I have just begun receiving settlement notices for the Estate of my mom to pay off her credit card debt. In these notices it reads that I am repsonsible to pay her debts off. There is nothing in the estate. I soley supported my mom for the last 4 years of her life. While she did receive Social Security monthly those checks couldn't even cover her overhead, after I made the minimum payment due monthly for her. Now they are expecting me to pay her debts. Is there anything that i can do about this? I am not going to pay her credit card debt. It was not my debt, and I should not be held responsible for it. Will this affect my credit score?
