How to Remove TBOM/CONTFIN From Your Credit Report


Is TBOM/CONTFIN hurting your credit score?

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


TBOM/CONTFIN is a credit report code that stands for The Bank of Missouri/Continental Finance.

It’s possible that TBOM/CONTFIN is appearing on your credit report as a hard inquiry. Usually, this happens when you apply for a Continental Finance credit card issued by The Bank of Missouri.

The Impact of Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Score

When you apply for credit, such as a loan or a credit card, the lender will typically perform a hard inquiry to review your creditworthiness. Hard inquiries are recorded on your credit report and may cause a temporary dip in your credit score. While a single inquiry may only lower your score by a few points, multiple inquiries within a short time frame can have a more significant impact.

How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?

Hard inquiries can remain on your credit report for up to two years. These inquiries are recorded by one or more of the three major credit reporting agencies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. However, the impact of a hard inquiry on your credit score generally diminishes over time, with the most significant impact occurring in the first year.
