Re: Removed from American Express Black List?

I tried to call them last year to find out how much do I owe them so that I could pay them right away and get out of blacklist. But they couldn't find me in their system. Tried to apply again last December but still got rejected. Didn't know then what to do

Re: Removed from American Express Black List?

while i'm waiting for the result on my BCE application, i have received this letter from American Express in today's mail, It States

 

" Your application for Amex Green Card was handled incorrectly due to system error. Please call on this number 800-494-4128 within 30-days of receiving this letter."

 

But here is the problem i went on Amex website and that application was denied because " Amex cancelled my previous account"..   Now by applying again would it make any difference??????

Re: Removed from American Express Black List?

Unless they have a big glitch in their system you aren't getting approved until you pay them back.  Amex is a big stickler on getting paid before giving out another card.  If you owe them a considerable amount it's really not worth it as there are many other cards out there with similar benefits.  Unless you need to get approved for a coporate card for your job I'd just move on.  Good luck.
