I spoke with AE and they confirmed that the card wasn't directly theirs by the first 5 numbers on the card. They explained that the card was issued by a company for the use by employees.
So here I sit with a card with a $20,000 limit that I can't use or get off my report.
Why should there be a card number from a company that is gone, so weird.
That card must have been re-issued during the past decade so this could be an issue.
Report the card stolen/lost and you don't want a replacement.
