It's hard to believe that this "big company" is taking the situation so lightly.
They're going to start caring much more when the other cards stop working. I'm not 100% on how Corporate Amex accounts function, but I would imagine it will affect more than just the user's card. If the CEO of this large entity goes to use his card and can't, for example, I would expect a shit storm....
This is certainly a possibility. I have been in contact with the our finance dept and the person who handles the AMEX accounts. Even HR has looked into this. So far their stance is that it is my responsibility to pay the bill. We have always been told that these cards are our responsibility to pay and we are allowed to put personal charges on the account. All this being said. this is a huge amount and if AMEX goes after the co to pay I'm quite sure I'll be done. The big question is whether I'm going to be sued by my company or AMEX?

Does the OP have it in writing that personal charges are allowed? If not I'd worry more about going to jail than my credit score. I work for a mega corp that has pursued criminal charges over things like this. $75k might not be a lot, but if the rest of the company finds out that they can fund weekend business ventures with no personal risk.....well...that would be bad...at this point I'd say the best you could hope for would be getting fired then getting sued by amex.
As for who is responsible, that easy, the OP. Read one of the receipts you signed, you agreed to pay the bill.

The personal green card has a Pay Over Time option that the corporate card has no mention of. You could try converting the account to a personal green card to use POT. Maybe you can convert it to a Blue and carry a balance. Or you can try to get your employer to pay the balance and have you pay them back monthly. Try your best not to burn your relationship with your employer or Amex: they can burn you too. Good luck!
