Well not the credit card company you worked for.. But i did read up, most just look over the date, then file it in the trashcan.
My parents had some problems with a credit card company 7 years ago, was looking up on how to deal with them when i ran into that.
The credit card company could not prove that the card was their's, they did not even have the SSN that was used on file.

I'm 21 w/a minor history of credit (only good) , parents have a perfect credit rating and I can't even get a card bc there being so strict nowadays
Really, which credit card company you applying to? Also don't forget the bail out the gov gave banks and credit card company's, so it might be a bit harder to get a credit card.
10 to 1 i can get a credit card without no problem, i've not applied for one yet. I've got 0 for credit history.
