Best way to get a new credit card with the highest limit?
I'm trying to get a new card with a high reported limit.

My Credit Karma score is 772, Credit sesame 834, utilization is 0% ($8 debt on $20200 available credit), reported history oldest 19 years average 13 years, never late.

I opened an AMEX personal savings account and deposited $23,000 thinking I might get a preapproval offer for a card without needing a hard inquiry (have fraud alert).

Got a decline from AMEX for their blue card probably because the automated system could not get past the fraud alert.

Am not a good phone hustler, so don't know how to execute a successful recon?
