What happens to my credit score if I cancel an accidental credit card approval?
I accidentally applied for a Walmart credit card, and I actually don't want the credit card. Walmart customer service suggested to wait for the credit card to arrive in the mail, then cancel it. Will canceling an unused credit card decrease for my credit score? Who would I call to make sure that my credit score is not affected after this mistake? What are the extra steps I must take to reverse this?
