Littlewoods!!!!!

I did a free Equifax report online and noticed littlewoods searched my credit file 4 times in one day.

I was not happy about this and asked Equifax to investigate and littlewoods turned round and said it was correct.

It wouldnt make sense for me to apply for a credit account 4 times in one day!!!!!

Ive asked them to close my account now because of it as im fumming...i deffo want order anything else from Littlewoods , if they want to be unprofessional like this.

What can i do about this , can they get away with this as it seems they can, Equifax was not very helpful they just told me to write to the company in Question.

You have to sign up for there gold service which is £69.99 a year but dont worry you dont get charged as its a 30 free trial first but only if you go for the gold.

Just make sure you cancel trial before 30 days :thumbsup:

it may show up, it did on mine but they are credit searches that do NOT damage your credit score.

i panicked when i read my report, read the small print stuff, it is not even a full search ( like a bank would do for a mortgage)

Oh i thought it did , as when there are numerous searches on your account it puts off other lenders like credit card company or bank etc??

I cant get good credit at the minute, only from my bank or crapital one

A-n-d-y

from what i understand ( amd what i was told) was that they were just address check sorts of credit checks ) as in does she/he live there. if you APPLY for credit more than 3 different times in a 6 month period it brings up a flag ( not great) but companies checking your details does not harm anything.
