No. If the debt has been discharged in bankruptcy, no one can come after you for it.

Creditors cannot demand payments from you while you are in bankruptcy if they (or the seller of debt) have been notified about your bankruptcy. If your bankruptcy case gets dismissed, expect numerous letters from old and new creditors.

Often times the discharged debt will be sold, our firm routinely sues these collectors for violating the discharge injunction.
