UTIL and Collection

FP changed the CO balance due to ZERO which cuts my UTIL by 48%

 

Can anyone else who has had that much come off their UTIL give me

 

an Idea of about how many points you got for that?

 

I also had a collection from 5/2011 come off can anyone who has had a collection

 

that recent come off let me know what kind of points you got?

 

Thanks :smileyhappy:

Re: UTIL and Collection

 

It's really impossible to predict, although it should have a positive effect, you might gain 5 points or 50.    If the CO balance was also included as part of your overall CL then it may not be much of a big boost.    Removing the collection will be positive, but it really depends on what other negatives are showing on your report as to how much it will help.
