credit score dropped 75 points after getting credit card???
After apparently taking bad advice from credit karma and getting a secured card to rebuild my credit I was surprised to see my score had dropped 75 points!! I was very upset because I have been working hard rebuilding and was just now at a score of 600. Once the card showed up on my credit report it dropped to 525! Is this long term or will it go back up pretty fast? I am very discouraged with all of this right now.
