Dear James,

You would need to talk to a lawyer licensed in your state for legal advice on this issue. but what I can tell you is that nearly ever single American Express business credit card application I’ve seen requires the person applying to personally guarantee the card. It’s one of those fine print things.

It sounds like if they seized your bank account that American Express successfully sued you over this debt. Had you not worked out any arrangements with them on this? Did they ever notify you about the suit?

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.

Sincerly,
Steve
