In KENTUCKY GEMB has always pulled TU for DEPARTMENT STORE credit cards.  If it's a MAJOR SALES FINANCE (like a furniture store or electronics store), they pull EQ.  Just to reference, I have all of the following with GEMB.  ALL OF THEM had to go through IDENTITY VERFICATION to get approvals.  If you ever get a delayed processing or "7-10 days" message, call and state that you need the FRAUD DEPARTMENT to complete IDENTITY VERIFICATION.

I live in South Carolina. I got approved for a Belk card last week and GEMB ran Transunion to check my credit.

jg33-  I see you posting on most GE threads.  Are you an employee of GEMB, per chance?  No harm if you are... probably even a good thing!  Just curious.

Sorry its been awhile since I have posted, but to answer the question if I work for GEMB,  that answer is NO, but I am familiar with the company, pretty well I guess. ---  after all I do have 6 of there cards and when I call there customer service, I have many many questions so I can be more familiar with whats going on with my accounts aswell as what new options I may have availble by providing the rep with  a scenario.
