Does anyone know who AXIANT is? I've never received anything from them via phone or mail but they have 4 inquiries on my credit report. And 2 of them are 2 days apart and the other two are subsequent months later. Is it legal for some random company to make inquiries? I haven't applied for any credit yet I have 4 hard inquiries on my report. I've disputed it with the CRA but they didn't remove them.

Google is your friend:
They are a collection agency. There is dissenting opinion on whether a CA can do a hard pull. Either way I think 4 pulls in a few months is excessive and serves no other purpose than to damage your credit.

Sounds like they're fishing . . .
Looking for you to start repairing/rebuilding, so they can make it worse. Anything out there floating around that might have landed with Axiant?
Are you saying they're doing hard pulls or soft pulls?

Thanks. Yeah, I knew they were a collection agency but I thought maybe someone knew which creditors they work with. They are HARD PULLS and two were only 2 days apart. I posted my story before but the short version is I live in Paris and have for many many years. While I was in Paris my mother was getting credit cards with my SSN. Fortunately, I've been able to remove most of them but some companies won't remove them without taking legal action against my mother which I won't do.
This was many years ago so fortunately they will be dropping off my report at the end of next year. I never knew about this until earlier this year when I decided to check my credit reports. Even with all of that the scores jumped up to 702 on Equifax and 709 with TransUnion but it was over 800 before I moved to Paris.
Any one have any advice how to get these Axiant hardpulls off my report?

Whatever State they're based in....I'd file a complaint w/ the AG's office. Be sure to include the printout of all their INQ.
