There are two things you should do. First, dispute the information with the credit reporting agency (you may have to dispute it with all three -- Experiean, TransUnion and Equifax -- if it appears on all three reports). This compells them legally to conduct an investigation and prove the information they show is correct.
However, it's been said that those investigations are mostly for show, so you need to contact the institution through which you had the credit card and ask for a letter stating the account is paid off and closed. You can then submit a copy of that letter to the credit agencies. After that, they must legally amend the information, pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Be sure to keep the orignal letter from the credit card company, as the bad information may show up again and you may have to resubmit the proof of payment to the credit agencies.
Checking your credit history allows you to make credit reports and check credit scores which are crucial for getting loans. It is also important to check that your account is not being used wrongfully.

Yes, you can request your issuing credit card company or bank to reopen your credit card that you closed. I did that with one of my credit cards. However, make sure that you had a good record on that particular closed account and that you check if all the balances have been paid before you closed the account in order not to ruin your credit history.
A credit card account comes with a credit card, which can be used to authorize purchases of any value. The checking account does not come with a credit card and is used for issuing checks.
Your credit history is what is important. If you are overdrawn or have been over drawn many times and the bank is charging you penalties it will hurt your chances of getting a credit card. If you have a credit line that protects your checking account like I do you just start drawing on that and it won't hurt your credit report.
Credit scores have nothing to do with checking accounts. Unless you've had major overdraft issues with a previous checking account you will have no problems opening a new one.
It's all part of your credit history..the good the bad and the ugly. I longer history is generally good.

Checking accounts are not normally reflected on a credit report.
No, a checking account is not correlated to your credit score. The only reason why you have to give your social security # is to prove that you have no outstanding debt with any other banks. ______________________________________ Actually, there is a correlation. Having a checking account doesn't improve your credit score, but you can be accepted or denied an account based on it. If you have bad credit, or no credit, you may be denied from a variety of bank checking accounts. I was told by my lawyer it does improve your credit if you keep your checking account in good standings he said the bank report it monthly to the crdit bureaus thats just what i was told

Since banks rely so heavily on a borrower�s credit score, it is important that you check your credit history report on at least a semi-annual basis. � When checking your credit history report there are several thing that you should look out for.� One of the most important is to ensure that all of the accounts opened are legitimate.� While it is possible that an account could have been added to your report erroneously, there is a chance that the account could be a sign that someone stole your identity.� Because of this you should call the creditor immediately to have the account closed.�
There is a way to earn interest on a checking accounts and can be added to the account. You will have to back through a credit union.
Yes. However, if your account was closed due to a negative balance that you failed to repay, you might have some difficulty. Banks report these "charge-offs" to credit reporting agencies other than those used to verify credit for a loan. If a bank, during their account opening process, sees that you have caused another bank a loss on a checking account, they most likely will not open a new checking account for you. The best remedy is to pay the bank that is reporting the loss and start the process over. Good luck!
You can't MAKE a credit card company reopen an account. You can call the credit bureau and request that they change the status to indicate that is was closed by you and not the credit grantor. Or, you can simply put a notation in your credit report stating that the account was closed by you and not the card company.
Yes. Creditors report to the credit reporting agencies the terms under which an account is closed. It looks bad and is a slightly more derogatory status when an account is closed by the lender vs. closed by the customer.
If you are opening a savings or checking account, the bank doesn't care about your credit because you won't be able to do anything unless you put money into the account. If you're applying for a credit account, of course they are going to look at your credit history to see if you will be likely to pay them back for what they loan you.
Not usually. Unless it includes NSF charges. It may affect the terms and charges though, for period of time. Actually, I was turned down for a checking account at Bank of America because my credit was poor, so that is not true. It can effect you getting a checking account. It just depends where. I have to go to a credit union to get an account.
