This alert was sent because there is new activity on an account that was inactive for more than 5 months.
How newly active accounts impact your score:
You received this alert because one of your credit accounts is showing activity after having been inactive for some time. The effect this has on your FICO® score is hard to predict; it may cause your score to go up or go down.
