I receive the email below from Amex. Anyone know if this would be a hard pull on my credit score?

Amex CLI isn't a hard pull, even if you request it.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I don't believe the reps know what they are talking about when it comes to credit scores.

Maybe it's me but I never request nor accept credit line increases. I'd quicker use another card before I "manually" increase.
