After contacting the EO for Barclays the extremely polite assistant was extremely concered regarding what happened. After explaining what happen twice he then placed me on a brief hold and came back onto the line and asked "since approval with Barclays have you applied to any other cards or recieved significant CLI?" I said no. He then ask for all the documents I have already submitted (financial statments) and he placed me on hold for approximately 5 minutes came back on the line and advised he needed to get back to me. Sure enough about 2 hours later he called back and said he could not find any reason after manual review of approval to then be denied he commented on my knowledge of reconsideration...He advised due to too many inq the application should have never been turned over. I said well I now have two inq for one app on my cr + a new account showing. He said I understand your position and after manual review with his team they concluded for all the trouble and ability to provide financial statements in such short period of time indicated a high level of responsibility and everything on my credit report is on track. They we able to approve me for $8,500.00!! my first barclays card and highest limit so far!
