My girlfreind opened up a store and her credit was bad, so some how my name and information ended up on a credit card machine contract. This company harassed me for money to pay the bill or send it to collections. I paid them the money to keep it out of collections and finally got them to send me a copy of the contract. NOT my signature at all, my girlfreind says she did not sign the paperwork with my information on it and fake signature. There is another guys name on there from the bank that this account was started from. The company wants me to file fraud charges, what do i do? My credit is trashed because of this issue. There is evidently two contract signed that day with what is suppose to be my signature and one of them was on a no cancellation contract. What can i do?Is there legal action I can take against the credit card machine company and the bank that allowed this to happen without verifing with me personally? One of the company said they cannot be touched. I understand that who ever did this to me has cost me alot, and I need to know what to do and what action needs to be taken at this time. Not to sound to absurb, but I find it hard to beleive that a bank and a company will just start writing contracts out without checking with the individual first to verify this is about to happen. Shouldnt they be held responsible for making the sale on the account and not checking the information?
