BoA--SO ANNOYED

So earlier today  I was looking at my Bank of America account on line and realized that I hadn't received a CLI in a while. I filled out the request form, making sure that a HP wasn't going to be required. I mean, I was being VERY CAREFUL. I went ahead and pulled the trigger are received an increase of 2k. Fast forward to me downloading a new report several hours later and BOOM of course there's a new inquiry from them on there! DAMMIT. I was waiting for my May 12 inquiry to fall off in order to get a CLI from Chase. Now I am so annoyed--do you think there's any use in calling? Also, saddest part of this whole deal? It's a Visa sig card and they don't even report the CL, so my util won't even go down. UGH!

No use in calling, I wouldn't be too upset about it. Chase isn't going to get spooked over 1 INQ.

Also your inq from May 2012 won't fall off until May 2014, they stay on for 2 years.

OP may be speaking from falling off of FICO scoring.

Re: BoA--SO ANNOYED

Why do people not expect a HP for a CLI request? That should be a given for most lenders. If you get a SP take it as a good thing, but always expect a HP when asking for a CLI.

Re: BoA--SO ANNOYED

Thanks Credit Scholar! I've actually never had a HP from a B of A CLI before, but I appreciate your help.

Re: BoA--SO ANNOYED

Most of the time it will say something about authorising them to obtain a copy of a credit report or review a credit report to process the request. You have no reason to be annoyed unless the page said it would only be a soft inquiry.

Re: BoA--SO ANNOYED

I actually scoured the page and this verbiage did not appear anywhere, that's why I'm annoyed. But I've decided to get over it. One can obsess about these details a tad too much and not see the forest for the trees! Thanks for all your help everyone.Woman Happy

Re: BoA--SO ANNOYED

This kind of relates to being annoyed with BofA, but has this happened to anybody?

 

You call the # on the back of your credit card & you get turned down because they're updating the computer systems.


I just called multiple times and I've heard numerous responses ranging from the computers updating and to call back in 4-8 hours later.

I tried searching it up on the boards, but I couldn't really find anything.

Hey Bob, here is a tip. Don't call the number on the back of your card.  Call the backdoor number and talk to a credit analyst or request online.
