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. Smiley Happy Did you ever find out what happened to the card? Can you still ask Amex to send you a replacement card?
