My husbands ex-wife lives in MO while we live in Va. They have been divorced for 8 years. We have been receiving phone calls from a collection agency asking for her. They have stated she gave my husbands name and address to use on a credit application. She evidently signed his name to the application. The total bill she owes is in excess of $2,000. She does not have a job and is on welfare and every public assistance program you can imagine. The debt is now on my husbands credit report. I should mention she has a deep hatred for my husband, going as far as having him arrested for harrasment. The charge was completely dismissed by the courts and the D.A. wanted to prosocute her . My husband works for the Virginia State Police and this is causing problems with Internal revenue. Can anyone tell me what legal action we have and what class of charges each would be?
