My Credit Score Went Down Because a Creditor Changed Their Name
Capital One changed their name to Cap1. My account balances all went down , my available credit went up, NOTHING ELSE CHANGED, but it's counting both Capital One and Cap1 account balances so it thinks my balances increased. Will this go away? Is this actually what my Vantage score is?
