Can you transfer Credit Card debt to another person?


First post on this forum so hope this is in the right place.

A family member of mine has a few thousand pounds on their credit cards (they have 2), and they pay off around £300 a month on each card. Both of these cards have quite high interest rates.

My family member looked at switching their debt to an interest-free credit card, however, all of the free eligibility checkers online (including the MSE one) say he is not eligible.

He is currently unemployed but is searching for a new job. Is this why he is not eligible?

I was just curious – is it possible/legal to take an interest-free credit card out in my name (I am eligible) and transfer my family members debt onto my card?

Any help/advice would be massively appreciated, thank you!
