans, and advise the lender that gave her the loan, that the purchases are unauthorized as well.
