Direct Dispute Successful - Credit Score Down 80+ points
$71 collection from 2014 was successfully removed after the dispute, but score went down 80+ points in both TU and EQ. Not sure what caused this to occur. This has discouraged me tremendously in taking care of my credit score. Not sure what else I can do if the dispute has successfully taken the collection out of my account but left me with a lower score.
