No, I was added as an AU adding 13K to my UTIL. I was at 101% UTIL but after adding the high CL, it dropped to 7%.
I got it directly from EQ (which I refresh everyday)
Sounds like this a FAKO score. While your real FICO might have gotten a bump (assuming you have no supressing baddies), your individual util is still 101%. Are you over the limit?
+1. If this is the Equifax Credit Score then ignore it. FAKOs often behave in an opposite way from FICO scores.
