How long until inquiries fall off my report.

So I have a question.  How long do inquiries stay on my report?

Hard pulls stay on your CR for 2 years, however FICO only includes them in your scoring for 1 year.   Most creditors will only look at the ones in the past year also, I've never seen anyone denied for inquiries over a year old.

How about 8 inquiries (not by me) over a 2 wk period?  Man, that has got to hurt!  Smiley Mad


Anyway to get these off?  And how much do you think these 8 inquiries are worth?
