What to Do if Your Credit Card Limits Are Lowered (& How to Avoid Closure)





Credit card companies are closing accounts and cutting limits - you can try to avoid this by using any credit cards that you've left inactive and if they DO decrease your limit, get on the phone with them immediately. Most of the time they will reverse or partially raise your limits again. What you want to understand is that the available credit is the 2nd most important when it comes to your credit score. This means that if the creditor lowers your limit from $2000 to $1000 and you have a balance of $500, your utilization goes from 25% to 50% immediately and your score will reflect this as well.

How to lower your risk: credit sweep to remove negative items and use inactive credit cards to avoid closure and then lastly, to protect yourself: pay down balances to decrease utilization.

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft?

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft? No, it's not. Most consumers have the wrong idea about what a credit sweep is and believe the 2 are the same but I'm here to clear this up for you! Identity theft: This is where you claim that all (or a few) items are resulting from identity theft and you attempt to get them blocked using section 605B of the FCRA within 4 business days. You must use an official police report and affidavit. Here's the DL on this: it doesn't work. Why? Because millions of consumers used this illegally even thought the debts actually belonged to them and now, even if you ARE a victim, it's almost impossible to get it done in 4 business days.
