I have a new hard inquiry on my credit file from "EQUIFAX CONS AFF"
I have a new hard inquiry on my credit file from "EQUIFAX CONS AFF". This would be Equifax Consumer Affairs. I understand it being a "soft" inquiry but have no idea why Equifax pulling my file internally would result in a hard inquiry. I tried calling today but the Consumer Affairs division is temporarily closed due to a security breech. Pretty much the last thing you want to hear when your entire communication with them was because you're a victim of identity theft!
