I see in my credit history an account that dates back to 1992 and was paid satisfactorily, with a credit limit of 20k. In 1992 I was 6 years old...this obviously isn't my account. What do I do? It doesn't look like this account is hurting my score, if anything, helping it. Do I just ignore it?
Were you ever an Authorized user on your parents account? I have an account that says 1990 on my record even though I was only 8 at the time that is from my Mom's account. I was added to her card at 16 to have for emergencies but it reports as if I had it since 1990 though it does say Authorized user.
