1 Answer from Attorneys
He should pull his credit report, contact the creditor's certified mail/return receipt noting the date of divorce and her unauthorized use of his name. He should demand the credit application used to open the account.
Also, he should contact her, certified mail/return receipt noting a violation of the divorce decree and possible fraud and criminal activities. If she continues with this, you might need to go to court and contact the postmaster general. This might be federal mail fraud, among other federal crimes. If he is being ask to pay on these bills, he can also sue her for all amounts due and other damages.
