score went down over two collections already on there
I just checked my credit score again today. Transunion went down 30 points and showed it was due to new collections. These collections have been on the report since 2014. I have been paying on them all along. Since they have always been on there, why did it just take my score down this week and say they detected two new collections? In addition, Equifax added a tax lien to my report which took the score down. It was from January 2009 and it had already ben removed. Does anybody know why thy would add it back on?? Do I dispute these things? I don't understand why thy are affecting my score now. Thanks.
