But if you do have a consistent 9% utilization, how can they close the card? I thought they would slash the CLI but I would still have the open card. If they close a card with a balance, its gonna mess my account up again. Dont they have to give me a chance to pay the card off and close it so that it atleast has a positive record?

Thanks for your informative post.

Credit card companies can close your card whenever they want for whatever reason they want.  Your account would still be a "positive record" as long as you continued to make payments and the ccc did not decide to CO the account.

Nothing special about prime banks as they are the ones who are screwing with our accounts. I have Amex, HSBC,BoA,Citi and I refuse to use those cards because I am afraid of putting notice on myself for a CLD.
