    I have received a guaranteed approval letter from Providian Financial for a $500.00 visa card. All I have to do is send in a 49.00 processing fee. The say they will not even check my credit prior to issuing the card. Has any one had this same offer, and is it valid? Thanks for your help.

    My credit was non-existant, then I receieved the same application in the mail. This was 10/99. Today I have a $1500.00, credit protection, and a life insurance policy for $100,000. Not bad for 6 months worth of on time payments. Drawback: $49.00 for each new line of credit increase billed to your card. The way the new e-conomy is heading I needed this card. Hope I helped.

    It is a lie that they say "we will not check your credit."

    They reviewed your Equifax report before they sent you the offer, that's why you got it in the first place, because you had a low score.

    If it is a lie, it is a white lie. They have received his name because of a promotional inquiry into his credit report. Providian most often uses Experian. Of course they or Experian pulled his score, and gave it a green light. But this inquiry is not visible to other potential creditors. And it does not affect his credit score at all.

    James,I know it seems strange talking to another James but this is real! I've had my Visa from Providian for almost two years and I'm more than satisfied with Providian. I didn't have a good credit history prior to receiving my card but now,with their help I have other cards and a much better credit status! I believe this was all due to Providian giving me a chance.Give them a try I think you'll be surprised.
