I know someone who just consolidated all there credit and there score droped 200 points from like 700 something to 500 something, and they r pretty upset after they saw the score. What can i tell them to do? I don't really know any advice to give them for this but i do know that they didn't realize it would be this significant. They have never missed a payment and always had good scores. R they pretty much starter now all over again?
Honestly that doesn't sound right; what specificaly did he do and what's on the reports now? Did he go through some Debt Management Program, as that's a pretty big negative in it's own right when reported is my understanding of it.
Without the actual report data, it's hard for us to make a call either way, but a drop of 200 points is almost certainly a negative of some sort.
Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 670, Wally TU 700, EX 718 (11/29/13, EX 07/11/13)
Goal Score: 680 in all three (01/01/14)
