Help with closing old Future shop Wells fargo credit card

Hi,

I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me with an old credit card from 2004 from Future Shop Wells fargo. I noticed on my credit report today that the account remains open. The balance is 0 and the status is current, however, it is for $2000. I'm wondering where I should call to have the account closed as it is unclear which financial company now owns this account. I'm afraid that they may have been in contact with me, but after I paid off the balance I probably never updated my mailing address and i do not know my account number.

If someone has some tips, or knows how to close the account, I would appreciate your help.

According to the link below, Wells Fargo sold its credit card accounts to Affirm Financial Services in 2012. (Their phone number is displayed on the link below.)

The terms of your account will remain exactly the same.
For those credit card account holders who are insured under FutureGuard1* or Card Care2*, the terms and conditions of the certificate of insurance remain in force and unchanged except for the policyholder which is changing from Wells to Affirm. Further, any claim benefit payments will now be applied to your new account number. If you have any questions regarding your insurance program, please call the insurer(s)* at (800) 309-3988 for FutureGuard and (877) 459-6080 for Card Care.
