When your credit is pulled by any lender, the 3 Credit Bureaus (Equifax, Transunion, Experian) sell your information to lenders all across the country who will aggressively start calling and spamming you. Until recently there was no way for us to prevent this from happening, but we recently found out there is now a way to opt out of having your credit information sold. This is different from the Do Not Call list. This is specifically for the
credit bureaus when having your credit report pulled.
