On my credit report, an entry appears for "MCDUFF/CBUSA NA".

Now, I've figured out what it is--it's a credit card I had ten years ago with the defunct Computer City. My guess is that their credit card accounts have been purchased and repurchased by other companies since then.

Searching here and on the web, I've seen quite a few people posting to various forums, asking "what is this 'xxxx/CBUSA' that appears on my credit report?" Unfortunately, I've yet to find a good reply.

So, I'm asking here: What is CBUSA, and how can I contact them to close this zombie account? (Or should I?)
