I have several medical collections on my credit report and I was confused to why they were there. It turns out they are my moms from her medical treatments. They said I must have signed something saying I was responsible for her debt, which I dont remember ever doing. If I did sign something its because it wasnt explained to me and I was sitting there watching my mom dying in the hospital.
Well my mom is okay and can pay her own bills (thank god)
But for my credits sake, can I get out of this? I was having a hard time figuring out why these medical bills kept coming up on my credit report and they are looking for the paper that I supposidly signed. Iff they cant find it do they need to remove the collections from my reports? She is supposed to call back here shortly!

sheesh I was wondering where they were cominmg from!!!!!! I got one that is in collection. The HOSPITIAL is calling the credit agency to remove the one for 116.00. I am so glad I caught this because I was about to have two more on my credit report. I wonder how much this will make my score jump. One collection just over a year old deleted. They said they would remove it today, hopefully it will reflect my report soon. SO that leaves TWO accounts for that horrible collection agency instead of 3.
