You know, after I sent the note above it occurred to me......

Unfortunately, that simple fact they sent it to a couple dozen banks may give the dealer an out to a lot of these charges.

Since they didn't pull the credit reports - those couple dozen banks did - would they still be considered the person pulling the report under the Fair Credit Reporting Act? There's a possibility they may not.

I'd hate to see them get away with crap like this, but I fear they may have a big loophole they can jump through for most of it.
