What happens when there are a lot of requests for my credit report?

Credit reporting agencies keep track of each time anyone other than you asks to see your credit report. These requests are called "inquiries". The agencies keep this information for 3 years.

Having a lot of inquiries can be bad for your credit score because it could be a sign that you are having financial problems.
