    Wow, I've actually never heard of that before. Have you been applying for other credit cards, or other types of loans?

    Credit card issuers are essentially able to close an account for any reason, and the credit card statement you signed probably gives them full authority to do that. Did they give you any notice prior to closing the account?

    It's a shame they didn't provide any notice, but they actually aren't required to. Unfortunately, there's really not much you can do other than write a letter to them and complain.
