Card with no balance but it's negative on all three credit reports?

I'm so confused!

 

I just pulled all three of my reports to find a credit card, which was paid in full five years ago, listed as negative on my credit report. What's going on here and how do I fix it and and get it off my reports?

 

Thanks so much for your reponses! I'm new, and obviously confused! :smileywink:

Did this card ever have any late payments?  Did you pay it off or was it a charge off?  Both will report a zero balance.

I paid this in full five years ago, in 2003 and never had any late payments.

 

What should I do? Close the account?

did you ever lose the credit card and report it lost or stolen? I lost a card once and had it replaced from the bank and I noticed there was a "potentially negative account" email sent to me from freecreditreport.com and it was due to the credit card that was lost/stolen. Not sure how or why that would be negative information, but I called the bank and chewed someone a new one, and they fixed it.

I would give the bank a call if you haven't done so already..
