do the credit checks affect your FICO score?

do the credit checks affect your FICO score?

Do the credit checks affect your FICO score?  I find it ridiculous that they 'have' to run a credit check and somewhat invasive.  I have 3 exisiting accounts with Comcast for several properties I own and all accounts are always paid, seems to me they should be able to see this when you call to order a new service, so I don't have to have another credit check.  If this affects my FICO score, it will stay on my report for 2 years!!!!

Hello DIANEPAPPAS1. It is standard practice to have a credit inquiry performed against your credit in order to establish a positive ID of your identity and to secure new lines of business at a new location.
