I wonder if anyone can be of assistance.

I was the director of a company and was contacted by American Express offering me an American Express Business card which accepted and used as it was incredibly useful for the company.

Unfortunately, the company went into liquidation, and I am told by American Express's appointed legal team that I am personally liable for the debt. I just want to ask is this true?

The card has both mine and my companies name on it. American Express do not have my home address as the card was taken out in my understanding, for the business.

The business always claimed the VAT refunds from purchases on the card, so in my eyes, it was always a company card, with bills addressed to the company, and when the company was forced into liquidation, the card balance would be the responsibility of the liquidators.

Can anyone advise on this please?

Many Thanks
