American Express Complaint - Request for Tax Return
I have been an AMEX gold card member for about 2 yrs now with an 810 credit score and apparently due to my Christmas chopping they are requesting my tax returns to verify my income to see if I am credit worthy to have their credit cards! OH MY GOD! I was really furious absolutely appalled by this! I thought that the existence of my credit file was what credit cards company took into consideration before giving me a card! I am so not releasing that info to them and they say they are going to cancel my card. I spoke to this rude Hispanic guy with the worst accent ever and I could barely understand what he was saying. He pretty much went down the list telling me that with all my recent purchases, and he read one by one in a sarcastic way, telling me that my income level didn’t match the amount of expense I had. My bill is due on the 5th of January and I paid in full today ($5,000) and I am just going to wait for them to make a decision. Aside for the exorbitant 150 annual fee they still want super sensitive info from me. My friends and family warned me about this card but I thought it would be a good card to have but I am sure going to tell AMEX TO SUCK IT!
