Just logged into online banking and my card disappeared. Called in and the system said it was closed. Spoke to a rep, and she also said Visa reported to them that a merchant I shopped at experienced a security breach. She could not tell me where it was. She said they would be issuing a new card. I then asked if they could expedite it. She tried to do it and then said I would need to call again in the morning to speak to their "Credit Team." That may mean fraud or an analyst. My utilization has been a steady 5-10% over the past few months. I think I may have shopped at Target during the breach period. I am not sure what this is about. The last time they softed me was in early December. I hope my account is not permenantly closed.

You should be fine. There will be a record on their end of your account, and it doesn't look like you've done anything to put yourself in an unsatisfactory relationship with BofA. Just follow up with them.

I was in these shoes, yes, your account is permanently closed. What they do is they create a new account with all your information copied to it, then delete the old one from your credit reports. It doesn't hurt you. It is a PAIN in the backside for the two weeks you're without a card, especially since they didn't notify me first!

Experian has already updated with the new account number and a mid-cycle balance of $600.

Just curious to know, how this would be updated in your Credit Bureaus.
Please update us, once your new card reports.
It's just an automatic update from the lender with the new card # that basically replaces the old one, same history and information though.
