Dying with Debt -- who's responisible?
A sibling died and had significant credit card debt. We sent all creditors copies of the death certificate. Now debt collectors are calling us.
We have co-signed for NOTHING with the deceased. It is making me uncomfortable that they are calling us. There is no will, assets are less than the debts, and no executor.
Stupidly, I had a conversation with two creditors explaining this. I never took responsibility for the debt but now I am thinking I should not be talking to anyone of them. Since, of course, I am not responsible for this person's debt and not inheriting anything from the estate.
Can someone give me direction of what to say when these people call? Short off something nasty!
