Okay, so a week ago my FICO score for TU was listed as 614.
Late last week, two collections accounts were deleted (after payoff as per a prior agreement with the CAs). So I figured this would have to help my score (they were fairly recent -- >12 months old inquiries, too).
I updated my score, and today?
What gives? Wouldn't the removal of negatives like this help at least a little bit? There no NEW information or updates in that time, so why wouldn't the score take at least a slight bump?
