Bank's name change dinged my score.
I just logged in here and I see that Boank of America changed its name to Bank America, and the "beginning balance" was reported as zero and "added" a great balance as if I just went on a shopping spree. That dinged my score by 60 points. Will this bank or Credit Karma eventually smooth things out?
