    I just ordered my EQ FICO score/report and there's a "FILE BLOCKED FOR PROMOTIONAL PURPOSES" under the "additional information" part. Is there some significance to this or is it normal?

    And what the heck is "Bell Atlantic" doing snooping through my file (it's only a "PRM" but strange since they don't even offer service in this area)???

    You must have signed up for the OPT-OUT...(SOMETHING I WOULD NEVER DO EVEN IF I GOT PAID $1,000 TO DO IT)...but that's me...

    PRM, AR, AM all help with BUMPAGE...

    Also if you get an offer...90% or more of the time they are better offers than you can normally get!!!

    Yeah, you must have checked the box where the fine print says something like "if you don't want us to share your personal information, yadda, yadda..."

    But it can help or hinder to do so.

    1) For instance, in my and hubby's case, we didn't want potential creditors getting/storing snapshots of our credit while the balances were high (it's been proven here that they can and do this!!), and we were paying down debt and while I get some derogs off mine.

    So when we finally apply for new high CL cards later, the new creditor will only have the current report to go and not be able to compare it some older report.

    2) On the other hand, my son intentionally NOT blocked his because he's building credit, and wants to received preapprovals.
    Hope
