Given that ALL debt is included in a ch7 bankruptcy per the bankruptcy laws, would it not constitute fraud for someone to try and use a tradeline, without the creditor's authorization, knowing that said tradeline is legally included in the filing/discharge whether or not it was listed in the debtor schedule?

I guess i will have to ask my lawyer to get his input on this. if filling chapter 7 terminates all the credit cards and their terms after discharge then the current open credit cards terms may be no longer valid and may need reaffirming. this is getting to complex.
