That is very strange. I would call Verizon and ask what thats all about. Could be fraud so I would be very concerned.

Keep an eye on your reports too, just in case this is fraud.

Nope!  They did it to me.  It falls off next month.

 

They told me it would be soft but pulled EX hard.

 

PP'd me off.  They hurt your score and contribute nothing

to better it.  I hate them!!!!!!!.........!!!

 

I didn't see the Penfed thing.  I don't understand the connection.

but Verizon pulls EX when you apply for cell phone.

They pulled hard for Fios too but for some strange reason after 6 months the inquiry got recoded to a soft pull all by itself.

I really believe the sales people don't know the difference

between a hard and a soft.  Verizon should step up and inform

their people.  When I had AT&T they didn't pull anything.
