My parents learned from my older siblings never to co-sign anything again for them. I have to say that I'm glad she was *trying* to pay it back. It's a mistake. She'll learn.

How old is your daughter? Because that's a bit concerning. And I don't think I would let anyone who has little to no knowledge use my credit card OP. You'll receive bad credit if debt is not paid off. :/

I work at a financial institution. People make this mistake all the time! Mistake meaning they put in the account number as the payment account too. Then call us asking why we charged their card the same day it was paid lol. Or submit payments with the paying account number in both spots. Goes both ways. All ages too.

The only way I see this happening is if people don't read anything before putting in the numbers. Otherwise it seems impossible to not understand that it should never be the same number in both fields.

Time to take back the credit card. The only te people should be allowed to use a credit card is when they understand how it works. Also, they should be in a position to pay off their credit ideally in the no interest period. A lot of people have fallen into a debt hole they dug up with their credit cards. It is so sad because it is so avoidable.

I wouldn't say stupid with money, but rather ignorant of credit cards. I know nothing about credit, taxes, 401ks, shit like that. But it's not like I am stupid. I just don't know yet.
