I signed up for a second Credit card last year and obviously have an inqury from when they ran my credit. Is there anyway I can ask for them to erase their inquiry? Keep in mind that they apporved me and I still have the card Laughing

I'd like to know, too. If it's possible to remove credit inquiries from the Credit Reports.

Re: Unauthorized Credit Inquiry

To whom it may concern,

I recently received a copy of my Equifax credit report. The credit
report showed a credit inquiry by your company that I do not recall
authorizing. I understand that you shouldn't be allowed to put an
inquiry on my file unless I have authorized it. Please have this
inquiry removed from my credit file because it is making it very
difficult for me to acquire credit.

I have sent this letter certified mail because I need your prompt
response to this issue. Please be so kind as to forward me
documentation that you have had the unauthorized inquiry removed.

If you find that I am remiss, and you did have my authorization to
inquire into my credit report, then please send me proof of this.

Thanking you in advance,

Your name

Alot of the Inquiries I have are Pre-Screened things. ..credit cards, etc. I know some Inquiries actually 'fall off' within a certain amount of time. I just don't know when that 'time' happens to be.

I believe they fall off after 2 years and you can call this number (1-888-567-8688) or visit optoutprescreen.com to be removed from the pre screening lists. I Have not gotten around to it since they are soft hits anyway.

Hi sdchargers_63

Credit inquiries usually come out of the credit report after two years. However if the customer is not willing to wait for two years, he may ask the creditor to remove the inquiry. You must challenge and see whether the creditor has privilege to pull up your credit file. If there is any ambiguity you can always threaten to contact the State Banking Commission if they don't remove an inquiry. Most of the creditors usually simply agree to delete the inquiry as they cannot verify the authorization.

What if it's something you DID authorize? Does it still stay on for 2 years? Can you get it removed before that? I mean..someone from a Bank, CC company? 'hard Inquiries, I think they are called.

You can try, but if it's legit, don't expect it to happen; creditors have little or no motivation to remove it. They have a minimal effect on the FICO after about a year anyway, and yes, they do drop off after two years.

When you have 'hard inquiries', does this drop your Credit score? If it does, how much?

Yes; a hard inquiry drops your score approximately five points...for about a year.

Yes it really could. Best to avoid them. Five points may not seem like much but like everything else they add up quick.

Can someone answer this please? As 'hard inquiries' DO fall off your Credit Report, does your score go UPWARD!?

As hard inquiries fall off the credit report, credit score should rise. Every hard inquiries takes off five points of the credit score and so it is wise to limit hard inquiries. As per FCRA only authorised inquiries should remain in your credit report and a person is entitled to $1,000 for each unauthorized hard inquiry.
