How often should someones credit history be getting checked ? Obviously when you make a request for credit from somewhere, but other than that, should anything be triggering a credit check ?
I ask as CreditSimple send me notifications when something has poked at my credit history/report, and I seem to get them a lot over a period. Then it goes quiet for a while, then I get a bunch again (probably 3x a week for 2 weeks at a time).
I have recently made some changes with my bank which would've involved a check, but it reminded me about how often I get these notifications.
