Strange story -- I have a perfect payment history with around 20 cards, I never use my Home Depot card ever -- until a few months ago I used it to make an in-store purchase. The card is issued by CNBA. (Citi -- I have several of their cards.) Because of the purchase, I received for the very first time statements from Home Depot. In my apartment complex my next door does use Home Depot a lot and he ended up with my statements until he realized the error and dropped the statements off at my apartment. I paid the balance immediately. 38 days late means it will be reported. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from appearing on my credit report? I already called Citi to explain the situation and the woman made a note but said she has never seen them not report when the situation is anything except a bank error. Thank you!
Just turned down for Chase Saphhire due to, ""Too many bankcard or other revolving accounts were opened recently". According to Chase, this is a reason for what the rep said is a "Hard Decline." i.e., no amount of escalation will lead to them changing their mind. I'm a long time Chase customer (car loans, Freedom card, etc.) and have no dings on my CR at all. Any options for recourse? (Clearly not, but never hurts to ask the community.)
