Auto Loan and Collection Debt

I read someplace that if you pay off an Auto loan before your loan term is up then it will drop your fico score because it shows that you don't understand the contract. Is this true? Also, how much can I expect my FICO score to increase once I have a collection debt removed? Hope someone can answer. Thanks for any help that anyone would like to offer.

Re: Auto Loan and Collection Debt

Not true. And the effects of having a collection removed will depend on your overall credit picture. The important thing is that the collection is gone.

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.
