I applied for an MBNA card, on the application it asked me who my employer. The next day MBNA called my work up to speak to me. They ask me to provide general info like address and dob.
My question is, is this a norm for credit card companies, why couldn’t they just phone my mobile which I had provided to them instead of phoning my work phone. (I didn’t even give them my work phone number just my employers name).
