Paying down credit card
It seems the more I pay on a credit card, the lower my credit score drops.

Start paying it on time?

Seriously, there is a lot more to it than you are revealing. Perhaps somthine else is causing your score to decrease. You need to provide a bit more information or learn more about how scores work to see if maybe it is something else causing your score to decrease.

What causes score to decrease?

  • Late payments.
  • Carrying more then 20% debt to your credit limit.
  • Inquiries.
  • Getting a new card.
  • Public records.
