I agree that there must be something terribly wrong with Barclays Bank, Delaware. It recently denied issuing me an LLBean Visa Card, citing that information contained in my TransUnion Credit Report suggests that I am not a permanent resident in the United States.
Barclays PLC (US branch Card Service) - please read the Credit Report carefully. I have a perfect credit history for over 17 years in US. I have never been late with any of my payments. How could I have this continuous credit history if I don't reside in this country as a permanent resident?
Barclays Delaware then requested me to send them a copy of my passport with photo, or my birth certifacte to show I was born in USk, etc. etc. Or else, they would not give my credit card application further consideration. This is BLATANT violation of Equal Credit Opportunity Act!!
LL Bean is a great company and sells high quality product. It should never partner with Barclays Bank, Delaware.
