This may not work.  The creditors may find out about the BK anyway and close you out regardless.  You can't control which CCs stay open.  Although this "may" work, I wouldn't count on it.

Very bad idea.

 

Not only does it border on perjury / bankruptcy fraud, but it can result in successful objections to discharge.
