Invitation To Get Credit Card

3 posts in this topic

Got a phone call from my bank saying I was on a list as being eligible to apply for their "special" credit card. Went down to find out more & was given a brochure & application form. They couldn't seem to explain how/why I was on the list (ie. did it depend on foreigner status, level of savings, or what ?)Browsing through the form, it asked for a lot of information aside from the usual personal details-- father's name, mother's maiden name, names of all children (minors & adults), total monthly income, homeowner or renting, market value of any real estate owned, make & model of any vehicles owned............. :confused1[1]: The card supposedly offered certain "benefits" which they were eager to promote. I was reluctant to commit. The following week another phone call - "Well, have you made a decision ?" Yes ---> No thanks. Wondering why they would need this sort of information if I was already on their "list", or if it could be misused somehow ? Maybe they just offer these cards as an incentive to get your information ? Is it usual in Turkey ?

I expect they sell details on or use them as marketing tools to bombard you with other offers of things. Anyway for me that would be way too much information to be giving out to anyone
