i recently paid off one of my cards. i'm interested in lowering my credit limit so i'm not as tempted to useit. will a cc co. do this if i request it? has anyone requested this of a co before?

I've done it several times with no problems. If they ask why, I just tell them the truth.

Appears to have had no adverse affect on my credit
