Check for a record of the email that you sent them on the Amex website in the communications area or in your sent folder of your email account. You should definitely complain like hell until they rescind the fee and close the account. Tell them you'll file a complaint with the BBB, the FTC and the Atty General's office in your state. Make it clear that you will give them far more grief than $175 would ever be worth. You were careless and lazy to let this happen, but that's what they were counting on, especially since they don't alert you that they'll be charging you the fee.
