I literally JUST posted how I was feeling like an addict to this site cause I was expecting a score increase soon and was coming on here like 354038504 times a day waiting for the jump. Went to browse the CC forum, and Mortgage forum, noticed I got signed out, signed back in, BAM SW alert, went from a 558 EQ to a 612!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have been talking with a lender about having a house built through a company that only does USDA loans, we need a 640, we didn't expect to have a 640 till the end of the year. HA! OMG!!! Only thing that stinks, is I have no clue why or how he (hubby) got the 54 point increase! We had a 30 day late payment removed, but I just talked to them around a week ago and she said it should report next month, and we settled a FP CC that got CO'd last May, balance was $368, paid $272, FP reported 3/10 a $96 balance instead of $0, they said they thought we just made a payment to the CA, not settled, they were notified it was a settlement after they reported it, so it would be updated on or around 4/15. I did dispute it with EQ though cause as soon as I saw the $96 I was pissed, so I instantly disputed then called FP. I literally yelled OH MY GOD, jumped out of my bed, ran into the kitchen and was jumping up and down telling my husband "YOUR SCORE IS A 612, YOUR SCORE IS A 612" lmao this actually makes a 101 point increase in less than a month!!! He had a 511 at the beginning of the month!!

Ain't it grand to get a HUGE jump like that -- and just when you really need it?
Sometimes it seems like it takes forever to get a score change and then -- BLAMMO!

I think I know why.. he had 2 collections due to fall off according to TU one 5/2013, one 07/2013. When I saw the 5/2013, I thought, that's not right, it's supposed to march 2013. I knew either EQ or EX CR said it was supposed to 3/2013, so I'm assuming that has to be what it is. It was EQ that said it was due to fall off this month.
