The same thing happened to me; wanted me to take proof of identity and address into the branch. I told the CSR who called me, "I better not do all of this and then not get approved" and her response was, "If they are asking for all of this info, they are more than likely wanting to approve you." Which, they did. Sucks you had to drive two hours though...

The crazy thing; I got back with them recently and was approved after one day on each my nRewards secured and Cash rewards unsecured. My EQ was 594 and TU was 595.. I was denied navChek because of "Bankruptcy too recent, not enough credit experience".. I will re apply in 2014!! Smiley Very Happy when should I ask for a increase? hehe



goodluck! you will approved with your scores.
