Welcome to CreditBoards! We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free
    to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section.
    Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part! It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the bottom of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.

Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

its called B* research the master B* thread, you will need to pull your credit daily until you have pulled it 85 times since your last inquiry, one the 85 inquiries fill up with softs (pulls made by you) then the hards (pulls you authorized to obtain credit) fall off its like a conveyor belt that can only hold 85 things, start adding softs and the hards move toward the end, once they reach the end they are no longer show as an inquiry! good luck, this can be done in about 20-25 days with the right pullers, sc, mpm, usaa, and ec is what i use

For EQ use: usaa only for 85 days OR use mpm, usaa, and ec for 28 days

For TU use: sc for 56 days

The only thing I knew the acronym for was; USAA....isn't there one for EQ & TU at the same time...

even if you get them all removed, many lenders now use CRAs that track applications so you might get to zero on EQ but on one of these other CRAs your application history will be revealed.

What is SC? I have EQ down packed now, and want to focus on TU.

I've never heard of this. I thought CRA's are only allowed to "record" applications if the bank/credit union goes through that particalluar CRA. i.e. CRA ABC can't track applications that go through EQ, EXP or TU, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong.

sorry but I don't need to prove anything. Perhaps you should do some research.,

I've never heard of this. I thought CRA's are only allowed to "record" applications if the bank/credit union goes through that particalluar CRA. i.e. CRA ABC can't track applications that go through EQ, EXP or TU, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong.


there are hundreds of CRAs and some exist to almost exclusively track applications. All the $$$ some people waste on B* is fruitless if a lender uses one of these alternative CRAs.

I see. I've never used a bank / credit union that uses these CRAs, or it's never been an issue *yet*. I mainly just use NFCU, hopefully they don't catch on!
