It dropped because you reported fraud.

Part of the job of the Credit Bureaus is to protect the lenders from taking chances by making bad loans.  when you reported the fraud, the CB took the step of lowering your score in order to prevent lenders from making loans to the wrong person.  If no other fraudulant activity is reported your score should bounce back shortly,

good luck

WTH??? Where you got that idea from? Show us where in CB's site or in FCRA that stated as such? Or any legitimate sites for that matter, I really like to know.

The score drop was from new credit card issued, your credit score react to it same as opening a new credit card.
