When you OPENED the account is not relevant. The date of first delinquency determines the start of the reporting period and that date cannot be changed by anyone. The re-selling of a debt does NOT restart the reporting period.

You can close a credit card account at any time, regardles of whether there's a balance left on the account. If it's not past due, you simply make regular monthly payments. If it's delinquent and the creditor hasn't already closed the account for you, you'll probably also make monthly payments on the balance. In some cases of severely delinquent accounts, you can agree to pay one final lump sum, usually less than the total amount owed. However, this will appear unfavorably on your credit reports, as will "account closed by credit grantor". Regardless, it's probably a good idea to close the account, particularly if it's delinquent.

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.
