Account cancelled for adding to my PayPal balance?
I received an email today that my AmEx was cancelled. Pulled all my reports and double checked everything. I've never had a late payment, credit utilisation is 22%, etc.. The only think I can think of is that I made a payment to my PayPal account 2 weeks ago when I went on vacation. I deposited it into my own PayPal account because AmEx isn't accepted in the country I was visiting. I made a payment on that amount already and have the balance set to pay on Aug 30 the due date. I googled and saw this happened somebody else. I never dreamed this would be an issue and of course would have used my visa if I had known. Was trying to use my AmEx as it's interest free. Has anyone ever had an AmEx cancellation reversed or do I just need to take it as a lesson learned and forget it? I am really bummed because it was my highest limit so far and my score had improved by 70 points.
