What would happen to my score?

Used to check only EQ score and it was 779 for the last 2 months. CA placed a collection this week for a 2003 rent and I'm going to DV it. I'm confident it's a mistake from the leasing company. Never checked TU and EX scores before. Pulled both yesterday, TU:669 and EX:637. Both TU and EX show the Collection account while EQ does not and that may be the reason its above 700?
While I do DV and dispute with CA it may take months, what would happen to my scores will it go down further below 600s, that's my main worry now.

Re: What would happen to my score?

well it will drop and probably by a lot.  some here have said 90 points is a possibility.

Oww. Definitely. Fresh collections can drop the score easy 30-90 points. :smileysad: Need to have it removed, just not paid/satisfied.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.
