They just posted an old closed account from 1980 or so, as far as I can see it was closed with $1k balance but no lates listed and it simply says 'closed due to inactivity'.
I'd love to see if i can re-instate it if it has a balance by paying and if it doesn't by requesting. I *think* the account gave me a 16 point bump (a few days after I got the bump, Credit Alert said the only two items that day were a balance increase and an open card reporting as lost (true) which lowered avail credit a bit) and I'd imagine as an OPEN 28 year old account I'd be golden...
Thanks, so two questions on Amex;
1) Whom do they pull in NYC?
2) Can you verify before activiation/application that they will do so (re-age)?
3) Since they do income verification/etc. if I explain I am going back to work after 3 year hiatus (sick dad) will they take that into account?
I don't really care about CL, or if it is charge, I just want the 25 year account...
