It might be free to you but I would be paying for it and that would make me angry...

Which ones, webhopper?  The one about lying on the Amex credit app, or the one about reselling synthetic marijuana (conveniently edited out two minutes after I posted in message 20.)

 

Let's let this kid go to sleep, he's got classes in the morning, and I'm sure his friends are tired, too.

I don't understand.

Kid lied on his app about his income. It's a company doing it's due diligence.

+1   I'm thinking it's a good thing that they're stepping in.  Maybe it will help stop you from doing something that's going to get you into quite a bit of trouble.  I'm sure you've heard the saying of what happens when you play with fire.  Put down the matches!

Re: Being asked by Amex for tax return?

I'm pretty sure some retailers outlaw in their corporate policies the resell of their products at a profit....

Even if that's not the case, lying to obtain credit is fraud, and you should never do that.

Sorry to hear Amex is closing you down, but you have to play by the rules... Cheatint is unacceptable, UNLESS you're Mitt Romney, but this isn't a political/business forum
Hahhahaah

There is a lawsuit going on now with a guy names Supap Kirtsaeng from Thailand and John Wiley and Sons, a text book company. He was buying the books in Thailand and selling them in the United States for a very nice profit. I do not think there are any laws against this, but some places do say that the goods are only to be distributed within the country they were purchased.

 

Anyway, I went through this same thing but did supply returns. They did not match stated income because income changed this year. The lady said that is fine since situations changed and the cards were opened back up to what they were. I did the same as you with charging a few thousand all of a sudden, but it was on a business card. I was under the impression with a business card they would understand that kind of spending, but I guess not.
