Maxing out a credit card for a very short period?
I used my cc for a necessity and it took up about 70% of my limit. I paid it off in a week but was reported to the CRA and my score dropped 36 points!
Will it be restored soon since it is now paid off and carries a near zero balance or stay low for a while before it goes back up?
