Over the limit credit card vs. closed account
I have a credit card account that was closed by the grantor. It is currently over the limit, but I have the option to have the account reinstated since I have been making timely payments for about 2 years. The question I have is does anyone know if its more damaging to my credit score to have a closed credit card or an open account that is over the limit?
