Security freeze experts wanted!

I applied for a cabella's visa. I have a security freeze on my EQ. report. I did not think it would matter, as i was the one asking, and allowing them to check my report. Their access was denied, DUh! Homer. Stupid assumption on my part. Will this cost me a hard pull, or even this would have been denied, since they could not look at my report? Ah, the devil is in the details. I am learning from you guys though. Got my flame suit on!!!

Re: Security freeze experts wanted!

There will be no hard pull, since they cannot access your report. If you want to apply, you will have to unfreeze EQ first, or call and ask if they can pull an alternate bureau. They may or may not do this.
