Or perhaps they have a long credit history but shallow credit report.

Someone with an extremely high income usually sees little use in obtaining credit when they can just save money by not paying interest.

A person could be 45 years old, have an extremely high income, have no inquiries and one account on their credit report, no carried balances, no late payments and have excellent credit... Certainly enough to get a card with a $30,000+ limit.

Everyone who takes out a loan is a risk. Everyone.

Merchant supplied one invoice showing the order but the problem was, merchant charged his card twice. What are you going to do?
Citi isn't exactly the brightest card issuer out there, so nobody should ever take an involuntary closure from that bank to heart.
