I Agree!I agree with you NBey -people should pay back what they truly owe and it's up to us to stay credit worthy.  And to continue to be credit worthy you have to be

real careful in these days and times.  This could have ballooned into a collection.

Doctor offices are known for double billing and grocery stores are too.  One credit reporting agency don't list medical bills and there is one thing that I agee with that have been changed recently in 2008 with the credit reporting agencies is that another person can not piggyback as a user on someone else's credit card to increase their credit score anymore when that person has good credit or it affects yours if they have bad.  They caught companies selling the privledge. So now, if you are a user - that person's credit worthiness does not help or hurt you at all and credit scores are being changed both ways. So so people's credit score is going to go up and some are going to go down if they are listed as a user on someone else's card and that credit card will not be listed on their credit report.

    So, you wouldn't even check out everything to make sure you are paying debts you owe. I have had doctor's offices double bill and over charge me in the past and I would check out everything before anyone got 1 penny!!

    An inaccurate charge isn't a debt. If you don't understand the answers to your own question, perhaps you should rethink the question.

    Given the multitude of answers you offered, perhaps you should ask what debt is.

      I beg to differ Ky Floyd.  An inaccurate charge is a debt until either it's paid or you prove that it is inaccurate and have it totally removed.  If you want to get technical about it.

        Not that it would mean much now that you have won the big one but creditors and banks say not to pay off all your debts all at once you should pay them over time to increase your credit score. You may think it doesn't mean much but it does. Especially if you want to buy lots of big item purchases which should also be paid off with credit.

        Actually, what they are talking about is keeping one or two lines of credit still in use.   I have seen all types of credit, and it is amazing how the scores can differ.  The real key to good scores is to have SMALL amounts on any credit you have and NOT be near the credit limit.  And of course this assumes paying on time, which is the most important.

        Money won is twice as good as money earned!

              I voted only verifiable.

              Remember the News item about the female pharmacist in Illinois that showed up in disguise to claim her winnings- part of the reason for the disguise being to avoid frivilous lawsuits?

              Think if you hit a jackpot you wouldn't be getting some bogus bills?

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    If that's the case you're  a deadbeat, because you still owe me 50 grand. Since you must have lost it, let me know where to send another copy of the bill.

                             congrats

                             

                            You were brave starting this poll.   I started one like this asking if someone who received government assistance because they didn't want to work should or should not repay after a big win.

                             

                            Apparently it touched a lot of raw nerves of those on government assistance.

                             

                            With a 100 million win, there would be no way they would miss the pay back.
