Credit Score Plummets -- Seemingly No Reason
I had recently paid off my student loan debt and it was officially closed on Nov. 22. My credit score raised by 25 points, awesome. Almost 2 months later, now on January 7th of 2017, my credit score plummeted by 47 points! NOTHING negative has happened, however. The only change in my credit report was that my auto loan decreased by $300. How can this be possible? If it were in correlation to my student debt closing, it would have dropped in December... I can't figure it out, so it's driving me slightly crazy. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
