Amex reviews my file roughly once a year,  and I've been a member since 1986.  On a more sinister note.  It seems as though Experian somehow notifiies your current creditors that you are applying for new credit.  There are entries by CREDIT COMMUNICATION SVCS that always appear on my EX report that trigger two thirds of my CURRENT creditors to soft my EX report whenever I apply for a new TL.  This NEVER happens with EQ or TU.  :smileymad:  


It's interesting that you said this... I have noticed a seeming "coincidence" that immediately after a new acct reports, there is a soft by Amex on my EX. Amex hadn't softed my EQ and I don't see my TU softs, but they could be there as well. Very "big brother"! :smileyindifferent:

Re: Amex Account Reviews already???

I've been seeing 2 to 3 Amex softs a month on my EX. Sometimes they disappear... I save a PDF every time I pull my CR. So, I can go back and look at last week's pull, for example. I've seen some Amex softs "disapper," and there is a new one with a more recent date on it. So, I think they are softing us more than even we realize!

 

It does concern me, but at least seeing that it's happening with others calms my concerns a bit.
