easy application process unless they want your credit file
if they want your credit file they take it whether you agree or not
Submitted usual info to open a Robinhood account and got an email back REQUIRING I UNFREEZE MY CREDIT. Apparently they ran a credit check without my consent and found they couldn't complete it because I had frozen my credit. They say they had to because they could not verify my identity with the social security # provided. Baloney. If you had a problem with a social security number you would email and say "there was an input error, would you provide your ss number again?" Instead, they ran an unauthorized credit check? I'm not asking for credit. What kind of SCAM IS ROBINHOOD PULLING? Getting info to send you an unasked for credit card? Setting you up for margin trades? Would people open accounts on Robinhood if they knew credit checks were being run on them? Obviously you would never know unless you had frozen your credit.
