Re: Credit Card Fraud

Not because of your failure to come up with the settlement amount. They can take you to court to collect the debt because you have not paid what you owe. If you made some type of false statement to obtain the credit, the company would have to make a complaint to a district attorney to prosecute you for a crime.
