No Credit Limit Reporting

I have 2 Capital One cards and they both report, on all three credit reports, either credit limit not available or not reported.  The total credit limit between the two cards is $3500.  Would this effect my credit score?

Yes, even more so if you carry a balance on the card. It will report as 100% UTL.

Re: No Credit Limit Reporting

I called Capital One to fax me a letter that states the credit limit so that I may submit it to the credit bureaus.  One has a $3000 limit that has a balance of 1500 and the other one has a credit limit of only $500 and the balance is $0.  Do you think this will hurt or help my score?

Re: No Credit Limit Reporting

They way I understand it is the CRA will use your high balance as your CL. If you have never charged more than 1500 on the one card you are at 100% UTL -- Very Bad. Having the Cl reported right will lower your UTL --- Good thing.
 
I have read here that Cap 1 will start reporting CL soon.
 
It should be good for your score to have correct Cl reported.
 
Hope this makes sence (or cents) ? ---cool play on words huh?:smileyvery-happy:
