    Lowell have bought one of your old credit cards. When you can see the entry you should be able to work out which it is because it should have the same default date.

    JPMC is a new one on me. Not a new Chase account, is it?

    Found this thread as I got an email from ClearScore this morning saying that a new account was being added - thought it'd be the Barclays I just opened for the switch offer but no it's Chase. The account number I didn't recognise at first, but it seems they put it in Equifax's system backwards compared to most banks - 8407 is the last 4 digits of the sort code, 60-84-07, which I believe is common to all Chase users.
    As it says in the report I've had my Chase since May 2023, it seems they have just decided to start reporting them to credit reference agencies. Perhaps in anticipation of the launch of overdrafts or the oft-awaited credit card? 
    (One thing I'm curious on, will they be reporting the additional current accounts as seperate entries, which many use as switch mules? I can't see any in the closed section but I don't have any open right now, have some excess accounts with other banks I want to get rid of first.)

    So if you have an account with Chase then I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yep, the JPMC entry will be your Chase account.
    "JP Morgan Chase" is the "owning" (if that's the right word?) company.  "Chase" is their retail banking/credit card brand.
    I'm guessing that since it's only relatively recently that they've started to operate in the UK, it's takes a while to get everything set up, approved and regulated before they start reporting in to the UK CRAs?
    (Well, obviously they would have had to get regulatory approval before they could start offering banking services here, but I've no idea if they have to go through a separate approval process in order to report to the CRAs).
