No

However, the person owed the money will need to be convinced that it was not you that purchased the goods. Not so long ago this was not as easy as it sounds because someone would need your card details, how did they get those if you did not give them to them etc.

Now with card fraud by swiping etc reaching epidemic proportions it is relatively easy to convince a retailer that the transaction has nothing to do with you.
