I added a $300 credit card from CreditOne and my Equifax score went down 44 points!
Transunion went UP 7 points. The two reports are identical. What would cause this? What should I do?

I also applied for a credit card and got approved but as soon as I used it my score also went down 44 points, I payed it off and my score never went back up. They give false advice about trying to build your credit. I only had the card for 2 months now.
