Mispelled Name on CC
I recently received a CC from CareCredit which has my correct address but miss spelled my last name. I will not activate the card as it has a 26.99% interest rate. My question is will this card be reflected on my credit score, even though it is issued in the wrong name? I also intend to call to cancel the card shortly. Thanks and please advise.
