Still learning

I have what I hope is a couple of quickie questions...

JDB purchased a charge off. Shortly after that, JDB did a hard pull and the PP was "collection". (this occurred a year ago) How often can they do a hard pull? If I opt-out, will this prevent them from any hard of soft pulls?
Is an "Account Review Inquiry" on TU a soft or hard pull?
Thanks!!!

Re: Still learning

AR is a soft pull.
 
Based on what the FCRA says, a CA does have PP. However, speaking as opinion, they don't have the right to pull frequently (more than once for the same account). I've read some posts here of a CA pulling monthly. That's wrong.
 
Don't know about opting out. I would guess that can't pull hard or soft. Very likely it wouldn't be a soft pull.

Re: Still learning

Opting out prevents promotional soft pulls for CC offers.  It does not prevent hard pulls for PP, or soft pulls from companies with which you already have established a credit relationship

Ok so the CA did hard pull on EX in early 07 and then a soft pull on TU in late 07. Don't see one for EQ.
IMO, these CA's are just fishing for info because they have no info of their own. UGH

Is there any good reason to opt out besides promotional soft pulls?

1  Saves a lot of trees and recycling
 
2  Looks good on a manual review if one is in credit rebuilding mode
