In December 2019 I went to Derrick dodge to purchase a new truck, at that time I had only 2 payments left with a lender on a previous purchase. The deal was my financing for the new truck would included the 2 payments owing so when I sat down with the financing person to get the financing for the truck and agreed to let Derrick Dodge to run a credit check I was under the assumption that it would be run with the current lender that I still ahead 2 payments with. Well in January of 2020 to my horror I discovered that Derrick Dodge had run at least 8 credit checks against me all with different lending institutions and these credit checks weren’t just soft credit inquiries, these were all “ hard credit hits”, meaning for every inquiry my credit score dropped by 10-15 points.Do the math, that adds up to 80-120 point drop on my credit score. After having endured some financial hiccups in prior years I had worked extremely hard to restore my credit so that I would be able to buy a home again.It was at the time of applying for a mortgage that I discovered what Derrick dodge had done, and as a result of what they did my credit score has been diminished to the point where I no longer qualify for a mortgage.THANK YOU VERY MUCH, when I gave consent to run a credit check I never gave consent to blanket search 8 or more vendors, I Never gave consent to decimate my credit score, and the salt in the wound of all this is that the company that ended up financing my new truck was the same lender that financed my previous purchase with whom I still had a couple payments left, they never even ran a credit check on me , I’m assuming because I already had a loan with them and had a perfect 8 year track record with them.Then why the xxxx would Derrick dodge not have checked with them first before running 8 more , unauthorized checks. I am livid with the way I’ve been treated and irreversible damage that’s been done by the sleaziest dealership in Edmonton. I was told by Derrick dodge this is common practise in the industry, I say , xxxxxxxx, when someone approves a credit check, that is approval for one check, what person would give consent to have their score decimated to the point where they can’t buy a home.
