Funny this came up, I was just talking to my dad about this last night.
He remained convinced that the estate pays the debts. I was philosophically arguing against that. If one has an account, with no AUs or joint people or anything, how could the CCCs come after them if the bills are left unpaid?
Can they sue the estate?

An evil collection agency for about $10,000 of that called and laid a guilt trip on my sister-in-law and flat out lied and told her that she was responsible for her dad's debts. "Don't be a deadbeat like your father was" she was told. She was threatened that the sherriff would come with a warrant if she didn't pay off the amount . Her and my brother took out a high-interest rate personal loan to pay this CA.They now know better, but are still kicking themselves over falling for that. There are lots of people out there who are convinced that they are responsible for their parents debts. I wish resources like this board were available 10 years ago.
