5 years ago I had Party A with shot credit as an authorized user on a few of my credit cards and I put my address as Party A's. I have no contact with Party A anymore but recently I am receiving a flood of pre-approved and attractive offers such as 18 months 0% balance transfers etc. from all major credit card companies addressed to Party A's name. I am puzzled about this. Either Party A's credit has greatly improved, or credit card company's credit standards have greatly eased, or they are confusing me with Party A because of the same address. Which one is most likely?

  Party A's credit has improved (could be as simple as some derogatory items fell off of the report)

This.

If Party A stopped using credit, the sins of the past would age away leaving only the good credit from you.
