Bill Me Later app declined for not being able to verify info?

I just tried to app for Bill Me Later and they came back with a "unable to authorize" because of my address, bday, or other personal information not matching my credit report? I checked everything 3 times. Checked my latest report from 2 weeks ago and didn't see any errors. 

 

EQ Fico is 740 with no baddies and 1 inq in the last 12 months. Any one have any idea about this? I called BML and they couldn't even find my application in their system. 

 

Also, I tried the transaction twice and am worried about 2 dings now. :smileysad:

Do you have a fraud alert on your file? Regardless I would call them and recon you should be approved no problem.

No fraud alert that I know of. They said I was supposed to receive an email with more details but have yet to receive it. Does BML have recon?

I was actually interested in the hidden TL for going "long" on a big purchase without blowing my util. If it falls through I will indeed go to my trusty Sapphire.

Anytime I have ever tried to Apply for a Bill Me Later account in the last 3 years it has ALWAYS given me that exact same error. I never get a hard pull from them either. I guess there are just certain people they don't want and we are two of them. lol

In the garden until 06/2014!!
