TU dropped 91 pts!!

This might be in the wrong forum, if it is, mod please move it. I've been putting my fiancée as AU on a few of my accts, two cap ones (160$ balance on 1k cl 350 balance on 1250), Amex zync, Victoria secret 0 balance and macys 0 balance. She has an HSBC 300 balance on 600, cap one 369$ on 500 cl. Her score was previously 603 on TU and 587 on EQ. Just bought myfico reports for her earlier and her TU score is 512 with her accts as AU shown on the report, EQ score is same with no new accts reported. We've decided to focus on paying off her collection as it is only 1k all together and then send GW letters. We are livid her TU score has dropped so much! Is it bc of new accts being reported?

Re: TU dropped 91 pts!!

How old are the 5 accounts that you added her onto as an AU?  How old are the accounts that she already had?  

 

Without knowing I'd guess that the AAoA might have dropped and hurt her, not sure if that could do that much damage though.  Did the AU accounts have any lates?

Start 2/2008: TU 495 || EX 539 || EQ 528
Now 5/2013: TU 716 || EX ??? || EQ 702

Slate: $5000 Simplicity: $5000 David's Bridal: $3500 SW Chase: $3000 FNBO: $3000 Barclay NFL: $2500 BofA: $2400 Discover IT: $1700 Walmart: $1500 Victoria's Secret: $1000 Cap1: $750 Amex Zync: NPSL

I don't see how you can lose 91 based on what you posted. Maybe 20-30 for the new accounts.

 

OP, line up both reports. Start with the pos/neg factors. What changed?

This might be possible. I added my wife to my Walmart Discover card and according to Myfico, she went from 719 to 703. That's a 16 point drop. Multiply that by 5 and you have about 80 points drop. So it might be possible. The range of her lost is close.

Hate to say it, but your accounts dropped her score.  If those accounts are younger than her AAOA, that's probably what did it.

AMEX BCE, Citi Forward, Chase Freedom
