Should an acount not in my name affect my score?
I work for my parents business and they gave me a credit card with my name on it, but it is a business account, not my own. Should this card's account affect my credit? Because on this site, it is affecting my credit score and my parents were told by the credit card company it wouldn't. I want to know if I need to cancel the card.
