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. :smileyhappy:

 

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