Re: credit score

Hi ash_peesian, 

Thanks for your post and a big welcome to the Community. It's great having you on board with us. 

We're sorry to hear you were unaware that we would credit check you when applying for your recent new contract. This is made clear when ordering online and also when speaking to the teams. 

You can view more on why we credit check here: Our Credit check policy.

In terms of getting any points back, this is something you can speak to Clearscore regarding. 

Let us know if you have any further issues. 

Thanks,

Kath_F

Re: credit score

Hi ash_peesian, 

Thanks for coming back to us on this. 

Regardless of whether you have a contract with us already, if you decide to take a new contract then a new credit search would be run and recorded on your file. 

We wouldn't be able to remove a search that has been correctly conducted I'm afraid. 

Thanks,

Re: credit score

It would be 2 phones on two different unsecured loans so the searches would be correct.

As to your actual credit score that would be down to the agency

ignore the score only you see it. it bears little relation to banks/other providers of determining if you get credit. they use their own scoring system. they will also have access to information experian, clear score etc do not have.

virgin nor any other company will never remove a hard credit search unless an error has been made or it is the result of a fraudulent record.
