No Score Change!!

I have had three "credit negatives" happen to me in the last month and none of them have affected my score. Maybe it is because they are being reported on the same day that I had an increase or maybe they don't affect our score as much as thought.

I had 3 inquiries and a closed account and my score is exactly the same as it was 4 weeks ago. I was really worried these inquiries would kill my score, but I guess not!

Yeah, I've noticed that FICO scoring is weird. I got a judgement removed from my Experian report and my score dropped a point. I don't understand that at all.

Was it old? Maybe your history was shortened...

How old was this judgment?

Judgments and all other public records are not factored in credit length history scoring, collections however do.

What's with the sad face? I didn't know squat some years back, so look at what this and other forums have taught me. Heck I learn something new everyday at this forum and that's no joke.

Well, yes, but there are times that every time I learn something, I have to forget something to make room for it. :smileyhappy: (Howzat?)
