PISSED AT DCU!

Hello. I applied for a personal loan about 3 weeks ago with DCU and was denied. after reading all the forums on DCU i decided to open a checking and savings and set up direct deposit so that I can build a relationship with them to get a credit card and future products.

 

I called in and said I wanted to open the checking and savings ONLY IF they wouldnt pull another inquiry since my last one was only three weeks ago. They garunteed me that it would be the same report as before and I wouldnt get another inquiry. I said ok thats fine. They opened the accounts and had me apply for a credit card. AGAIN saying it would be the same pull from 3 weeks ago. I said sure why not if its the same pull.

 

Sure enough today, MYFICO emailed me to tell me DCU has inquired my credit report!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Super pissed as I am "gardening" because I have 10+ inquires and 4 accounts opened in the last 6 months.

 

Can i dispute this or what!? should i leave it alone?

 

Also, on the DCU website, on the bottom is says "NOT NCUA INSURed", "NOT CREDIT UNION GUARANTEED" and "MAY LOSE VALUE". wtheck does that mean??? should i not continue starting these accounts!? I heard so many good things about DCU but now I am unsure.

I called in as soon as i got the email about the inquiry and the office is closed. Seriously, its not 24 hours like B oF A?

 

Thanks and sorry about venting!

Sorry you didnt get approved for your loan, but it is known that they do multiple pulls for credit and membership. 

 

You can however dispute the pull. Good luck and I hope they remove it. 

 

Also most CU's are not 24 hours.

Sorry about your denial.  I heard DCU pulled EQ to open membership.  They will pull another HP if you apply for credit card or any other credit product.   They have been talking about HP to open membership on this forum.

Re: PISSED AT DCU!

Sucks about the hardpulls... not sure but I think they are 24 hours, but closed due to NEMO.

 

Also the insurance line is in reference to their investment products not regular deposit accounts.

Re: PISSED AT DCU!

interesting....

 

I didnt get approved for the credit card because I Have 4 account opened under 6 months old.

 

Im going to let those age a little bit and set up direct deposit into the account in hopes to get approved down the line..thats why i was so upset about the extra HP when they specifically told me over and over it wouldnt be another pull!!

They are not open 24 hours- their 'PC BRANCH' is available but no human. Sat is half day. Today they closed early due to the weather.
