Why did my credit score drop???
I just recently paid off four of my debts listed on my credit report. Why would this cause it to drop 17 points? If anything, I would expect it to raise my score. Ironically enough, my ex and I had a loan together and after it was paid off due to me making the payments each month and me finally paying off the full amount early, his credit score went up. So why would mine go down? I'm very confused and not happy about seeing this. Someone please enlighten me.
