Because none of us seem to get EQ inq's just EX.
 
It must have something to do with where you live.

Re: What about us subprimers...

For the last several weeks it has been rumored consumers with subprime CCs reporting on their CRs will see their FICO scores plummet once FICO'S new and improved scoring model debuts this September. JUST IN, THIS IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! So what will the new FICO scoring model do? Simply put, a better job of predicting subprime and prime risk than earlier versions of FICO scoring models. That's it!

FICO 08 Scores (11-08-2014): EQ 818, EX 817, TU 822
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!

Cool. Like some others I had doubts that FICO could accomplish a logical separation of prime and subprime, given the sheer number of cards and endless combinations of APR, CL, and fees.

I know the information about FICO penalizing subprime CCs came from a video mentioned in another thread. Where did the update come from that said this is not going to happen?
