Your loss in the recent election caused the rating agencies to downgrade you.  Mitt?


As if my lobbyists would ever let that happen. Smiley Happy

 

Hint #3: I do not have any late payments

 

Some people have come pretty close. After I explain my situation once the 24 hours mark is passed, the person whose guess is the closest can have his/her username put in my signature line with recognition and respect for a week/month. Robot Very Happy

Re: Guess the cause of my score drop

You used a ton of credit on one card in a drunken bender. While still drunk you realized that you couldn't pay if all off this month and you would have a UTIL hit to your score.

As a result, you said why the hell not and drapped for 3 credit cards. Two were instant approval (GE cards that are already reporting) and the third was 7-10 day message. The following morning you recon the card and they pulled another CR.

An Authorized user or an ex went on a shopping spree and ran your usage way up.

You used the card in Vegas went on a binge at while passed out someone did some serious gambling

 

You froze your accounts against Sp's and a lender became suspicious.

Re: Guess the cause of my score drop

The Feds have starting seizing his assets due to finally having evidence that he is a kingpin in the international drug trade, and some CRAs think this may impact his future creditworthiness.

 

I'm pretty sure that that is the correct answer, and we will know I'm right when he denies it.

Nope. You pretty much got it down.

 

By the way, just kidding.

 

See, I didn't deny it.
