I just received a credit alert for Equifax saying an acco...

I just received a credit alert for Equifax saying an account has been added to my report. I opened a second Chase account in Feb. and I have been waiting for it to post. When I looked at the alert, I discovered that instead of posting my new account, the reported my original account a second time.
This is an established account in excellent standing. Should i leave it alone? After all, it's their mistake, not mine.

It's inaccurate, but it doesn't harm you. Personally, I'd leave it. Smiley Happy Just remember not to run the utilization on that card up, because now it'll count double.
