But we have twice in the last 3 years received letters from AMEX saying that they have changed the address to our other house and are just letting us know. It takes a phone call to say - "No, you idiots, don't do that!
I had a similar situation like that several years ago when I had a bank account or two registered under my mothers address still. American Express automatically changed my address to her's even though I hadn't lived there is years. When this is done it is actually a fraud risk because who's to say that second address on your file, my mother's in my situation and your second house in yours, is even correct or up to date? Obviously if you have your account under a specified address that is where you want your bill and notifications sent, not some other address they take the liberty of deciding to be your main place of residence.
