Credit affected by fraud
I reported credit card fraud to the company as soon as I discovered it. The good companies usually catch things, this company not so much. While my CC company has started a fraud investigation, my credit score has dropped because of the amount on my card. I've nearly paid off the small amount I actually owed on it, but the bill is still way over the 30%. My husband and I are in the process of buying a house, our mortgage people are aware of the situation. I am not a fan of the drop in score. Is there anything I can do to improve this until the fraudulent charges come off of my account?
Man you work so hard to build it up...jerks...

Thanks so much!
