If the credit pulls were not authorized, write a letter to each of the bureaus that are reporting the inquiries, and let them know that they were not authorized.

If you did authorize the credit pulls, then this information will likely stay on your credit report for 1-3 years.

You are also permitted to get all three of your credit reports once each year free of charge. If you have not requested your free credit reports in the last year, you may call 877-322-8228 and request them. They will arrive in 7 - 10 business days after your order.
