I applied a couple of weeks ago for an American Airlines credit card online. I was not entirely surprised when I was denied, because even though I have no open collections on my credit reports, I do have a few things that have made my credit shaky.
Fast forward to today.
I get a phone call at work from someone at CitiBank, she apologized for calling me at work but she wanted to speak to me about the application for an American Airlines Citibank card that I had applied for online. Then she went on to say that the application was denied in error, and if I still wanted the card she would complete processing the application and I should have everything in a week or so. She never asked for any additional information, just asked me if I had any questions, and the entire call was about a minute.
So after I hung up I started thinking ... does any of this sound fishy? I didn't even write her name down so I feel like a total bozo, I shreded the application and everything so I have nothing to refer to until I get something in the mail next week (hopefully). Any thoughts?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
