Queen refused credit card!!

Ok, not the real queen. Wink
I had a link to one off these credit card approval sites. So for the hell of it I filled out in with the queens details. Age, address, time at address, income etc. And she was rejected from mainstream banks, but was suggested she tries for one of the higher interest for high risk applicants companies. Angry
Sorry 'mum.

The good news is that we have found some great alternatives that could be available to you and can help you build a better credit history'

Does that mean she's probably only allowed pre-pay meters for her gas and electric Undecided

She famously never carries cash, and probably wouldn't want a card.  Wink

These days I expect the queen is not alone in never carrying cash - I rarely do.

Re: Queen refused credit card!!

I did one of those free credit checks a while ago and it came back poor.
The reason: I have had no mortgage, loans or other credit deals for a large number of years Huh

Might try again as Nick Leeson, see if he gets offered a mainstream credit card (It's probably him at the other end deciding who gets credit).

Re: Queen refused credit card!!

well I got told years ago I should take out a sim only contract from a mobile operator because they set that up as a credit account and so long as the payment are on time in full then it boosts your credit score, strangely enough I already had 2 of them with capped usage rates for 2 years at that point, when I asked the muppet to check the credentials it turned out he hadn't closed the previous rejects file and was using the wrong details for the application ......
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you
