How did my "Total Accounts" go down?
On the "Total Accounts" section (https://beta.creditkarma.com/myfinances/totalaccounts) I see my accounts at 20 up through August of 2012. Then in December of 2012 it drops to 19. How can this "Total" go down?

This just happened to me, too. My only negative account dropped off over a year ago, so I'm flummoxed.

Number of Accounts Change

Was it an old collection account?  If so, and it has been more then 7 years old, its due to come off your credit profile.
