BANK OF AMERICA INQUIRIES

hi guys, i just received another alert from my identity thief protection program that BoA pull another hard inquiry on my account.

Here are the inquiries and date, i applied for the travel reward card on Sep 4:

Sep 4 , HP from experian

Sep 12+ 21, 2 HP from Trans union

Does anyone know why BoA pulled 3 HP for only 1 credit card app? What should i do next to get those extra HP removed?Thanks

Did you apply on the 4th? Ask for a CLI? Recon at all?

Re: BANK OF AMERICA INQUIRIES

I have 2:  Once when I applied, and once when I asked for a CLI a year later.  They haven't randomly pulled my report ever.  They do soft pull all reports though (along with all of my other creditors).

 

Lexie is right though, if you asked for more credit or a recon, this is considered a new request for credit and will be a HP from many creditors.

Lexie,  yes i applied on the 4 and they approved a day later, so i didn't need to call for recon and definitely not request increase CL. On Sep 11 i saw the 2nd inquiry, call the backdoor number, they said they will look at the issue and now a 3rd inquiry pop up, unbelievable! My wife add me as AU on her BoA, but they dont HP AU right?

Re: BANK OF AMERICA INQUIRIES

Big Bang, the first inquiry on TU and EX each are legitimate. It just means they double pulled you. Your monitoring service probably had some delay regarding the TU inquiry being reported. As for the 2nd inquiry on TU (your 3rd overall), that one is weird.

Re: BANK OF AMERICA INQUIRIES

When I applied for Travel Rewards, Bank of America used my Experian score but they also hard pulled my TransUnion twice according to Credit Karma. They hard pulled it, removed it, hard pulled it again, then removed it again. These pulls don't matter since they were removed.

American Express Blue Cash Everyday - $11,000; American Express Platinum Cashback Everyday - £2,500; Aqua Reward Mastercard - £600; Bank of America Travel Rewards - $5,000; Citi Forward - $5,800; Discover It - $5,500; HSBC Platinum with Rewards - $5,000

I have seen TU report HP's, delete them, then put them back on, all within a matter of days. While you might have received two alerts, there is a good chance you only have one HP. You might want to check your full report to verify that there are two pulls.

Hopefully it is just delayed alerts. It is definitely worth a phone call though. Keep us updated on what they say if/when you call.
