Possibly interviewed by USA Today for my Amex probs

Hello all,

 

Last year I went on a letter writin', emailing campaign - about my issues with Amex and how the CLD war has messed with my Fico.  I was contacted yesterday and asked if I would allow an interview from USA Today, who are doing a story on how the credit crunch is affecting our lives.

 

I will be SO EXCITED to share my story with them.  I hope it happens!!

I will keep you all posted, I hope they choose me - they took my ph# and I'm not sure when I'll find out if they are going to do the interview... I reported them to a consumer advocacy group who was contacted by USA Today.  It feels great just to get heard.

OOOOOH!!!!  :smileyvery-happy:  I just got off the phone with my preliminary interview!! Wow did that feel good.  It was like unloading on a therapist.  weeeee!!!  They seem to think my story is exactly what they're looking for.  I will be getting some notes on the chat and then they will forward along to USAT.

If they do a full interview don't forget to mention the actions of EX. Give them heck! Congrats, this is very cool.
