How will it affect my FICO if I voluntarily close an acct with a balance?
My VISA went up from 8.99% to 29.99% when I went over my limit although my payments have been on time. The card issuer won't reduce the interest rate, so I want to close it but can't afford to pay the balance in full. How will it affect my credit score? Thanks
