Re: checking accounts

thanks tuscani--the real deal is --my account was  in new hampshire for years and live in CT so branch kept losing my deposits. Told me to switch to CT so mistakes on their part would stop.  Did not know I would need hard one--maybe soft.  Equifax holds everything against you.

The CRA thinks an inq is an inq.  Adding a cell phone line, switching to cable TV, opening a new bank account, getting utilities hooked up, are all "seeking for credit" to a CRA and FICO

Then you are lucky.  Try Cingular for a nice hard inq  :smileyvery-happy:
