Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Call your CC provider to take it out of fraud.

I've read that if you have too much CL with chase it can be a red flag for an FR.
Is this true?
If I'm claiming to make 60K annual (which I can't actually back up as I'm a bochur) and they currently extend me $15,600 between all my cards is that a red flag? And if yes how should I go about lowering it?

The credit is divided as follows:
CSP 6,800
CFU 4,600
CFF 4,200

15,600 with a $60k income isnít so bad at all. People with that income have 15,600 CL on a single card & total CL of several hundred thousand.

If you are over 21 and living at home you can use your parents income too.
I'm not who you think I am.

And if I'm 20 and not living at home? And I can't prove documentation for my parents income?

You dont have to provide documentation unless they ask. But if you are under 21 or not (legally) living at home you can not use parents income.

Why do CC companies ask in the application how much of your income is taxable?
