    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

Credit Score Went Down After Application Declined

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

 

In November, I applied for a post office credit card and was declined despite having near perfect scores with Experian and Equifax.

I used an eligibility checker first and it showed that I had a 95% chance of being approved so I felt confident to apply.

 

However, while filling out the application form I did notice that there were no fields to enter information as a self-employed person but I proceeded anyway by entering info about my self-employed status so it may be that they only approve those that are employed.

 

I received a letter from them confirming the decline but they didn't give a reason.

It said that they used Experian.

 

For several years I have had an Aqua card and they have increased my credit limit quite substantially.

Over the last 6 months they have sent me a letter every month encouraging me to apply for a loan for up to £5,000 using the loan code they sent.

 

I want to apply for a loan because the rate is 3X lower than their credit card rate.

However, I'm concerned about my credit score being negatively affected again

 

I wonder if someone could tell me how much time I should allow before applying for credit/loan again.

Your advice would be appreciated.

The score on the CRA files has no bearing on whether youll get accepted or not. Its there basically as a way to get money from you. "Pay us x amount and youll get to see it"

 

Each lender has its own criteria in order to meet the requirements to lend. Aqua is a sub prime lender, so it could be that the post office refused you as they can see it on your file and think you are in need of credit control and have issues which is why you went to a sub prime lender. It could even be that Your credit history/usage isnt good enough in their eyes to lend to you.

 

The only way to find out for sure is write/ring them or send a SAR


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

unless you've applied for lots of credit I cant see why an application even if a failure should ever effect your score.

nor being self employed.

Thanks guys for your replies.

 

I did apply for an Aqua card several years ago to improve my credit score and continue to use it. I'm a landlord with a number of BTL mortgages and a couple of other credit cards and a loan but no defaults so I'll apply and see what happens. I don't know how the credit scoring system works but remember hearing someone say that we should wait several months after being declined so I assumed that applying for credit again too soon would have a negative impact.
