    This is a great board (just found it). I have a couple of quick questions:

    First, I've tried to dispute the inquiries on all three of the agencies and I have received letters stating that they do not need to investigate inquiries as they are "deemed" permissible; Any advice? What should I say to them? This is now the one real negative on my credit.

    Second, I have spent the last six months really working on my credit. I managed to get more than 12 negatives removed from each agency. However, as it stands today, only TransUnion is perfect - NO negative items!! I am trying to find a decent credit card that only uses TransUnion. Does anyone know where to look?

    Thanks so much

    Chase pulled TU on me when I applied.

    The site you are on has a CRA list.

    Also, checkout

    You're absolutely right. I saw that Chase pulled from TU. I applied online and got a $5000 credit line instantly.

    Thanks everyone for the "lists" Those are great. I'm going to start updating those with my own inquiry lists.

    What were your scores when Chase pulled your TU?

    Be advised, guys and gals: When I applied for a Chase Secured card a couple of months ago, Chase pulled an EXPERIAN report. They did not pull a Trans Union or an Equifax report, just Experian. I live in California. Everyone seems to pull Experian for applicants living in California.

    Interesting that Chase pulled Experian on you. I too am in California...Southern Cal...and Chase pulled Transunion on me. The card I applied for was unsecured but I don't think that should make a difference. I've had my Chase card for about seven months now and they haven't snooped on Equifax or Experian.

    Donna, I live in Northern California and Chase definitely pulled an Experian report on me. I don't know if the reason for that is because of geography or because of the nature of the product (a secured card), but it stinks because Experian is my worst report. I was denied the card. Which is fine, because as I go from the subprime to prime world of credit, I will remember their denial and act accordingly when I received their "preapproved" offer.
    I am glad that things worked out for you, though.
