Re: Is this hurting my credit?

if it's closed, then yes, because it's showing like you are over your limit.

Re: Is this hurting my credit?

Actually, no it is not hurting your credit. A balance on a closed account does NOT make it look like you are over the limit. A closed account with a balance still factors into your utlization. According to the entry you posted it is on time/never late...it doesn't get much better than that. As far as the notation that it was closed by the credit grantor..this means absolutely nothing for FICO scoring. You may come accross those who believe otherwise but trust me, I've spent hours researching it a year or so back and that is simply a notation on the account...it has absolutely nothing to do with the payment history/overall rating of the account as far as your score is concerned.

if it still factors into your utilization, then the balance HAS to count.  it doesn't just count the CL; it counts your usage of that CL as well.

please explain how it would make it look like he/she is over the credit limit. A closed account still factors the credit limit against the balance just as if it was an open account. The only real difference is that you can't make charges on a closed account...

i see now, i was wrong.  can't read apparently Smiley Sad  i thought the balance was 1420, which is why i didn't understand why you thought he was not over the limit on a 750 CL card.  thank you for correcting me!

 

but yes, we are both right about what the situation would be IF the balance WAS 1420.  Smiley Happy

If you ever have a live human being look at your CR, (i.e. a manual review) "Closed by consumer" does look better than "Closed by credit grantor". That being said, manual reviews are not too common nor does it appear to be substantial difference. But yes, as far as your FICO is concerned they are no different.
