QB Issue Resolution:

A negative credit card balance means they owe you, so using your numbers


they owe you -4,000

You charge 1,500


math:  -4,000 + 1,500 = -2,500


now they owe you 2,500

QB is doing the math correct, your opening balance as a negative is wrong.  Check the opening balance entry, it should show in the account register in the increase column (a credit in a journal entry)
