Credit Karma Inquiry number question.

According to DCU, I have 82 inquiries on my report for the past year.  According to Credit Karma, I only have 25. What makes me doubt CK is I had an inquiry from Sam's Club on 10/31/2012, but when I updated my score today, CK says that inquiry from 10/31/2012 was removed on 1/19/2013, and I have seen this happen to other inquiries on CK, this can't possibly be right. Can it?

CK pulls off Transunion, whereas DCU is Equifax all the time.

 

Inquiries aren't consistent between bureaus, for credit approvals an inquiry may be lodged on 0, 1, 2, or all 3 of the CRA's databases depending on lender and loan type.

 

I think what was surprising to the rest of us is that you had 82 on EQ alone (at least to me), 82 overall I could see but on a single bureau just seemed really high as that's on the order of an application every 10 days assuming the 2 year timeslice a credit report has for inquiries.

 

Beyond that I wouldn't trust CK that much as it's an interpretation of the base report, though for me it's been 1:1 with Transunion's data though I've never gone inquiry counting as TBH I couldn't care less about inquiries on TU personally :smileyhappy:.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 700, TU 04 731, EX 98 725 (05/24/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)

But i've promised myself that was the last app for at least 6 months lol.:smileylol:

Re: Credit Karma Inquiry number question.

I think gardening is a good first step, but also stay away from forums like these for a year!  You obviously have it pretty badly.

 

You have some good cards (I'm surprised about Penfed is one of the later ones, I thought all those inqs would have scared them off).   Take some time.

Re: Credit Karma Inquiry number question.

If you've recently had an AA (and I guess that's a yes), you should just pull your credit report directly from EQ.

Current Cards: AMEX Everyday ($10k), AMEX BCE ($10.2k), Arrival ($7.5k), Merrill+ ($7.5k), Freedom ($5k), Double Cash ($5k)

+1 

 

You have 3 different reports, you may have over 100 credit pulls across all 3. 

 

I suggest you stop apping and garden. You have a whole bunch of GE cards which they will grow in a short time. Request a CLI and it will help your overall UTI.

I haven't had any AA yet, but I'm thinking Barclay's will have something to say about the inquiries and new accounts in a couple months lol.

Re: Credit Karma Inquiry number question.

CreditKarma falls victim to a loophole in TransUnion's API that isn't allowed to be discussed here. If you pull your report directly from TransUnion, you will correctly see all of your inquiries; however, CreditKarma (willingly or not) can only see your last X inquiries.
