Re: FICO score increase with inquiries?

I have to agree my score dropped from 559 to 532 and the only change I had was a mortgage broker checking my credit (just 1 time) and paying off an old collection acount and I freaked out in tears. Because I am trying to refinance and cashout but its very stressful trying to increase your scores by paying off old accounts.
