I added DBF as an AU within the past month, so I'm not sure if they've posted yet to his report. I'm also almost OCD-like when it comes to checking my CC status/balance, so if a charge posted, I would know fairly quickly & would pay something towards it for the sake of my own credit. Of course, DBF knows 1.) To discuss any non-emergency charges beforehand and 2.) He is on the hook regarding any charges he makes as far as I am concerned.


You're on the hook regarding any charges he makes as far as your creditor is concerned. Smiley Happy

 

Simply saying to be honest with yourself about the actual risk and responsibility of making someone an AU.
