I am an authorized user of a credi card, if the main user defalts on the cc, can I be held responsible for the debt? The cc company does not have my ss number. I need to know for this individual is in bad money shape.

Thanks

No.  It is somewhere in the written contract that the account holder is responsible for all purchases made.

Current:
TU (5/14/14): 796 (Inquiries; 8/23/13)
EQ (3/23/14): 791 (Inquiries: 8/23/13)
EX (9/24/13): 780 (Inquiries: 7/2/12; 11/20/12; 7/30/13; 8/23/13)

Goals: No new inquiries for 2014, 800 for all CRs by 12/31/14

If you are an AU on the account of someone who is in bad $$ shape I would recommend getting removed ASAP. While you are not responsible for the debt incurred any delinquencies on the account will have an effect (negative) on your credit score.
