Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You need to contact the credit card company at the address listed on their statement to cancel the card. If they do not provide a fax number on their statement, you have to mail them the letter canceling the card. It needs to contain the account number, your name and contact information and a statement that you wish to close the account and cancel the card. You can also do this with almost every credit card company over the phone through their customer service line.
