A "backdoor number" is one that gets you past frontline CSR's directly to Credit Analysts / Credit Departments / Account Managers / Account Specialists (different lenders call 'em different things) - these people/departments have decision-making abilities far beyond frontline CSR's; they can take and review requests for reconsideration of denied CC apps or CLI requests, APR reductions, etc. and implement their decisions.

 

I can continuously update this first post with the latest information if everyone will post to this thread.  I'll make the change and acknowledge.  We deeply appreciate your participation.

AMEX Business charge cards - (877) 399-3083

I applied for a Business Platinum card and was declined by their automated system. Called the above number to ask about recon. I didn’t directly get an underwriter. But the lady on the phone took the information and said she’d get it to the UW department. I didn’t believe her, but she called back just a couple minutes later to say she spoke to the UW team and I was approved. So this should work for AMEX Biz charge cards. Not sure about their other cards though.

Done, original list updated.  Thank you very much for the contribution.

Marv, 

As I don't see it on the list, here is the number to Equifax' executive offices in Atlanta. 

 

404-885-8000

 

They can also transfer you to a US based agent for help. Was finally able to access my account once I got the right department on the phone. 

Done, and thank you very much for the contribution!

Citi: 605-331-1698 (EO - CC division)

This number worked for me on 10/17/19  - I was able to speak to someone that successfully pulled some of my credit limit from one Citi card and moved it over to another (that I had been continuously getting denied CLI requests on).

This is the number I called Tuesday, they said no access to UWs but they thought I had a good shot. Card is a business card so I grabbed it from the top list.

CITI COMBO UPDATE

five calls later and I've gotten a stone wall from analysts and EO on moving limits (premier to prestige) even when I've pointing out I'll be closing premier before the AF renews regardless of moving limits or not. All I get is Discovery-esk niceness thanking me for being citigold and a longtime cardholder.

Chase: 888-622-7547 (Chase Executive Ofc. in IL)
 

 

1) This number when dialed reports that the number has been changed to 800-242-7399 and when called, they informed me that although someone may be in Ilinois, the Chase Executive Office has never been in Illinois which I can neither confirm nor deny.

 

2) When speaking to the executive offices I was transferred to 888-609-7805 which was identified as a credit analyst.  Executive offices were not able to identify what office/dept that-that number was for.  I googled.  That credit scoring company web-site came up and said that they were RECON.  I was told by EO that they were not RECON but that they were CSR.  When Maria answered the phone Chase Lending was stated.
