When I signed up for Comcast internet they did not 1, but 2 separate hard pulls on my credit history. This showed up on my Credit Karma Equifax report as "Comcast Miscellaneous Utilities" so I think there's little question where the hard inquries came from. I don't think a hard and a credit score hit is necessary for setting up internet- I would have gladly paid off a full year contract in advance to avoid the credit pull. But now, not only is there 1 hard inquiry, there are 2 pulls for the same day on my credit report. I figure they would be able to cache the results of a hard pull and reuse that in a given day? I have a very, very young credit history and this is going to be a huge ding. Is there any way I can dispute one or both of these hard pulls?
Thanks in advance
Hi, davidzh - I can submit a request to mask these inquiries but I will need to get an additional information:
- Your full name, address, and a phone number associated with your account.
- The exact date of the inquiry on the credit report
- The name and address that listed on the credit report
- The screenshot of the report if possible.
Please send the requested information in a private message. Thank you!
