If you call the credit card company they can identify you and your accounts by providing your social security number. As said, closing accounts will usually hurt your credit, so do some reading on this before proceeding. If you do close accounts, only do one at a time, wait a month or so in between to see how your credit will be affected. And when I say credit, I mean FICO scores, not the scores here.

The number would be on the regular credit reports but closing the accounts will hurt yoiur score, as you would learn from reading the articles here.
