Explination of Credit Score.
I have paid in full 4 of 6 debts ( that I am aware of) in collections, and I also filed 2 disputes. I am unclear as to why my credit score went from 552 up to 571 and immediately dropped back down to the original score. Can someone please explain to me why this may have happened?

When you took care of your collection debts, did you have them remove the collection account from your credit?  If not, it still shows as having existed, which can ding you.
