    and why do they want me to carry their card?
    And should I, or am I opening the door to grief?

    I was one of the Get Smart(tm) cardholders who GotFuc#ed(tm) when they sold my account to eMerge. Fortunately I paid them off and closed teh account before they could do any damage to me. So.... I am naturally cautious and suspicious about solicitations from any company I don't know.

    Advanta advertises that they started out as a bank for teachers back in the 30's or 40's.

    Then they decided to specialize in business credit, and they seem to be one of the most prolific advertisers to their target market.

    There's no question that they're legitimate, and they usually offer low interest rates.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Now, with my FICO scores do I have a chance of getting their card?
