What is VISDSNB?
VISDSNB is a code that you may encounter on your credit report, representing Visa Department Store National Bank. This code often appears as a hard inquiry when you apply for a department store credit card issued by Visa, such as a Macy’s credit card.
To better understand the implications of VISDSNB, let’s delve into what hard inquiries are and how they impact your credit score.
The Impact of Hard Inquiries on Your Credit Score
Hard inquiries occur when a financial institution, such as a credit card issuer or a lender, checks your credit as part of their decision-making process. These inquiries typically cause your credit score to drop by a few points.
While the impact may seem minimal, an accumulation of hard inquiries in a short period of time can significantly damage your credit score. This is because multiple inquiries can indicate a higher level of risk, as it may appear that you are seeking multiple new lines of credit.
How long do hard inquiries stay on your credit report?
Hard inquiries stay on your credit report for up to two years. Each time you apply for credit or initiate a hard inquiry, one or all three of the major credit reporting agencies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — record the inquiry.
The good news is that the impact of hard inquiries on your credit score lessens over time, and after two years, they are removed from your credit report entirely.
Removing VISDSNB from Your Credit Report
If you wish to remove VISDSNB from your credit report, there are several strategies you can pursue. The first option is to dispute the hard inquiry directly with the credit reporting agency. This process requires drafting a dispute letter, explaining why you believe the inquiry is inaccurate and requesting its removal from your report.
However, disputing an inquiry can be a time-consuming and potentially frustrating process, with no guarantee of success even if you have a strong case. In such situations, credit repair companies like Credit Saint can be a valuable resource.
