Amex INQ not on any CRs

Hi - applied for an Amex Zync 2 weeks ago and was rejected. 

Was curious to know which CR Amex used and I pulled reports for TU, EQ from myfico and a report directly from Experian and to my surprise none of them show the inq.

Which CR normally Amex pulls from? and why it is not showing?

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Amex INQ not on any CRs

Not showing means two thing,

 

* As an existing AMEX cardmember, denial only means SP, OR

* Denial means you are blacklisted. This means in the past you have burned AMEX and AMEX will never do business with you again.

Re: Amex INQ not on any CRs

Amex typically pulls Experian. Since the Zync is one of the easiest amex approvals, my guess is you do not have another Amex card. Therefore, you are probably blacklisted in their systems.

In my wallet: Amex PRG & Zync, Amex BCE (19.2k), Chase Freedom (5k), PSECU Visa/PSL (20k)
Current Scores: Equifax: 738 (Fako) TransUnion: 721 (Fico) Experian: 717 (Fico)

Was your application rejected or denied?  If it was rejected I would call them and find out why. If it was denied you should get a letter in the mail or an email from them about your denied application.  It does not hurt to try.   Oh and btw they pull EX.

Re: Amex INQ not on any CRs

Thanks for all of your replies; I used to have Amex but I included it in bk 7 yrs ago...

So once you are blacklisted it looks like you can never get another account  with Amex Smiley Sad

Re: Amex INQ not on any CRs

Never say never, but you are currently blacklisted for including them in your BK. How much debt did you have with them when you BK'd the account? If it was a large amount I would say your hopes are fairly low at this point, if it was lower possibly a better chance down the road. Of course everyone is a different situation...

Re: Amex INQ not on any CRs

Cannot recall to be honest but I know it was not a huge amount. I wanted to pay them off but my bk lawyer advised me against it. 

A day after I was denied, Amex sent me an email recommending the pre paid card.... I am hoping that is a good sign. I applied for it and loaded it up; will see if it helps.

Re: Amex INQ not on any CRs

If you pay them what you owe them (which IMO if you want their card you should definitely pay it off its the right thing to do) they may consider you again. I would call and speak to a rep and see if that's possible.

+1000, although you included them in Bk, the right thing to do is go back an pay them what you owe them. They took a chance on you when they gave you their card so you'll want to rectify the situation between you an Amex, if you want back in with them. it shouldn't be that hard if your pretty sure it wasn't a large sum of money. Most of the members here that have gotten back in with Amex after burning them have went back and paid. it is possible. Good luck to you!
