American Express employees strong-armed small businesses to boost sales, according to former customers and employees

American Express employees misled and coerced scores of small-business owners into signing up for cards, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal.

Employees reportedly checked customers' credit scores against their wishes, "misrepresented" the fees and rewards associated with the cards, and sometimes issued cards that customers didn't ask for, according to more than a dozen current and former employees across sales, customer service, and compliance who spoke to the Journal.
