bill me later? hard pull?

Dear all,

 

I registered a new paypal account, and put my address, birthday , and 4 digits of ssn

 

I found that I have $250 line for bill me later...   I understood  what I did.

 

paypal is cheating me ...and put bill me later on the side when I applied a new paypal account.

 

BILL ME LATER wil have l hard pull on my report.

 

is there any way I can argue?  should I call bill me later? paypal? or credit bureaus?

 

thanks  a lot

 

Kevin

Re: bill me later? hard pull?

bill me later is a hard pull to open the account, but it is a great account to have since it is not reported.  I used to use it frequently, but it is not offered on ebay.co.uk where I currently make the majority of my ebay purchases.

I called paypal. they transferred me to bill me later.

 

they closed my account, but can not remove  the hard pull on my report.

 

ask me to dispute  with credit beuraus

 

Is there any person disputed successfully?

Re: bill me later? hard pull?

Somehow, you probably gave them permission to pull your credit and open a bill me now account for you if you qualified - I suggest reading all those pages of text where you clicked "I Agree".

 

Personally, I think you made a big dumb mistake: you got all upset over the hardpull but received a new line of credit - now you close the credit account and are still stuck with the hardpull.

 

You won't be able to dispute that hardpull with Experian, Equifax, or Trans Union.

 

Congratulations: you have a brand new hardpull and now nothing to show for it.

You did get screwed over but I agree, you should have just stuck with your new line of credit.

I'd call them and see if they will reopen the account. It doesn't hurt to try.
