Less than a month.  I'm really annoyed by it.  I mean, I don't plan on obtaining new credit any time soon but you never know.

Re: AT and T has two inquiries

Here's what I think you are looking for a non-permissible purpose letter.You may reword it to say they only has permission for one inquiry and not for two inquiries.

Or what I would suggest trying first is, calling at&t and talk with CSR to see if they can fix it over the phone, before you go thru the trouble of writing a letter.

 

Inquiries report for 2yrs and only hurt your CS for the first year,But from my experience an inquiry only hurt my CS by a few points only.

Re: AT and T has two inquiries

There is no apparent reason for them to have done this.  I agree that you should talk with this creditor, and ask them to delete the second inquiry.

But to say that the second was not a permissile pull will be difficult to support.

When they make an inquiry, they have to give a reason for the pull, such as for new credit, or review of an existing account.

There are no provisiions under FRCA 604 that limit the spacing of multiple credit inquiries.  I know of no justification for asserting a non-permissible pull.
