Not saying blacklists are evil or unjustified, it would be good to have a list of CCCs that blacklist.
1. American Express: We all know they do and even AmEx acknowledges the fact that if you have ever caused AmEx a financial loss -- even as AU on an account where the principal cardholder did -- you are blacklisted for life or until you make good on the loss.
2. CrapOne: Although it is claimed that they do not, the fact is that they do.
3. HSBC: So, apparently, does HSBC. I have just seen a letter declining an application based on "HSBC Payment History" which seems to refer to a charged-off 1990 CompUSA account.
I’m not sure there are absolutes. Ex., a friend burned amex about 10 yrs ago, never paid it off, + was able to get an amex. I (who also burned amex @ around the same time, for a SMALLER amount) cannot as amex still remembers me. I’ve read about/know others who have been able to get back in w/amex W/O paying the ccs off.
Capital one- burned them 2x. never paid it off. Now have 2 new cap 1 ccs. When I applied, the chargeoffs were OFF my reports for about 2-3 years. Have received 2 CLIs each on the new cap 1 ccs.
Hsbc- burned them 4x. was able to obtain 2 orchards + a best buy reward zone mc with the old hsbc chargeoffs (2 of them anyway) STILL on my reports. However, I’m apparently blacklisted from CLIs as I’ve only gotten 1 $200 cli in nearly 3 years of having the new orchards (1 is now closed).
Supposedly citi blacklists, but I know people who have gotten back in w/them W/O paying the ccs off.
CAPITAL ONE, SURE? Maybe....
After Closing an account some time ago, there is not CLI any more, or mail Offer from CAP1
