I recently got a new Comcast internet connection.
The sales agent asked me for my details like Name, DOB, SSN etc but never told me that this information will be used to do a hard pull on my credit history.
Today I checked my credit report and there has been a hard pull by Comcast.
1. I didn't authorize this credit pull and I wasn't given a copy of the T&C which may state that a hard pull would be done.
2. I haven't leased any equipment like router etc from Comcast and just took an internet connection. Inspite of that what was the need of a hard pull. A soft pull would have worked fine.
This is really bad Comcast. Just to provide a service of $40-50 a month, you lower the credit score of a customer and that too without consent. Please get the credit pull removed from my credit history.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello tmkaplan, Comcast can pull your credit w/o your permission as they have a legitimate business need in connection with a transaction that you initiated. We cannot remove the credit inquiry but we can request that it be "masked". If you would like for me to submit a request on your behalf please send me a private message by clicking on my name (ComcastAmir) and provide your full name, street address, and account number.
Yes, please do that. I'd send you a private message but it is not working for some reason
I am working on getting a private message sent to you so that we can get this taken care of please allow me 24 hours to get your private message enabled.
