who can pull my credit report

Hi All,

I was recently looking at my credit report and there  are a few firms I see who I cannot identify who have done "soft pulls" of my report. I was curious if any one can do that besides those who I already do business with or those who I have given permission to.

Can random CAs pull my credit report?

Re: who can pull my credit report

Anyone that has permissible purpose can pull your report.  CAs that have an account for you are allowed even if they are not reporting.
