Random credit inquiry?

Hi, so I checked my credit score today, and found out my score was lowered because Fido decided to do a random inquiry. I've been with Fido for a very long time (8+ years?), so I am very confused as to why I got hit by this. Can someone help please? Thanks.

Hey @plstellmewhy and welcome to the Community.

 

This doesn't sound right.


Credit evaluations are done when:

 

- A new customer activates an account

- An existing customer whose previous credit result expired :

  • Activates a new line on an existing account.
  • Activates a new account

Is there any of those that was done on your end recently for your account?

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. None of those things have happened. I did not open anything or change anything on my account.

Thanks for letting us know @plstellmewhy.  

 

The following info is also reported to the credit bureau:  

 

-Activation, cancellation and last delinquency dates

-Bankruptcy and Credit Counselling Cancellation reason (voluntary or involuntary, fraud, activated in error, buyer’s remorse, under dispute)

-Identification (ID) information (name, address, SIN, date of birth, home phone number)

-Outstanding balance

-Payment

-Write-off and agency assignment

 

If you don't fall under any of those scenarios, let us know and we'll send you a PM to take a closer look at your account Smiley

Hi, thanks for replying. I'd like a pm please because nothing has happened at all. The only significant thing is that I went over my data, but that has happened before with no inquiry. Thanks again for the quick responses.

Re: Random credit inquiry?

Hello,

 

I had a credit check from Fido Solutions 6 weeks after my internet account was opened. Is this normal? If not, who should I contact?

Hey @bas123 ,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Did you request to have any services added to your account which would have required a credit inquiry?

 

Overall, are there 2 credit inquiries from Fido or only one?

 

Let us know!

Re: Random credit inquiry?

If there's only one inquiry it's the initial one we made to open the account, does that add up on your end @bas123 ?
