I'm starting a new job soon and moving to a new city. I've never held a credit card and want to apply for one. As with all moves there are likely to be expenses so I'd love to be able to stick them on my credit card to start taking advantage of the cashback (obviously wouldn't use more than I can pay back once my new salary kicks in).
When applying for a card I am asked to report my employment status and income. Right at this very moment I'm not in employment as I was taking some time to travel between jobs. I'm due to start working towards the end of this month - I have a written offer which I have accepted and returned signed. Is it ok to report my future income instead or would that be considered fraud?
