credit card confusion...
Two years ago or so I got approved for a credit card with a spending limit of $200 since it was a small amount I didn't think it would do any damage. Unfortunately I ended up missing a couple of payments and now its on my credit. My confusion to all this is I paid everything I owed and I asked to close the account, but for some reason it comes up as active just with a $0 spending limit...? It's the only credit card I've had so I'm not sure what I should do. I'm trying to get a car and I'm sure that's not gonna be possible any time soon considering I have only had a credit history of 2 years. I just need help understand what I should do. If any one can help with any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.
