THE  TERM  DOES NOT INCLUDE A SELLER, HOLDER OR LENDER WHO BECOMES OBLI-
GATED TO AN ASSIGNEE OF SUCH PARTY'S RIGHTS; OR (II) IN THE  CASE  OF  A
CONSUMER  CREDIT  ACCOUNT  BECOMES  OBLIGATED  UNDER  THE AGREEMENT AS A
CO-SIGNER, CO-MAKER, GUARANTOR, ENDORSER OR SURETY WITH  RESPECT  EITHER
TO  ALL  PURCHASES  AND  LOANS,  OR A SPECIFIED MAXIMUM DOLLAR AMOUNT OF
PURCHASES AND LOANS THAT WILL BE OBTAINED FROM TIME TO TIME PURSUANT  TO
THE  AGREEMENT  WHETHER OR NOT IT IS CONTEMPLATED THAT THE CO-SIGNER MAY
RECEIVE ANY OF THE PROPERTY, SERVICES OR MONEY TO BE OBTAINED. THE  TERM
