American Express. They certainly don't use FICO.
This surprises me. Was there something posted on this? I guess I am asking if you have any evidence for this statement?

I recentlyapplied and recieve an AMEX card. I was initially denied, and told the CSR I have high fico scores. She said AMEX doesn't use FICO score. They use Risk scores. The Risk score is from Experian. The report they pull more than often and for any type of product is from Experian.

Amex uses its own scoring model.
