why did my credit score drop?
I used to have a 758 score and now it is at a 702 :-( My report says there were 3 hard credit inquires. Could 3 hard credit inquires make my Fico score drop that much, or is it due to something else? I also had a new balance on a credit card of $55 which is less than 30% of my allowed credit. I have a new car loan as well. Could that have made my score drop? I thought having the car loan would help my credit NOT hurt it. Thanks for all responses, any would help.
