If he meant FR I'm pretty sure he would've said FR.

Rough crowd today. If there are shutdowns for third party payments I am sure we would have heard about it.

Thanks for the update.  I didn't read the OP. >:(
Many send third party payments to Amex. No reports I have seen so I would guess something else is in play.

I've seen reports of it being an FR trigger, (doesn't seem like a prominent trigger), but this I've never heard.

i got shut down from chase for that . cc and bank accounts.
 ETA as far as i remember i used a third party check once from a buying group. the owner of that buying group was shut down for some reason and they closed down a lot of people that they had on record as using his checks to pay their cc
