I think at the very least you should call them and make sure to close the account (assuming you don't want the cards). I was in a similar situation a while back. In my case, my wife got pressured over the phone and they sent out cards. I saw the cards in the mail, thought it was odd, cut 'em up, and forgot about them. Even though I never activated the cards, the account was on my credit report as opened. Good thing they send those checks at Christmas or I would have never realized it.
