Re: Being in Debt
the creditors don't care if you said you paid it off. they go according to their records. so unless you have proof like a letter from verizon, that won't fly.
and since it's on your record, you want to get it off as soon as possible and not let it drag or else it's really going to hurt your credit. so yeah, it's gonna have to come out of your pocket immediately. go after your girl later. the creditors don't care about your past relationship. they just want to collect the bill, and unfortunately, it's in your name.
just be fortunate it's $700 and not a few grand.
