identity theft and closing credit accounts
I fear identity theft and I want to close all the store cards I opened to save money on big purchases.  I wish only to keep my visa.  I heard on TV that closing credit accounts, even if you rarely use them and they have no balance, can hurt your FICO score.  Any advice on how to achieve this without hurting your FICO score?
