Re: Can someone explain what happened?

I don't pull my score every month.  This is the first time I've pulled it in almost a year.  (since last June when I was at 505 TU)  I pulled it because I wanted to see what kind of increase I would have with paying all my CC down to $0 since utilization has always been an issue for me in the past.  My intent was to app for a cc or maybe two.  I wanted to see if I could get a decent prime card so I could close out one of my secured cards. 

Starting Scores 10/12: EQ 460 (FICO)/TU 502 (FAKO)/EX 474 (FAKO)
Current (7/14): EQ 572 (FICO)/TU 624 (FICO)/ EX 612 (FICO)

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
