Yes and they do this often. If your score is lower than before, they may up your interest rate. If your score is higher or still the same, they may offer you additional cards, balance transfer offers, etc. This is part of standard credit card terms. Even if the account is closed they can do this. This is how we all get those credit card offers that say pre-approved, etc. It does not affect your credit score. It's a soft inquiry.

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.
