That's a good question. I called him after recieving written notification that I had been declined. That notification included the invitation to call for an explanation.

It gets better...

After I complained about having spent my money to get a report to correct their error the previously smug lazy moron had the woman who made the original error mail a shopping mall gift certificate to me for the cost of the credit report along with a letter of apology. I felt compelled to write to the woman thanking her and saying that I understood that the far greater fault was with the jerk who "explained" why I was declined.

Anyway, now I have a credit card (with a credit limit much higher that I requested) that I never use and don't really want. I did get the $50.00 sign up bonus though. It wasn't worth it, and I don't think I'll do it again.

This sounds like it belongs in the customer service thread.

Details are somewhere on the Fatwallet site amidst the advice on how to stiff the card companies with your debt when you die. Is this a great country or what!

So there you go. profit with your high score - if you care to or dare.
Yeah, that's why they changed the way it's scored.
