Yes, TU based services won't bump TU, and a single service will bump EQ only in extraordinary circumstances, if at all.


Thanks. Which one(s) would be recommended then?

To bump TU, Credit Secure.

Experian bumpage !??!!

There must be a technical glitch or something...

I had all of my 2008 hard Experian inquiries fall off with today's pull. (see before and after images)

EDIT: Unlike my report, MrsJ's 2008 Experian hard inquiries did not fall off.

EDIT2: I pulled an Experian report tonight to view my softs and discovered that all of 2008 is completely missing and the daily recording of pulls by TrueCredit and AMEXCreditSecure are now shown monthly (in the same manner EQ has been doing forever with choppage)

Federal Trade Commission rules governing the advertisement of free credit reports take effect Friday.

link to full story

To skirt new federal rules regulating Web sites that advertise free credit reports, they no longer are advertising "Free Credit Report!" Insteadthey have changed their look in recent days and now say they're offering "Free Credit Scores."
............................
TrueCredit.com parent TransUnion and CreditReport.com parent Mighty Net Inc. did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Experian, which owns FreeCreditReport.com, said in a statement this week that it "has been, and will continue to be, in compliance with the FTC's rules regarding the marketing of free credit reports. We remain committed to clearly and conspicuously disclosing to consumers that the free report we offer is not the free annual credit file disclosure provided by federal law, and plan to comply with the FTC's rules."

Does bumpage still work? or does it get chopped? I have about 12 hard inquiries on TU and 14 on eq that i want to knock off. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It is highly reccommended you use 4 services (three is adequate in some months and even two CAN work if there is no choppage to your EQ file for 60+ days).

I though those numbers were common among FWr's?

I was poking around creditboards and there seems to be a "chop list" that some people get put on, and some people are not on it so they don't get chopped at all. Current popular theory is that doing a "backdoor" puts you on the list.

Haha, most of them are multiple pulls, only a few (4?) are single pulls, not too sure about experian, assuming between 12 and 14?

Looks like TU is reinserting bumped inquiries again.

notalotbot said: Looks like TU is reinserting bumped inquiries again.Many reports of this now!!!

11 inquiries came roaring back for DW and 10 for me. I guess it's too early to tell if they bump again? I'm going to try. If they don't, I'll have to reconsider whether it is worth it to maintain Credit Secure for 1)better detail than Credit Karma, and 2)ability to dispute balances online.

The same here: 7 inqs came back on TU

4 back here.

ColbyS said: 4 back here.

And you didn't believe me.

Yep. Karma for giving you red I guess. According to everyone on CB TU is hunkering down.


pulls on TU

ColbyS said: According to everyone on CB TU is hunkering down.I pulled MrsJ's Transunion report this morning. She had a couple of September 2009 hards added back to her credit profile. More importantly, all of the pulls she has been doing this month (with USAA, CCT, NCIDP, CreditSecure & My Privacy Matters) were chopped (in the same way EQ chops).

See image at left.

What's unknown is whether this will be a daily chop by TransUnion or monthly like EQ does. I suspect TU will chop daily just like they have been doing with Credit Karma.....

man, my cr looks ugly now with all TU inquiries back

Anyone get bumpage after the chopage on 4/26?

Uso said: Anyone get bumpage after the chopage on 4/26?Yes. DW bumped a 09/29/2009 re-inserted hard with a 05/01/2010 pull.

My soft pulls are now capped at 52 no matter how many pulls I initiate. 63 pulls are needed for a an inquiry to be removed so TU bumpage is dead for me.

An app was created and posted on creditboards that will count your inquiries that count towards bumpage on EQ and TU if you copy/pate into the applett.

It's not the credit monitoring companies that have caught on, it's Transunion. Good luck.
