Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

.

I am a little confused by your comments..

.

Are you saying that Discover increased your credit line, but you didn't actually buy more things so as to increase your debt?

.

If so, how did the debt increase from $5K to $20K?

.

Or are you saying that they shouldn't have increased your credit limit because you then used it up?

.

.

thanks
