I burned Amex good back in 2008. To my shock, I prequalified for a bunch of their cards on their prequalify site which has never happened before. I applied but was denied. Such a tease! I think when they deny you due to blacklist they don't do a hard pull. Let's hope!
I hope you're going to recon the denial. And keep us posted on whether or not it's a HP. I also burned them in 2008, but I still can't get any prequal offers. I'm tempted to apply since I know it could possible result in no HP if I'm still blacklisted.
Thanks for keeping us updated. Sorry they are still holding the old charge off against you, did you try to recon anyway?
Gotcha! Good luck should you decide to app in the future
