My question involves a banking matter in the State of: New York
My mother has just received a claim from a bank claiming she owes 13000 $. She has never applied for this credit card and has never signed any documents for this bank.
She has to file an answer at the civil court this week.
What does she risk?
In the event that my father, who passed away in March 2008 and who was not mentally well for the past year, obtained this credit card in her name (we are still searching for proof of anything!), what would she risk??
Thank you for any prompt answers. My mother is 76 yrs old and very frightened of the idea of having to go to court!!
