Your rights as a widow/ widower
Just when you think that you can take no more...The creditors start calling. They want the money from Hospital bills, ambulance rides, credit cards, yadda yadda yadda.
Let me tell you, I avoided those calls for a year! an entire YEAR. And those no good sorry SOB's called me NIGHT and DAY. They were relentless. Every time I would hear this call is for ____________ regarding so and so it made me ill. After a while I just turned the phone ringer off. I would check messages every few days.
We were about to file bankruptcy when My Love died... The Laws may be different from state to state however, I was told that I...
AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BILLS WITH MY HUSBANDS NAME ON IT. So...If it was HIS bill and he is dead, he cannot pay it. I am NOT responsible for bills in HIS name.
And, after being harrassed day and night I began to take these calls. After a Year of torture listening to the estate of____________. All I had to do is tell them that he is deceased and that I am NOT responsible for his bills.
My God! for a year I listened and cried. Cussed them out became insane with grief.
Just tell them it is NOT your bill and you will NOT pay it.....
I think that I just received my last call from medi-credit. Now I can answer the phone again...
