Long story short my brother in law was very tight with me...like brothers from another mother. He couldnt get a cell phone due to having no credit. Being the nice guy I am I told him that I would add him on to my account, it would save him the $500 depoit they were asking. SO he gladly went up there to the store with me and picked out a phone in which was only $50.00 with 1 year contract. Everything went fine for the first few months. After that he slowly quit paying his bills, was using up to 3K minutes a month and his plan was for 800.....bills were comming in with late notices. Im confused because im paying mine so I call and he hadent paid his bill in 2 1/2 months!!! his last time he sent a payment in his bill was $90.00 and he sent them $25!!! so none the less he had a $600.00 bill on his hands . He didnt pay and they shut mine and his phone off! That was X-mas eve. What would you do in this situation? Since this crap started things with him and my sister went down hill, she kicked him out, he lost his job, he got a new job he lost that job etc... So now the bill between my account and his is $700+ my bill is current im not late infact I will owe my monthly fee is due around the 17th. This is the 2nd time this has happened The first time it happend the bill was $1,200 from nextel. $300 was mine (out of town for 2 weeks making calls ouch!) So I paid mine and he didnt pay his. He made small 40-60 dollar payments. I paid his ballance to keep the phones on and he paid me back in like 6 months! Now he is gone nowher to be seen I know he is 2 towns over and I know where he works now (for a competitor landsacper ) but I do not want to go face to face with him because I know I will flip on him and land up in jail. Do I take him to court? do I just forgett about it and pay his ballance? do I take him to collections and screw up what little credit he has?
