co-signer on bank account?
June 11th, 2009 by Questions
My son filed for bankruptcy, which included a little over 1000.00 in overdraft on his bank account. Years after he opened this account, I got a bank card, on his acct as he moved to the U.S. & I needed access to his acct to pay bills, for him, here in ontario. The bank know tells me that I am a co-signer on his bank acct so I must pay this debt.The bank mgr asked me when I called if the statement`s were addressed to both of us,& it`s only addressed in my son`s name. Also, my son asked me, why did the bank let him get the overdraft and not make me sign for that since they consider me a co-signer or this to be a joint account. Does the bank have the right to come after me?
