Your lender probably ran a hard instead of a soft inq. I hate it when they do that especiall when they are making the offer. Check your inquiries and if you did not authorize a ard, call and ask them to remove it or dispute it if its anywhere but Experian

And, yes, it was a hard inquiry, but I have had hard inquiries in the past, like shopping for a mortgage, and that didn't even drop it 8 points. That was why I posted this note...it seemed really extreme. In fact, the last credit inquiry on my report was for that Mortgage shopping I did in May of 2006 when I bought my current house.I'll admit that I've never seen this either. Did you pay off an installment or close an account.? That is truly wierd.
