Every single month I have 3 hard credit inquiries showing up, what could this be from?
I've looked over what exactly a hard credit inquiry is and have not done anything listed within the examples. Where could these 3 inquiries be coming from every month? Is there some way to find out and stop them from occurring?

Hi Kimwhoa,

Hard inquiries stay on your credit report for 2 years. When you view your Credit Report Card on Credit Karma, we show you the total number of hard inquiries listed on your report (initiated in the past 2 years) - not the amount added. I believe you are seeing the same 3 inquiries each month. 

Since Credit Karma provides your full credit report, you should check that out to see the date and origin of your hard credit inquiries. Check here: https://www.creditkarma.com/myfinances/creditreport#inquiries

Hope that clears up any confusion!
