Credit reference Search???

I clicked on the home page "Credit Card Eligibility Checker" and within a minute I have a search result for Money Saving Expert on my Experian Credit report????? I havent even applied for any cards or filled in an application form even though it states on the web page that it would be added to my credit referance! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrr:(

    Taken from the 'Credit Card Eligibillity Checker' page:

    "Unlike applying, which leaves a mark on your credit file, we use a ‘soft search’ – which you can see on your file, but lenders can’t. So it NEVER impacts your ability to get credit in future."

    It's nothing to worry about.
