How did your wife get the card? Are you living together? What happened to the merchandise?

Took it out of my wallet while I was asleep. we are married .she still has merchandise.
Lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, the store is not liable, but you can sue your spouse for the unauthorized use of the card.

The credit card agreements all contain provisions making you liable for any unauthorized use by a family or household member.

That is why parents are often stuck holding the bag for their kids' unauthorized purchases.

Your remedy is to proceed against your spouse for reimbursement. It is not breach of contract.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
