I am the authorized user on my mother's accts because she had a stroke and it is negatively affecting my credit even though I am not financially responsible for her bills. Is there any way to fix this? How can a bill you are not financially responsible for show on your credit as my credit was not obtained to issue the card so how can it show on my credit report as being responsible for repayment when I have no control over the account?
