David Humphreys' answer it does sound like a scam. I understand you never agreed to such a referral fee up front. If this is a consumer loan i would contact the consumer protection unit of the state Attorney Generals Office in Santa Fe.
You have a claim for the tort of unreasonable debt collection if they continue to attempt to collect from you. I would write them a quick letter and send it either registered mail receipt requested or by fax to prove you sent it.
David Humphreys' answer if consumer credit reports are being pulled from Credit Reporting Agencies and used for cold calling customers by phone, that would be a willful violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Their is a statutory damage provision for damages up to one thousand per person. Whistelblowers have rights under Federal Law. You can get more information at hwh-law.com
David Humphreys' answer you need to dispute the false credit reporting directly with the credit reporting agencies and the credit card company.

David Humphreys' answer You should obtain a consultation with a consumer law attorney. Search the web for lawyers that handle consumer fraud in Oklahoma; thats what happened to you. You need to get a competent attorney and take action. The stress of your situation is going to go away unless you deal with this problem and get started on a solution.
David Humphreys' answer I recommend you speak with an attorney in your jurisdiction because your question is complex and depends on what claims you bring. In other words, certain federal claims have a one or two year statute of limitations, while some state law claims expire only after three, five or even longer period of years. The general rule is that a cause of action accrues and the time period to sue begins to run when you first can maintain a case, meaning you have sustained damages. The discovery rule may or...
David Humphreys' answer There is a federal Military Lending Act, but I am not aware of a state law passed in Oklahoma. The federal law does offer protections but you don't say in what way you think the MLA was violated. Please provide more information and I will evaluate. Thank you.
PS Don't let the time to answer the suit run, the predator will be able to get a judgment by default against you and you will lose your rights forever to defend yourself.

Unless you signed on as an authorized user on the account, you are likely not responsible for any of the charges; either those made before or after he passed. If you signed up for the card, you may be liable. Ask the credit card company for a copy of what you signed that they say makes you owe on the account. If they don't have anything, i would not pay. If the credit card company calls you or if they assign the debt to a debt collector, be sure to tell them what...
