AMEX so many soft pulls, why ??

I have not had an AMEX since 1995, it was a gold card and charged off about 7k, bad spot in my life.

Why I am getting so many inquires from AMEX.  Last night I put a freeze on Experian.

 

Should I be worried they will be back after me for a charge off from 17 years ago ?

 

Thank you

Re: AMEX so many soft pulls, why ??

Not so sure they can come after you since that's way past the SOL, but they can still bug you for the rest of eternity of they wanted to.  Either way, considering they've been SPing you for so long, I highly doubt you'll ever be able to get back in the doors with AMEX again.

When a debt is past SOL, that means they cannot use lawsuit or judgement to make you pay. Other than that they can still try to collect debt.

Re: AMEX so many soft pulls, why ??

even with a freeze they can still SP you because you have done business with them. SP's do not show up to other lenders so do not worry about it. everytime yoy pull your own report its a SP. if you use 3 diffrent sites that pull your 3 reports you could see 3 per day per report for a total of 1095 per year per report or a total of 3285 for all three. do not worry about SP's amex and all my cards SP me every month when the bill cuts.

Re: AMEX so many soft pulls, why ??

yeah! Idk if you read this thread... But there was one about a guy having a co from Amex like ten years ago. He got approved for the Amex BCE (as afbar says, I bet you can too with those scores) But then when he went to ask for a cli, he got denied due to that co account, which was still in Amex's files Haha!! Hope that makes sense.

This is only true with Experian. With Equifax and Transunion; there's a limit(an exact number actually) to how many soft pulls, your file can hold.

Chase Southwest $5000 - November 2012 Wal Mart $1000 - November 2012 NFCU Visa $5,000 - Sept 2012 NFCU NavCheck $3,000 - October 2012 Amazon $900 - Aug 2012 Kay's Jewlery $2700 - Aug 2012 Buckle $250 (Shopping cart trick) - October 2012 Roaman's $250 (Shopping cart trick) - October 2012 Capital One Secured $225 - April 2012 Capital One Platinum $2500 - July 2012

 Actually a limit to total pulls (HP+SP) a file can hold.
