<p>Can you pull your CR to check? That is what I would do. It could be a glitch, but I would want to double-check and know for sure.</p><p> </p><p>Unless, as Webhopper said, you have 2 services. Then each one would send an alert. But that doesn't explain the difference in acct. numbers.</p>Thu, 03 Jan 2013 02:37:41 GMThttp://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/myFICO-Product-Feedback/MyFICO-alerts-show-cards-twice/m-p/1781692#M10326bichonmom2013-01-03T02:37:41ZRe: MyFICO alerts show cards twice

<p>Im only signed up with SW, and the same thing happen to me. There will be a change in one of my accounts, SW will say 2 accounts have had a change, and both accounts will be the same. I've gotten used to it, and just ignore it. Ive had SW since 2009, it started having this glitch sometime around early 2011, I think.</p>Thu, 03 Jan 2013 02:38:21 GMThttp://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/myFICO-Product-Feedback/MyFICO-alerts-show-cards-twice/m-p/1781694#M10327bigman0232013-01-03T02:38:21ZRe: MyFICO alerts show cards twice

By default within your Settings, SW will alert you to balance increases based on $x and will alert you to balance increases based on x%. I think the default is $5 and 5%, though can't remember. So....if both settings are set to "Y" for yes, then each time you have a CC that increases by x% and $x, you'll see two alerts for the same account. You can turn one of the two off if bothersome. Just select "N" for no on one of the two.</p><p> </p><p> </p>Thu, 03 Jan 2013 02:55:15 GMThttp://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/myFICO-Product-Feedback/MyFICO-alerts-show-cards-twice/m-p/1781774#M10330llecs2013-01-03T02:55:15ZRe: MyFICO alerts show cards twice
