HP question..

I applied for Barclays card and last week and got denied.. the reason was i have a short credit history (re-establish).. I called them to reconsider

and they hp again without my permission.. Now i have 2 HP within a week from the same bank.. Is reconsider means Re applying??

You can call them, yell at them, but I don't think you will be able to get the HP removed.

 

I understand it's unfair but, I will just live with it and NOT sweat it out too much. Not many lenders use TU anyway.

Re: HP question..

Greetings tassim....

 

First off...welcome to the forums!  I want to mention & ask a few things.

 

When you called the second time, what did they say?  Were you approved?  Denied? have to wait a few days?

 

I do want to mention, I see your scores in your sig block, but where did you get them?  How long is your credit history?  Do you have any baddies (negative items reporting)?

 

If you do have bad marks on your reports, there are ways to try & clean these up.  If that is the case, I highly suggest repairing before trying to rebuild.  The cleaner the report, the more likely you are to be approved.  Let us know if you have any baddies on your report & we can help you from there. 

 

I would hold off on any more apps until we can help you bring up your scores.

 

You came to the right place tho...this site has helped me tremendously through the years!!  I just like repaying that favor!



Starting Score: 02/2015 TU 709 - EQ 676 - EX 729
Current Score: 07/2015 TU 730 - EQ 699 - EX 724
Goal Score: 850

Bury me in the garden...last app 08.09.15

Re: HP question..

How do you know you have another inquiry from them? For whatever reason when I ask for reconsideration from them, Credit Karma will say an inquiry has been made but it actually has not been. I think maybe they pull it again but delete the inquiry the same day.
