This doesn't even make *sense*!My score also went up 28 points when my utilization jumped 10 points. All of a sudden the negs in the explanation listed last month aren't listed this month (even though nothing changed) and my Positive (Long Credit) became a Negative (Short Credit) even though it is a month later.I think they just use the old wheel from Price is Right.
Well on this one (TU) I have;Midland (trying to get off as OC already took off as not mine, Midland ignored DV, CRAs MOV was to call and verify CA knew my name and ss#)6 3/4 Cap1 CO (trying to pay for update to Paid or re-open account)Professional Collections (falls off end of year, the did DV but ignored PFD request)My Efax is a few points better with the Midland and Cap1 only.Hoping another month or so and Midland fall off and maybe Cap1 cooperation score will be mid 700s.
Hauling, you are indeed right on the parents AU Amex. The rest of my cards are 0 to 10 years.Still when I look at last months power report, the same exact mix (37/8) was a positive (long credit history).
That really does make it look like you're in some new sort of bucket. What it is, though, I dunno. I suppose another possibility is that last time the 37 years was a positive, and in the meantime something else in your negatives got less bad, and so this time the average age became a negative. I wish they'd split up that comment.
This sort of thing will make you as nuts as when we tried to figure out guys (or girls) when we were 14. Clues all over the place, but they don't want to add up!
