I have already contacted the credit card company - there is no way they are letting me off the hook ...

Kimberly,

I agree with some of the other posters, I would check first to make sure that you are solely liable for the credit card debt. If necessary, pay a Lawyer $50 for a consulation and get a legal opinion. If you didn't sign the intital credit application, I don't see how they can legally call it your debt. Ten grand is a lot of dough, I would make sure before you accept this responsibility.

The absolute last thing that I would do is listen to the credit card company, they could care less what position you are in. They just want their money and don't care who has to pay it. They will tell you that you must give them your first-born if they think you will go for it.

Good luck with this and finding a new job.

Bret
