Banks are setup for death. You just notify them of the death with a death certificate and the next of kin gets any remaining funds, if it's overdrawn the account is simply closed.

My fiance died last year and her parents had to notify all her CC and bank accounts, those that were overdrawn were closed, those that were in credit they got the money

My great-aunt is about 25000 in debt to the back, shes 90. Her logic is, "Theyve been ******* me for years so I might as well **** them in death"

Call me an optimist, but I think that the bank is just really ******* confident that the platinum line of credit makes you immortal.

If a family member dies with debt never offer to take care of it, if you don't the bank cant do **** about it.

This is true. I used to work for capital one. We had a whole department devoted to trying to get people to assume the debt of their loved ones and it was pretty easy since nobody knew that the debt dies with the person. (Except student loans. If you take out a student loan under the age of 23 and then die under the age of 23 your parents are automatically on the hook for it.) If you get contacted by one of these departments, you have to tell them several times that you take no part in the debt. It was called "probate" at capone, not sure about other places.

I had something similar happen. The creditor called for my Grandfather after his death. when i told them he had passed away. they wanted to speak to his wife... I mentioned she had passed away years prior to him... without missing a beat... the creditor said "Well tell them i called please." ... I responded with..."How? Hold a Seance?"

best way to **** the banks

max out your credit right before you die and gift all your stuff away so theres nothing in your estate for them to claim

According to this bank;


Their loans are insured up to $100,000, after which point, they ask you to perform a medical assessment before they give you any money.

So yeah, I guess you could get $100,000, but then it's arseholes like you that raise the interest rates on everybody else's loans below $100,000. The banks have to pay more to the insurance companies due to defaulted loans, and they pass that lost profit directly back to customers in the form of interest rate increases.

If the card was only signed to her then the debt cancels. my uncle died of cancer 4 weeks ago and for the last 2 years he was living with it, he bought little things like gas or food, tv, electricity, on a credit card signed only to him. that way for the last 2 years of his life he never paid for that out of his own money and saved his actual money for his family to help pay off the mortgage of his house. His final gift to his family...

That bank then is doing something highly illegal, that OR the family neglected to tell the bank she died by sending the death certificate asap. Banks close accounts as soon as they are informed the person has died, any funds go to next of kin. Because otherwise people can commit fraud using a dead person's information.

But it's most likely more than likely fake so what does it matter.

you can sue for **** like this. my neighbors were harassed relentlessly after their mother died and she was still being billed for her credit card. it got so bad that the company actually reported them for not paying and the cops showed up. after they explained the situation to the officers, they were told to not worry about it cause apparently the company tried to pull **** like this all the time. they told them to just threaten to sue. they did. company never bothered them again

My ma killed herself four years ago, and we're still getting calls from banks about her owing like... ten to one-hundred bucks.

You're supposed to contact any institutions after death ASAP. If they had a phone contract, if they had a mortgage, bank accounts, pay tv account, utilities.. etc etc. Obviously someone got lazy - if this is real.
