I was wondering... Can you get companies to remove inquiries?

Not good to remove valid inquiries. Are they errors?  Did the inquirer have permissable purpose?

Actually, there was a equity loan I applied for and did not get accepted. Basically, I did not have enough equity at the time.

I just had a creditor update my report as changed but my score did not improve. Anyone have any ideas? I apologize for posting on this thread but I can not seem to post a new one. Thank you

GW is your only option if the puller had PP (which they did).
