Amex recon help!!! PLEASE

Hi, I'm new here, I need someone that can send me a American Express email address for a VP or someone that is in the position of approve a card. My story is bankruptcy 8 years ago, included Costco Amex for $900, I know they have put me in black list, because I dis applied for their green card and was denied for previously canceling an account. Right now my score is 670, per Amex letter of denial. It does 't matter if I need to pay the previous balance, I just want to reestablish mi relatio ship sith them but for that to happen, I need a very good contact. Can someone send me the info please. Thanks and God bless!

Good luck! Let us know how it goes! I was barely approved for a Chase Freedom after recon and my Ch 7 is 9 yrs, 4 mos old. I didn't include Chase in BK and never did business with them before! Chase and AMEX and CITI just aren't BK friendly. I applying for AMEX in April 2014, 6 months after my BK is deleted.

Re: Amex recon help!!! PLEASE

It may not matter that you included Amex in your BK 9 years ago, as there seems to be some forgiveness with getting off the Amex Blacklist as of  lately......

However...

Amex will not approve applicants with a BK reporting even if it is 9 years, and 364 days since discharge.  Once it is removed from your credit report is when you will be approvable with Amex - if you are one of the one's who made it off of the blacklist.

Filed BK 7: 2/28/2012 | Discharged: 7/24/2012
POST BK APPROVALS:
NFCU nRewards Secured Visa: $1000 7/12| Apple FCU Secured Visa: $1000 9/12
Toyota Finance Lease: 0% | 0.0008 MF 10/12
Barclay Apple Finance Visa: $2200 1/13
NFCU cashRewards Visa: $2500 3/13

There are people on here who have gotten an AMEX with a BK reporting. They tend to approve when your BK is eight years old or older. This is just one example

BK in 2008

Barclay's Apple Financing Card ($10,000) --- Capital One Quicksilver ($13,000)--- Gold Delta Skymiles ($15,000) --- GEMB CareCredit ($5700) --- AUFCU ($10000)--- Walmart ($5000)--- Discover IT ($21,000)

I'm not sure about how to get off their blacklist, but I do know that they will approve with a bankruptcy still on your credit report (Chap 7 filed 7.5 years ago/did not include them)

I applied for the AMEX Blue cash preferred card and was instantly denied due to the reason Bankruptcy. I called the new card customer service line and had them send my experian report for a manual review. WIthin 5 days I was approved with a 10K limit. Good luck.

I just was approved for an amex this month with an eight year bankruptcy reporting. AMEC considers other factors like credit score, credit history, previous other loans, and many others.
