What makes a credit score decrease?
I paid off $2000 towards my $17000 debt but my Vantagescore dropped 5 points this month... any reason this may be? The only other thing that has happened between this month and last is that I had a (non-requested) limit increase on one of my credit cards - could this have caused it? Nothing else has occurred on my accounts.
