Should I close unused account
Per my report I have a credit card with a very large credit line. It has not been used since 2005 and honestly I don't even know what card it is (report just says chase). Should I close this account or will that impact my utilization too much? If I should close how do I even go about tracking it down?

It is to your advantage to keep it open. It adds to your available credit, increases your average length of credit history, and reduces your utilization all of which are high factors in your score.
