Paid last installment loan off - got my 0-1 point expected

[ Edited ]

We know paying off an installement loan doesn't get you much, even when it is your last remaining installment loan. I just confirmed it. My last Scorewatch alert was 9/29 for my Amex going from $0 to $264 making my 709 stay at 709. I know I have NO accounts that update after that until 3 CCs close in two more days. I just got an alert that my only remaining installment is now showing paid, which got me my ONE point. All the way from 709 to 710 - big deal. Still owe $77,933 on credit cards, though. Divorce stinks!sw.JPG

Update with the same change and its effect on CK Vantage and TransRisk:

 

Same exact credit report that gained me 1 point on FICO 04 based score (Beacon v5.0) made the following changes:

 

Vantage: DOWN 2 points to 818

 

TransRisk: DOWN 12 points to 749

 

FICO went UP and two FAKOs went DOWN.

 

Was it Illecs that said FAKO is as FAKO does? This is a good example.
