Credit Card Center Advertiser Disclosure†
09-26-2012 09:51 AM
I have the backdoor number, but no lunch break today. Are they open after 5p? And also, is there anything I should be prepared to give them as far as extra info etc?
I had a fraud alert on my account last year due to a data breach, but I think it's gone away now. Not sure what else it could be, other than my non-rockin' 687 credit score. Still, I have 100k+ income, 80K in retirement/savings, and 0 CC debt on my 5 open accounts. Oldest card is almost 10 yrs., youngest is about 7. Thoughts?

Oh and, any idea how long these calls usually take? Are we talking 30 mins - 1 hour or is it not that bad? Have a jammed day, but would like to figure it out if possible so I know whether to wait on buying my plane tickets.

First, have you checked your app status again on line? Most "further review" with Amex convert within hours. Or are you saying they asked you to call? Mine took about 4 hours to go from under review to approved on the application status site. Might be worth checking before you call.

I got that message yesterday and immediately went to the app status page where it showed approved. I would check there first or again if you have already.
