Re: Myfico EQ report dropped because of a change of address

OP, the address didn't change your EQ FICO. You received a credit alert and as part of SW, it will grab your latest FICO score. Just like it says in the alert, the score change doesn't always occur as a result of that credit change. Your score change is just a net change after the last alert. For example, I once got an alert for +20 because I added an inquiry. Inquiries don't cause increases, but it was a dropped baddie that SW doesn't alert to that changed my score. And of course addresses and other demographic info aren't a part of FICO scoring anyway. Your change could be caused by any number of things like changes in util.
