Title: To Many Credit Card Applications From One IP Address
Post by: israeli on June 16, 2008, 05:00:39 PM
I recently signed up for a whole slew of credit cards, not only  for myself but for my wife, brother in law, sister in law etc,  the list goes on.
On the last few from AMEX, the applications were approved pending further verification.
I have a hunch it may be related to so many applications from one IP address. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with such a thing?
Thanks in advance.

I have no experience with this, but you may be correct.
So many applications coming from one IP address may be a red flag for identity theft/ fraud.

Is there any safe way to hide the IP address while still enabling cookies?

Why not just go to someone else's computer and do the rest there? or go to a library?

or a proxy address will work then you don't have to go anywhere

I've applied for cards for tons of relatives all from my ip address without any hassles.
While they may need to further review the apps, they should go through without a problem.
I don't think I'd feel comfortable applying for cards via proxy ip's.
