That will do it....everytime.:smileysad: I'm sorry to hear about the decrease but you'll get it back in time. If they see any changes they go crazy with decreases thinking the worlds ending.

Hi Frank,

 

We've seen this happen to many credit card holders lately...and not just from Macy's. Credit granting has gotten much tighter. It doesn't take much of a negative on one of your credit reports to make another of your creditors nervous.

 

You list all 3 of your scores here...can I ask where you got them? Are these true FICO scores, or are they scores of a different type (called FAKOs here)? I ask because you list your EX score, yet consumers can no longer buy their EX FICO scores.

 

Your collection account could have made them nervous. Be vigilant...an adverse action from one creditor could bring on others.

 

Have you called them about this? If a few cases we've seen creditors restore credit limits...but many won't.
