Does disputing your credit report impact your score temporarily?
I have been seeing increases in my credit report since I started and this last increase was 41 points. The only real reason I can think of for the increase is either my credit cards continue to report a zero balance on my credit cards or my recent disputes to my credit report. I'm excited to have a 720 but I'm worried about the accuracy. Should I expect the score to drop when if the creditors verify the reportings? Where can I get my true credit score and not an estimate?
