Re: Pay charged off AMEX?

I know I'm late but I was blacklisted from a 2002 unpaid charge off I applied for a BCE back in November and was denied. Denial letter said "reason for denial-American Express previously closed your account". It was also a hard pull.

Ouch!  That sucks!

 

Every time my brother applied they shot him down with the same reason, but always without a hard pull.  Then he applied in December and approved after ID verification.

Amex certainly does "forgive" bad debts, but just not sure how they decide whom or what amount to forgive.  On the other hand, for some are still on the list after 30 years over a relatively small charge off of $650.

There seems to be a lot of forgiving going on these days.  I am thinking that getting smacked over the head by the CFPB et. al. lately has triggered something at AmEx.

 

I know they didn't use loss amount in my brother's case.  Their loss was over $150k so you would think that would be the last person in the world to forgive.

Re: Pay charged off AMEX?

You sure you want the Delta card? It's probably one of the worst programs out there. If you live next to a Suntrust you can get a Delta Skymiles World Master card DEBIT which pretty much does the same or more, unless free checked in bags for upto 9 people is your primarly want for the card. 

 

Delta Skymiles redemptions are awful, Never found 1 single award flight that was for a decent rate. United however I never have issues finding awards for the flights I want. Delta Skymiles are valued at 1.22 cents the frequent flyer sites, and United is 3 to 9 cents depending on how you redeem it. For instance 140,000 points can get you a saver first class award to Asia. In the summer that can cost $12,000+ 


total credit limits $108,400 Credit scores Ex 728 EQ 738 TU 758

He didn't use it.

 

It was a case of identity theft, but AmEx wouldn't accept that.  Even though the ID thief was arrested, convicted and made complete restitution AmEx had my borhter blacklisted for over 20 years.  Go figure.
