30 point drop?

Hey all.


Yes, these are FAKO scores, but just updated via EQ Credit Watch.  Score dropped about 30 points.  No new accounts, no new baddies or anything.  I know FICO is the only one to really trust, but it seemed a bit odd to see such a big drop.  My overall util actually went down 1%.  Not gonna pay for FICOs till I get more baddies removed.


I've been using my new rewards card to pay for stuff, so the util on that card is high till I pay it, but its not even reporting the new balance yet.  EX dropped about 8 points and TU didn't move at all.



I don't know my start scores, but low 500s. 6/2013

EQ FAKO - 638
EX FICO - 665
TU FICO - 697

Re: 30 point drop?

I really wouldn't let it worry you like you said it's a FAKO score and most likely way off anyway.

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
