I can't tell if you are serious or not, but no lender will close an account for one month of non use. The shortest I have seen is Barlcays, who says they will close it after three months of no usage. Usually it is a year before they think about closing it.

Legendary. :smileyhappy: Did you ever find out what happened to the card? Can you still ask Amex to send you a replacement card?

I have no idea where the card is now, i did call them and they told me the account was closed due to inactived (  O WELL) . I did get backdated to 2001 on my new AMEX BCP, i got last month.
