Your credit report has two creditors with the same credit card number?

usually this is because the original lender sold the account to a new lender which takes on the loan/debt, but the paper trail is still left on a persons credit report. If a company goes out of business they also liquidate their assets/accounts to another creditor. It also can be because the person did not pay on the account and it was sold to another creditor or a collection company. The most rare case would be that there is a mistake on a persons credit file and should contact the credit report company.
