Collection error removed from credit report, credit score went down
Last week I noticed Transunion had incorrectly added a collection on my report, and when they removed it, my Experian credit score went down 50 points, yet Transunion score only went up
19 points. Not sure why that would affect my Experian account when nothing else changed.

There has to have been a change to thet Exprian report for the score to go down.  I'd recommend paying attention to your credit card balances (utilization) and payment history on all accounts.  

Are there any new inquiries?
