You might want to elaborate on how making a large payment led to this CLD. If you posted it elsewhere throw up a link to the post/thread.

I don't know if small payments will make a big difference. These large banks are all just trying to limit their exposure to risk (because they over exposed themselves in other places and some how this is their customer's fault) and it's likely going to happened regardless of how the balance is paid. I've been lucky so far as I've paid ~$40K to CC for various reasons/purchases and have a zero balance on all but haven't had any CLDs.
