1.  Can we say that even opening a new account shouldn't result in an INQ because one's other creditors can see the new account when it reports and that is when they should get notification?

Now THERE is an idea that has merit . . . . . . . Smiley Very Happy

Re: Are most CCC's requiring a hard pull for a CLI now?

we already know with increasing inq default rates go up markedly, so it is unlikely that lenders will cease to rely on them as an indication of risk, unless statistically they fail to show it.

And where in the new credit card law does it state that a CLI request requires a hard pull?  Several posters have mentioned that the CSR is referring to the new credit card law as their reason for requiring a hard pull?

 


Anybody able to answer that question?  I sure the heck would be interested in seeing where it is mandated by law that a CLI requires a hard pull.

even though by most accounts it doesn't specifically state this, lenders may be using creative interpretation of the law to suit their interests for the foreseeable future.

Just got a BoA CLI this week ($8K!  woohoo!), and it was a soft pull.

Yep; BoA and possibly Amex are the only two (banks), I have heard of recently that are not using the "creative interpretation" method of the new credit law . . . Smiley Mad

Re: Are most CCC's requiring a hard pull for a CLI now?

Well, today I called 5th/3rd bank to ask for a CLI, I had not ask for one in a years time. Anyways, the CSR informed me of the process, what limit was I asking for. Then they would look at my credit and I would have an answer in 24 hours. I asked if this would be a hard and was told yes. I passed on it, because if I am going to take a hard, it should be for new credit.
