Remove more inquiries with this little known strategy
I’m going to share a quick tip with you that will help increase your odds of successfully disputing and removing questionable inquiries from your credit report. It’s simple:
- Freeze your SageStream credit before disputing your inquiries!
SageStream is a part of LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

You might have a couple questions at this point:
- What is SageStream? They are a lesser known credit bureau that stores information on you just like TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. The big three bureaus will often rely on SageStream’s data in order to verify inquiries that appear on your credit report.
- Why should I freeze my SageStream credit? When you freeze your credit at SageStream, they are not allowed to release any information about your credit to any third parties including the big three credit bureaus. This makes it THAT much harder for TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax to actually verify your inquiries – and increases the odds you will be able to get them removed. And most importantly you’re probably wondering how to freeze your SageStream credit.
