Any time you are an authorized user on an account, that account (and all it's associated payments) show up on your credit report.  This can be done without your knowledge.  If you don't want this, just call the credit provider and tell them you no longer want to be an authorized user.  It should be removed after a month or two.  If it still shows up on your credit report, then write the credit bureaus and tell them it is not your account.
