    You are not responsible for the debts of your father unless you cosigned them. Also this is a public forum and your questions may take some time to be answered, if they are answered at all. You should have more than 3 minutes of patience.

    If the estate was completely depleted of funds, you have nothing to inherit and also nothing to pay the remaining creditors. You are not responsible for his debts. When the creditors call you, tell them that your father has passed away and to stop calling you.
