Now my credit card company says that because I gave him the card I am responsible for the charges even though they were made with out my permission. Can they really do that? Do I have any option for getting rid of these charges?
If the person is on the account, officially, as "Authorized User", knows passwords, etc., then yes, you are liable. You could say it was stolen. Do they have YOUR signature on file? You could sue him, take him to small claims court.
