Amex FR dodged...;phew....

Was shopping in another town I never go to and a fraud alert occured at on my Amex card. got a popup notice on my smartphone.

 

Got a very polite rep on the line, she asked to update some information in my account, then came narrowly close to initiating an FR, but then decided against it. I was literally panicking in my parked car. haha.

 

I don't know why, but I'm still a little shaken up by it.

 

phew.....

Re: Amex FR dodged...;phew....

I dont see the fear in these, unless there were lies on the application. but i could be wrong?????? I suppose the fear could be lowering CL?

Re: Amex FR dodged...;phew....

I guess I would pass an FR actually. My tax history would support my applications. I suppose my fear and anxiety is irrational, but doesn't stop me from being worried.

Re: Amex FR dodged...;phew....

I hear ya...i believe they freeze your account while its being reviewed and that would be really annoying. well, take a deep breath and go swipe your AMEX ha

Re: Amex FR dodged...;phew....

the most chilling thing that I learned is that know exactly each item in a purchase you bought when you go shopping, not just the summary totals.

Re: Amex FR dodged...;phew....

congrats but how does a fraud alert turn into a FR? just curious.. as for the line item detail it depens on the merchants system its known as level 3 processing, not every system supports it, its typically used for business that issue employees  pcards and in govt agencies. the customer's company uses it for spend analysis
