One of my student loans was sold/transferred and my score has dropped. Why?
At first it showed my loan balance as zero and I had a 15 point bump in my score. A couple days later there was a new loan holder with the original balance and my score dropped 45 points. The account age should be the same shouldn't it? It also shows it was sold/transferred so why would this have a negative impact on my score?
