My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Florida
In my divorce decree my Ex husband was ordered to pay AMEX 12M for his charges on the card with his name on it. The original account was opened by phone by me as the primary account holder. I cancelled my card with AMEX 8 years ago but they would not close the account because he still had an open balance. They not only let him keep charging, they upped his limit. All the charges were made by him while overseas and for the past 3 years they are comming after me. I have received many attempts by what appears to AMEX to settle the debt at half off, but I am afraid this is a collection agency trying to get me to reopen the case. I don't have the money to clear this off my credit report and its killing any chances of me getting a mortgage. What if anything can I do. The judge from my divorce case cannot compel him to pay since he is out of work.
