Are you kidding me?

March 22nd, 2009 at 01:16 pm

My ex husband called today to ask about a credit card on his credit report. He is listed as an authorized user. It is my card. I hadn't realized that he was listed on the account. I had removed his name when we divorced. This is the account that I had trouble paying and have now set up payment arrangements with.

The "are you kidding me" comes because he wanted to know if when I got his taxes(for child support) I could pay it off. He actually said "we". Are you kidding me? There is another capital one card on my credit that I paid off after the divorce, even though he was supposed to pay it! He hasn't paid me any of the money from the divorce settlement. My credit is totally ruined due to the divorce and he wants me to take child support money to pay off a credit card that I have arrangments with? I told him that I didn't think so because I told our son that I would help him with his car. When I get it paid off, I will close the account but until then, I am not going to stress about it.

    Good for you for standing your ground. He lost all option to have an opinion in what you do with YOUR money a long time ago!

    Nerve! Why does he care about paying it off? Is it on his report, too?

    If he is only an autherized user, he can be removed at any time.

    I would suggest you call the company again and ask to have him removed so he cant make any purchases in the mean time.

    Since you said you removed him at the time of the divorce I suggest you ask for proof in writing that he has been removed this time so that any charges he makes can be considered as unauthorized.

    It is apparently on his credit report. I had him removed once we seperated. I am not sure why it is still on there. I told him to dispute it.

    Yup, all he has to do is dispute the account as not his. Not your problem if he wont do that simple task!
