30 point drop?

Hey all.


Yes, these are FAKO scores, but just updated via EQ Credit Watch.  Score dropped about 30 points.  No new accounts, no new baddies or anything.  I know FICO is the only one to really trust, but it seemed a bit odd to see such a big drop.  My overall util actually went down 1%.  Not gonna pay for FICOs till I get more baddies removed.


I've been using my new rewards card to pay for stuff, so the util on that card is high till I pay it, but its not even reporting the new balance yet.  EX dropped about 8 points and TU didn't move at all.



I don't know my start scores, but low 500s. 6/13

EQ FAKO - 578 -- 8/2013 - 596 FICO - 9/3 - 641 10/2014 - 662
EX FAKO - 633 -- 8/2013 - 652 2/22 - 668 (FICO)
TU FICO - 621 -- 8/2013 -645 3/12 - 644 6/3 - 670 10/2014 - 670

I really wouldn't let it worry you like you said it's a FAKO score and most likely way off anyway.
