How to Remove DFS/Webbank From Your Credit Report


Is DFS/Webbank hurting your credit score?

Credit Saint has successfully assisted countless clients in removing inaccurate and questionable credit inquiries from their credit reports.

What is DFS/Webbank?

DFS/Webbank is a credit report code that represents Dell Financial Services/WebBank. It may appear on your credit reports as a hard inquiry if you apply for a Dell Preferred Account or Dell Business Card with Dell Financial Services, which are issued by WebBank. Both accounts offer revolving lines of credit with special financing offers for consumers and businesses, respectively.

The Difference Between Hard and Soft Inquiries

When it comes to credit checks, there are two main types: hard inquiries and soft inquiries. Understanding the difference between these two types of inquiries can help you manage your credit health more effectively.

Hard Inquiries and Your Credit Score

Hard inquiries occur when you apply for new credit, and the lender or creditor runs a credit check. These inquiries can have a negative impact on your credit score, although the effect is generally minimal. However, if you accumulate multiple hard inquiries in a short period, they can significantly impact your credit score.

Soft Inquiries: A Non-Impactful Credit Check

On the other hand, soft inquiries are typically initiated as part of background checks or prequalification assessments by credit card issuers or lenders. These types of inquiries don’t affect your credit score and can be performed without your explicit authorization.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Hard inquiries remain on your credit report for up to two years, regardless of whether you were approved by Dell Financial Services or any other creditor. They are recorded by one or all of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

Addressing Unauthorized Inquiries

If you find an unauthorized hard inquiry on your credit reports, it’s essential to contact DFS/WebBank or the listed creditor to inquire about the reason for the inquiry. This can help you identify potential fraud or errors in your credit reports.
