Does GECRB always do reporting prefirst statement? Other than their intial new account/0 balance days after the app, that is.
I was trying to keep my new cards clean, but that tricky GECMB/Paypals account got me. They reported originally a new line of credit with 0 balance on August 20th, on August 28 I made a Paypal purchase of $76 dollars and paid it in full 2 days later. Apparently I waited too long to pay as they reported that $76 to the credit agencies already as a balance and my first statement has yet to close.
Yes, I knew it would report within days of my app, but it ninja reported a second time, immediately after my first purchase, prior to my first closing date. Caught me a bit off guard.
