one score went up one score went down
I just paid off a credit card balance. One score went up 83 points (yay) but the other went down 52! Does anyone know why this would have happened?

Thats unusual but not unheard of

I would check out the one that went down to see if there is anything eing reported that is not on your other report. 

The reality is that all scores do not match all the time.  lenders genrerally report to only one credit bureau and that one cross reports to the others once a month.  The one with the lower score may not have recieved the info yet, or as i said, there could be something different being reported there.  

If you find nothing, then I would expect that lower score to rise after cross reporting around the first of next month.

Good luck
