Open account?

Back in January I was looking to get cable or satelite in my house and Comcast Cable network did a hard pull on my credit but I never opened an account with them. I did, however, authorize them to pull credit because I was 90% sure I was going with Comcast (until I found a great deal elsewhere).
Is this an issue that I can GW?
Is it possible for Comcast, or anyone for that matter, to take a hard pull off a credit report?
Thanks!

Re: Open account?

It is possible that they can remove/re-code.
 
All you can do is write/call them and ask them to do such, if they say no, then you are stuck with it.
 
In Jan next year, it will no longer effect scores.
