Fico score decrease for opening a dispute??
I opened a dispute on 6 accounts on my Equifax report and immediately (the next day) my true Fico score dropped 45 points. No other changes have been made to my credit report. Will my credit score go back up even if my dispute proves unsuccessfull? I just find it unfair that disputing these negative items would drop my scores so drastically. Anybody have any insight on this?
