Good morning everyone, I wish I had better news to share, but it looks like American Express is up to no good today. Myself and at least 1 other person I know, received the following email that says that their AMEX Serve Card was flagged for “unusual usage patterns.” This follows on the heels of AMEX Serve Card Mass Account Closures Effective Immediately (1/8/2016, Section 15.d). Based on these 2 data points, AMEX sends account closure emails around the first week of the month, possibly every other month. Did anyone receive an email between January 8 and today (March 4)? The title of the email says: Termination Of Funds Loading Capabilities on Your Serve® Account.
As of today, all my AMEX Serve Cards are closed and I have no more prepaid cards with American Express. It has been a good run, but now it is time to shred my final AMEX Serve Card. Did anyone else get hit with an account shutdown email today? I hope the rest of the weekend goes better :)
