OMG 75 Point Drop and I Dont Know Why!

WTF happened to my score, I cant figure it out can someone please explain this to me. Everything is normal and I have no crazy balances, everything is zero'd out. I have made perfect payments on my car loan since I got it, my student loans, and my kay jeweler account. I have worked so hard to bring my credit from the 550's to where its at in less than a year and now its all gone.

Can anyone explain what happened?

Then I get this alert today:

Re: OMG 75 Point Drop and I Dont Know Why!

Did Sallie Mae update the account description as, ""Arrangement made with credit grantor to make partial payments." ?
 
This seems to be going around today.  My DF's EQ score dropped 123 points because of it.
 
It appears they've begun reporting their graduated payment plans as partial payment arrangements.  DF is sending her dispute tomorrow.  We're taking this one step at a time, but we'll also take it as far as we need to in order to get it reporting the way it's supposed to.
 
Her myFICO EQ report also says the entire balance on the account is delinquent, even though she's never missed a payment on anything in her life.  This is ridiculous.

Yes and thats what I thought was doing it.

partial payments is complete bs, they give you 5 dam options when you get the loan and you pick any one of them based on your ability to pay the loan. W

hat should I be doing right now is there any way we can get this on cnn or something?

This is a big deal and needs to be taken care of immediately by sallie mae.

I am showing that everything is fine when I pull a report straight from eq, I will pull a report from myfico and see what it says.

If it's the same as my DF's report, you can expect to have a flag by the account on the Accounts screen, even though the payment history will show no late payments.  Also, the entire balance of the account will show as being delinquent, and you'll have negative reason codes involving recent delinquency.
 
I'm so disgusted with this.

Well checked my myfico eq and there is a flag next to the account but it doesnt say why but it does say that partial payment plan has been made. Other than that no lates reported on the account still.

Go into the "Understanding your score" section and look at the shiny new red bars on the scale.
 
Ugh.
