    If you default on a debt the creditor can add additional interest, penalties, fees, legal and court costs to the debt. The only way to avoid those charges would be to resolve your situation before you became delinquent and were sued.

    If you want to see specifically what they can add on, find your cardholder agreement and it is always detailed in that document.
