Was at a concert w/ friends and called Amex to ask them how much I could get from the ATM.
At first everything seemed routine. I verified info but before even looking at the ATM thing she suddenly started asking a multiplicity of questions about my transactions, work, finances, etc. I got the impression she had my credit report in front of her, and they were waiting on my call.
She was generally like "I'm concerned with these transactions (PayPal) because we want to make sure that if you're getting cash it's happening with your pin number." It was $370ish payment for eBay. She was incredibly confident and cocky about it. Once I realized she wasn't Tier 1 I quickly humbled myself lol.
Anyway, I offered to process a payment but she said it wasn't necessary, Also told her nevermind about the ATM but she said I should go ahead if I wanted to This leads me to believe it's more of a MS concern?
But if so why so many questions about work, life, etc. I'm sure this has happened to others before. Is this the Financial Review I keep reading about?
