So here's a new one for me... I received a call from Providian two nights ago telling me I was pre-approved for their Platinum card. All they needed from me was some information before they sent out their application. I said, no thank you, I'm not interested in another card. But the lady was pushy. She was almost insistant to know my income and SSN. I usually try to be polite, but it got to the point where I just had to hang up on her. I have never experienced a credit card company do that kind of hard sale. It was like being bullied into their card. Thanks, but no thanks.
