Re: oh uh i poked the bear(BARCLAYS)

My streak of 5 for 5 pales in comparison to your 15 new accounts.  Colour me impressed but be careful.  Don't get into trouble with that many new accounts.

Re: oh uh i poked the bear(BARCLAYS)

That's crazy! I can't believe some companys do that! It's not like they only have a few hundred people with their cards, they have MANY thousands and they monitor stuff like that.

Re: oh uh i poked the bear(BARCLAYS)

I dont blame Barclay in this instance.  15 new accounts is a lot of new credit in a relatively short amount of time.  At least they called him and gave him a warning.  Let it serve as a reminder to build slowly and lay a strong foundation.
