Hard Inquires Removed Caused Credit to Drop 61pts!!!!!!!!
I got an email stating my credit score went down. I signed into credit karma and seen my score went down 61 points!!!!!! According to credit karma the only thing that changed was the fact that 4 hard inquires have been removed and my account balance decreased by $400. I confused as to why this would cause my credit score to drop so much. Has this happened to anyone before? Can someone help me understand why this happened. I was under the impression that hard inquires being removed and balance decrease is a good thing.
