So I did a cash advance for $100 on my Amex and no more activity beyond that, as it was just a 1 day trip and friends paid for everything else.
Sorry you're going through this again, but your post and many others on here have convinced me that Amex is simply not worth it. I would be highly upset if they asked me for tax forms, etc. That's going way too freakin far in my book!

What's even worse is that you have been around here long enough to know better!

Amex thinks EVERYTHING is a risk, or atleast they claim it to be so they can justify their absurd F/R's. After what I have read on this forum, I will NEVER apply for an Amex card, I don't care if they give 50% back in rewards.
