Closed by gurantor?

[ Edited ]
BofA closed an account I havd open and current for 5 months without notice. When I tried to use it it was declined. I called BofA they said "Oh... you were not eligable in the first place for the card" So they closed the account and reported it as Closed by gurantor on my credit report. How will this look to lenders and will this change my FICO?

That wasn't very nice of them!
Your score may take a hit initally. I wouldn't worry too much as the account was only 5 months old.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
