Chase Reducing Cash Advance Limit to 20% of CL

[ Edited ]

     In case you hadn't noticed, Chase appears to be reducing cash advance limits on some credit cards to 20% of the total credit limit.  I have an Airtran Visa that was sold by Barclays to Chase last year.  Chase just dropped my Cash Advance Limit by 50% without  any prior notice:


Thank You Chase:

 I noticed in the online system that my available cash advance line was reduced from $1,876 to $983 over the past week.

Can you please explain what is going on ?
