I had 2 collections on my report 1 of which was not mine and the other is an old trash pick up bill I had forgotten about after I moved.
The 1 thay wasn't mine was a bill from verizon for $788. After proving to the collection company that i had AT&T during that time they agreed to remove the collection from my report. The collection came off of my report today with the other collection from my trash pick up still remaining (waiting on pay for delete confirmation letter).
After falling off however my score dropped 25 points! Wth?!? After quite a bit of research the only possible thing I can think of to cause this is maybe rebucketing. Is rebucketing really a thing? Is there any other possible reason my score would drop 25 points.
Only other option I could think about was possibly AAoA. But it didnt drop much. Went from 6 years 7 months to 6 years 2 months. I dont see how that would over power the fact a collection came off!
Any advice or insight to set my mind at ease while trying to rebuild my credit would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I don't think the removal of the collection caused the score drop.
