I co-signed an account for my cousin (medical procedure). She missed two payments earlier this year, and now it's affecting my credit too. I tried disputing this, but they verified that I am a cosigner.
Can I do anything about this or is it possible to take my name OFF the joint account?
Recently I had applied for a credit card but was denied credit as my revolving debt is too high. However, everything else on my credit is up to date, and this is the only negative issue.
