Card issued with wrong name, in the past?
Several years ago a credit card was issued to me with the wrong last name. I didn't use the card, because of the name issue. The account reported for about 2 years with 0% utilization with a small limit, and then was closed. My credit reports now list the alternate last name (also known as). Does this affect my score? I have past derogatroty marks (doing better the past few years). Would I be better asking for the account be removed or to just let it be?
