Re: American Express

Hi,

 

Internal scoring system?  Do you mean that they might base it approval, or denial on what they physically see in the report?  as well as the FICO ?

 

Thank you

Re: American Express

I doubt that they will physically look at your report unless you end up requesting a recon. The data fields will be run through the Amex algorithm as well as Fico's to come up with an approval or decline.

Re: American Express

Almost every CCC has some sort of internal score algorithm, where they evaluate what's on your report. So some won't touch you with a BK, others if you have too many lates, etc., regardless of your FICO scores.

If there are any banks left that loan solely on the basis of FICO's, they're fools.

Re: American Express

AMEX usually pull EX and to get approve your score must be over 700. I was approved for an account with a score of 743 at the time I applied..
