I would go and pull your credit report regardless to check for errors. Also call AMEX during normal hours and they should be able to help you. 4 cards in a short period of time might be pushing it though.
Ever think about throwing them in the sock draw opposed to canceling them (if they don't have an annual.) Can't hurt to have some more credit.
Actually I was thinking that to be honest. On second thought I think I'll just sock drawer and never use them. They can add to my credit score through backdating until Amex closes them. I really don't care to do business with what Amex has become. In the old days the Rep would have taken care of this, but these guys just want to transfer you off to someone else and don't sweat it.
I pull my credit every day through Amex CreditSecure. There is no delinquent account on there - zip zilch nada as it should be. If they try to put one on there that doesn't belong to me, I know the law heavily favors them, but I will do whatever is legal and in my power to do to make it right, that much I've decided on. Who knows what will happen. You are supposed to have rights but when it comes right down to it you really don't and they are our masters and owners, they buy our government fair and square so we can just deal with it. But I won't just sit back and be pushed around for something I haven't done regardless. May never happen but if it does, I'll have to find me a good NACA attorney. I personally hope it doesn't come to anything like that though.
What I can say with certainty at this stage is I will never use those cards again, they are not in my wallet and will not return. If I choose to leave them in my drawer to help me, ok, but they won't get any more use. I'm done with Amex.
