PenFed Credit


Re: PenFed Credit

I'm currently 5 months post chp7 discharge and was able to gain a membersip with Penfed. The only reason I applied for a Promise VISA and personal LOC is because of the success stories I've seen on these forums. However, I was denied for both products. One stated utilization of accounts, too many new accounts, and/or derogatoty record as reasons for denial, and the other simply stated bankruptcy. When I called and inquired about the decision, the representative said they flat out deny everyone who isn't at least 2 years discharged. He even verified this with a loan officier. I still emailed a recon and got this response back today
