52.5 K Avios show up unexpected in account!
« on: November 04, 2013, 02:01:47 PM »
To get you up to date:
I opened up a BA cc in May 2011 for 100k signup bonus. I closed the account shortly afterwards.
I just got an email today saying that "You have asked to reset your password". (I did not make that request but decided to follow the link either way to see if it would work). It did work and I see in my acount a credit in September of 2.5k with descr.     "Finance Card - BA VISA NON BA SPEND" and then credit in october of 50k with description "Finance Card - BA VISA BONUS AVIOS".

I called Chase and no credit card was opened on her account.

What could the reason for this be?
Is this an unexpected bonus due to some glitch or a reason to worry that someone is messing with my identity?

Thank you!

Why would I want the points removed?
I'm just trying to make sense of what happened. (1.The email to reset my password 2. points unexpectedly showing up)

Sometime accidentally put down your ff# on their chase application. They then tried to access the account to get their points.

Thank you!
That would explain things, but isn't their name different then mine?
If I call British, would they take away my points or is there a way for me to ask that the points stay as a courtesy to the mistake..
Do you suggest I do anything or just wait?

I  doubt they would give you 52.5k as a courtesy. AYLOR

so it turns out as ERGEL said that my brother recently got a BA cc and never got his 50k bonus points for his card and at the same time that he requested access to his account, I got an email to change password... (BUT he did not put down any FF number)

Any suggestions how to walk away with something from this mixup?

He should call and tell them he never got the miles, worst case they'll take them from your account and give them to him. If you're lucky he'll get his own account with the miles.

Do Chase BA credit cards list the BA FFN on them?

It's unlikely you'll both get the miles.

Either he shuts up and you keep them, or he speaks up, says he didn't get the miles, BA investigates, and removes them from you and gives them to him.
